Geek Street | Call for Speakers

Do you have new information security research that you would like to reveal in November 2020?

We would like to invite you to submit the research you want considered for inclusion in the Geek Street program of talks. We’re looking for fresh new research into the latest threats, exploits and vulnerabilities to be presented by the hacker and security research community.

Launched in 2018 at Infosecurity Europe, Geek Street is a new and exciting feature consisting of immersive, hands on experiences and in-depth technical research sessions.

The submissions will be reviewed by the Geek Street review panel. Please note there are a limited number of sessions to be filled throughout the 2 days of conference program.

Key Dates:

C4P opens: May 2020

C4P closes: Friday 26th June (5pm EDT)

Successful and unsuccessful submissions notified: August 2020

What you need to know

Who can submit a proposal?

The call for research is open to everyone and there is no charge to speak at the event. The event is strictly vendor neutral and is a forum for the open sharing of research, tools and techniques.

When do the Geek Street sessions take place?

They take place on the 18th – 19th of November 2020 at Javits Center New York City during Infosecurity New York City.

How long are the sessions?

Each session is 45 minutes long to enable a  deep-dive into the technical research/topic. This will include 35-40 minutes for the  presentation and 5-10 minutes for Q&A. 

What is the review panel looking for?

The review panel is looking for unique and original content, deep-diving into practical case studies and unique business solutions.
Presentations that highlight new vulnerabilities and exploits will be particularly appealing to the review panel.
