BSidesLisbon 2024

Thank you for your interest in the BSidesLisbon 2024 Call for Papers!

We are looking for topics in the technical area of cyb^Winformation security. Doesn't matter if it's reverse engineering, web apps, or netsec. If it's infosec we are in for it!

We do however have a few rules:

  • The talk and slides must be in English – Even though it's Lisbon we always have lots of foreign friends visiting our beautiful country and even presenting!
  • We will record all presentations for publication on our Youtube channel. If publishing your presentation poses an issue for you then please select the "Don't record this talk" checkbox in the submission form.
  • You must give your talk with passion! :)

Submissions will be reviewed by our "Call for Papers" review board.

The board will review all the talks and give them a rating, speakers will get at least a 1 month warning on either their talk has been accepted or not.

Speaking slots

As in the previous year, we will have the following:

Regular Talks:

Presentation slots with a fixed duration of 45 minutes plus 10 minutes for Q&A.

Short Talks:

Presentation slots with a fixed duration of 20 minutes plus 5 minutes for Q&A.


The CFP deadline for submissions is September 15, 2024 23:59:59 WEST

Your talk won’t be picked IF:

  • It’s a sales pitch (vendor based talk / product talk)
  • Talks that don’t have the minimum information when submitted (including correct contact information)

Tips from the review board:

  • Be as detailed as possible: Don't give us just a title and a paragraph. (we don't need a full paper, but give us enough detail :);
  • Be clear! Help us understand what is it you want to speak about, why it matters, and what attendees will get out of it;
  • Submit early: We will be approving talks, and filling slots, throughout the review process. The later you submit, the less chance you have of being picked;
  • Make sure your contact information is accurate!!! Every year there's some wrong email address that we are unable to get in touch with. We have some OSINT skills, but we have other priorities :) If you don't receive an automated email confirming your submission, something was wrong, let us know ASAP.
