Call for Teachers

SEC-T2ion 2017 CFP is OPEN

The SEC-T Organizer team is proud to announce the start of the 2017 call for papers for the first annual SEC-T2ion workshop training event in Stockholm, Sweden.

This Call for Papers extends to teachers of one day or two day workshops that would like to organize classes in conjunction with the annual SEC-T information security conference.

What and When

SEC-T is an non-profit, English speaking, two day, single track information security conference taking place in late summer every year in Stockholm, Sweden. At SEC-T we focus on providing our audience with high quality talks and in depth “QnA” with speakers. SEC-T is a conference where you can feel safe from sales pitches and marketing presentations as we have a large focus on our speakers research and first person accounts.

The SEC-T conference is divided into three separate parts; the SEC-T2ion, the Community Night event, and the SEC-T conference:

  • The SEC-T2ion [Di-sec-tion], are our in-depth workshop training sessions taking place on the 12-13:th of September.
  • The Community Night event is a free event intended to be inclusive of students and non-ticket holders, taking place on the evening of the 13:th of September.
  • The SEC-T conference is the main conference taking place on the 14-15:th of September.

All events take place at the venue Anrika Nalen in Stockholm, Sweden.

The SEC-T2ion workshops can span over one or two days and we can handle no more than three simultaneous workshops. In the event of two one-day workshops being accepted these will be bundled to the students as one two day workshop on two different topics.

Classes will have an enrollment of no less than four and no more than eight students and students will be required to have or state their prerequisite skills in accordance with your wishes.

As this is the first year we decided to organize SEC-T2ion there are undoubtedly some kinks to be ironed out and we are expecting a learning curve. Therefore a lot of collaboration between teachers and organizers are likely required.
