Who Should Submit?

If you are developing a practical solution to problems in cybercrime investigation and analysis; cyber incident response; digital forensics and analysis; legal problems, issues, or innovations; or problems related to infrastructure protection, then we invite you to submit.

Types of Submissions

We are accepting submissions for Track Session breakouts, Keynote Speakers, Training opportunities, Lightning Round sessions and Demonstrations. As well as general speaker suggestions, particularly speakers with expertise in the areas of Advanced Manufacturing and Financial Management.

Track Sessions: Submissions for Track talks should specify an alignment under one of the below themes:
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Forensics & Threat Analysis
  • Governance, Risk & Compliance
  • Innovation
  • *Research
  • Technical

Keynote Sessions: Speakers selected as a keynote speaker will address the attendees in the general plenary session.

Training Session: The summit opens with 2 days of training. Training submissions can be 1 or 2 days.

Lightning Rounds: Pitch your latest tools and techniques in a rapid-fire, 15-min demonstration live on one of the Lighting Round stages. See prospectus for details.

Demonstrations: Rent the Lightning Round booth for 30 minutes to demo your technology and cybersecurity solutions. This is a paid event. See the prospectus for details.

Tips for being selected as a speaker this year:

  • We prefer sessions that are technically intermediate and advance. Those looking to provide a sales pitch should submit for a Lightning Round session.
  • Track sessions should be more technical and less of a sales pitch and include live demonstrations.
  • Apply early as speaking spots will be awarded monthly starting in December until all spots are full. (Spots were filled by February for the 2018 program.)
