LASCON 2020 Call for Papers now open!

Submit your CFP

  • The CFP will close on June 30, 2020. Submissions will be reviewed and you will be contacted via the email address you provide on the form.
  • We will announce all selected talks by July 15, 2020 and ask that speakers respond by July 24th.

IMPORTANT! We are very much aware of the current concerns with COVID-19 and that an in-person conference may not be possible. At this point in time we are continuing to plan for an in-person conference, being optimistic that by October the situation will improve. However, we want to ensure we have alternative plans, such as making the conference virtual. With that in mind, we request that talks be designed for presenting either in-person or virtual. If virtual, we will provide the necessary technical guidelines and assistance to speakers.

Got a talk idea? We want to see it!

The LASCON conferences are true security conferences with all talks and presentations focusing on various areas of information security. Topics should focus on the technical and social aspects of security, and should not contain marketing or sales pitches.

You can review the past LASCON talks. to get an idea of types of talks we are seeking.

Speaker Package

We know speakers are key to the success of a conference and hope you will submit a talk. In appreciation of your efforts, we include the following:

  • All speakers receive full, free admission to the entire two-day conference.
  • Speakers are given speaker badges and speaker SWAG.
  • Speakers are invited to a Speakers Dinner (a casual event, held the evening before the conference).
  • For international speakers, if accepted, we can provide a letter of confirmation for your visa submission.
  • Your abstract and recording will be archived on LASCON sites. (See previous LASCON talks.)

Diversity Matters!

LASCON is committed to creating a conference that is as inclusive as possible. We want to showcase talent available around the U.S. and welcome international submissions as well.

We are also committed to ensuring the conference is a place where ideas are exchanged, old friends get together, new friends meet and harassment is not tolerated. We expect speakers, attendees and sponsor representatives to be professional and courteous to each other. We reserve the right to remove, without refund, ANY attendee (speaker or otherwise) who is unable to adhere to this policy.
