Call for Papers / Participation - 2019

BSidesVienna 0x7E3 takes place on 30.11.2019 at Urania Dachsaal.

Submission guideline

BSides is an open, international event, the official conference language for all talks, trainings and workshops (as well as submitted abstracts) is English to ensure our foreign friends don't feel all sad panda about missing things.

Time slots

We are currently seeking a selection of presentations (30 or 60 minutes) and shorter (15-minute) lightning talks.

Relevant topics

Topics of interest include (but are in no way limited to) the following:

  • Information technology
  • Network security & Cryptography
  • Web Application security
  • Mobile security
  • Usable security
  • Virtualization and cloud computing
  • Innovative attack / defense strategies
  • Forensics / Malware
  • Embedded device security / IoT
  • Physical security and lockpicking
  • Biometrics
  • Hardware hacking
  • Phreaking
  • Biohacking and modification
  • Open source software

  • Massive abuse of technology
  • Evolutionary computing
  • History & Philosophy of computing
  • Ethical and philosophical implications of hacking
  • Disrupting politics & society (in a constructive way)
  • Creating and maintaining safe-spaces & encouragement of female participation

The Jargon Lexicon contains a nice definition we think fits very well here:

hacker: n. [...] 7. One who enjoys the intellectual challenge of creatively overcoming or circumventing limitations. [...]
