We are excited to invite you to submit your ideas to Knoxville’s BSides conference!

Though we welcome talks based on offence and defense like most other security conferences, the spirit of BSides caters to talks that are interesting to a broad crowd of security-focused peers, but perhaps not in the spirit of what the larger mainstream conferences look for. We encourage you to be creative with your ideas and talks, as long as it doesn’t result in property damage and/or arrests.

Submit your talk today!


  • CFP Opening: Jan. 15th, 2018

  • Final Notifications: April 1st, 2018
