Call For Papers

Thank you for your interest in BSidesCharm. Our 2019 event is going to be our biggest ever, and will prove to be one of the largest and more memorable BSides events world-wide. We invite you to join us and we look forward to reviewing your submission!

Why speak at BSidesCharm?
  • 1200 expected attendees for 2019!
  • Two tracks of talks
  • 50 minute and 20 minute talks accepted
  • Two training tracks, accepting full-day and half-day courses
  • A predominantly blue-team, defense audience base, but with lots of love for offensive, too
  • Talks are optionally recorded

As we noted on our website, we outgrew the limitations of the Baltimore Convention Center. To meet the size of our ever expanding audience, last year we moved to the Sheraton in Towson, MD.

BSidesCharm will be held on the weekend of 27-28 April, 2019.

The CFP/CFT will close on Sunday 27 Jan 2019 at 11:59 PM EST.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent out on or around 11 Feb, 2019.
