Call For Papers

Guess who’s back, back again, Bsides(Orlando)’s back baby!!!

B-Sides Orlando is being held April 5h and 6th at the Wyndham Resort on International Drive, so not only do you get to hang out with security nerds, you’ll get to hang out with tourists!

We don’t organize our tracks into physical locations, but basically like tags for attendees to figure out if they should go. On a basic level.


This track will cover a variety of topics with a focus on foundational skills every infosec practitioner should know. If you are new to infosec or wanting to make the switch to a security career this is the track for you! This will also be an opportunity for first time speakers to get some exposure as well in a friendly environment. HINT: If you’ve been peeing your pants worrying about submitting for the first time, this will be an awesome oppourtunity to do so!


This track is all about making things and defending them. We hope to have everything from microcontroller sessions and building secure web apps to deploying countermeasures that will sure to ruin the day of any attacker. This is really where the rubber meets the road for most internal security professionals. Let’s make internal security cooler!

The Wrecking Ball

I CAME IN LIKE A WRECKINGGG BALLLL! I NEVER MEANT TO START IT ALLLLLL! Say what you will about the value of pentests, but this is the really fun stuff. Where we bring down that house of cards and show just how tenuously things are put together. This track is all offense, all the time. We have no official stance on disclosure, speakers accept their own risk here but we all geek out pretty hardcore when we see 0-day. If you prefer your talk to not be recorded, this is where you will want to submit.

Interactive Learning Time

Do you like teaching and being hands on with attendees? Well, then, you should run a workshop. To be different, we call these our Interactive Learning Time™

More info:

Each speaker will be given 45 minutes for their talk. Please keep the topics in mind when writing up your proposal and submit to where you think it will fit. If you don’t, we’ll get very stern with you. Very, very stern.. We only have a limited number of spots, so act fast!

We are closing the CFP on March 14th! So get those submissions in as soon as possible! First come, first serve.

If you say you are releasing code, tools, sploitz, etc at the conference then do it. Very little annoys us more than empty promises.

If you need to alter any information for your submission, please email us:

If you would prefer your talk to not be recorded or live streamed, we get that, so please point that out when you submit your abstract.
