ISSW 2015 : Infosec Southwest


When Apr 10, 2015 - Apr 12, 2015
Where Austin, TX, USA
Submission Deadline Jan 15, 2015

Call For Papers

The InfoSec Southwest staff are now soliciting papers to be presented at our 2015 conference to be held April 10th through April 12th 2015 in Austin, Texas.

Who Should Submit

InfoSec Southwest is intended to be a general security and hacking conference with no specific industry or topical focus. As such, nearly all topics (other than vendor pitches) are fair game and the attending audience is expected to span all demographics. Thus, we cordially invite anyone who has a paper to present to submit for inclusion in the conference.

Conference Format

InfoSec Southwest currently has a single track slated for presentation. The track is intended for traditional, full-length (1 hour) presentations and lectures. Presentation should be around 40 minutes in length then provide 15 minutes for questions and answers. This is the track where invited speakers and speakers selected via the CFP process will present. During our new two-hour lunch break at the Alamo Drafthouse, we will host our open forum which is modeled after our local AHA! (Austin Hackers Association) group's monthly meetings and is an open forum for first-come, first-served lighting and turbo talks (5 to 15 minutes).

Preferred Topics

This year we are introducing formal debates, which will face-off two experts on the debate topic against each other in a moderated, structured debate format. We welcome suggestions for both debate topics as well as debate contenders.
