BSides Barcelona Call for Papers

We are looking for talented, humorous, inspiring, and/or provocative speakers to host talks, lightning talks, and workshops. We welcome and encourage first-time speakers and members of underrepresented communities to apply.

We are very open to different topics around privacy, security, community, and how technologies relate to society, and therefore open to any topics within those areas.

We do not accept sales pitches or showcases of a specific product/software/service.

Preference is given to talks that are up-to-date, and innovative and provide solutions as well as insight to problems.
