Call For Papers - DEFCON 25

  • Presentation Information

  • Scheduling - We work diligently to accommodate special speaking time-slots, but cannot guarantee any specific availability. If you have special circumstances limiting when you can speak, please let us know ASAP otherwise we may not be able to accept your submission.

  • SEVillage will provide 1 LCD projector feed, 1 screen, microphones, wired and/or wireless Internet

  • Speaker Bio's:

  • Abstract and Other Info

  • Your abstract will be used for the website and printed materials. Summarize what your presentation will cover. Attendees will read this to get an idea of what they should know before your presentation and what they will learn after. Use this to inform about how technical your talk is, what tools will be used, and what materials to read in advance to get the most out of your presentation. This abstract is the primary way people will be drawn to your session.
  • You must provide a detailed outline containing the main points and navigation through your talk - show how you intend to begin, where you intend to lead the audience, and how you plan to get there. The better your outline the better we are able to review your presentation against other submissions (and the higher the chance you have of being accepted).
  • Submission Agreements

    Please read and accept these terms by inserting your name where noted. Failure to do so will render your submission incomplete.
