Call for Papers & Workshops

BSides Munich is a venue for security professionals, software engineers, students, researchers and visionaries. We’re targeting local comunities in and around Munich, but everyone from all the corners of the world is welcome. The conference gathers the security community in an event to share and discuss novel ideas, initiatives and advancements. The conference will take place on the 8th & 9th of April 2018.

You can see last year’s recordings on and the agenda on our website.

The deadline for submission is February 1, 2018.


We are soliciting talks on computer security topics, but are not limited to the following:

  • Security Architecture
  • Threat Analysis
  • Penetration Testing
  • Embedded Security
  • Security Tools
  • Security Management
  • Privacy

We will do our best to provide mentors for all speakers who want additional feedback and support. We especially encourage first time speakers to take advantage of this service.

Rookie Speakers

If you are interested in speaking at an infosec conference about a topic that is dear to you, but you are new or shy, here is your chance! Just add a short “rookie” note in your CFP submission, and we will gladly help you along the way.

The infosec community is full of smart people. But, public speaking does not come easy for all of us. So, we are here to encourage and support those who have doubts or a hard time deciding whether or not to go for it. BSidesMunich 2018 will have two different stages: a main stage and a rookie stage. On the rookie stage you will have a smaller, supportive audience! If you have something you want to talk about, submit it; even if you are not sure it will be a good enough fit for the conference.
