Call for Speakers & Save the Date

Announcing the date for the next annual FIRST TC in Amsterdam, NL: April 6 - April 8, 2020. The call for papers and registration is now open!
To submit your abstract for review:
Registration is open and always fills up quickly
The main event, hosted by Cisco Systems in Amsterdam, Netherlands will be a plenary style conference held on the 7th and 8th of April 2020. We are also planning to host optional, free, training or workshops on Monday, April 6th.
The idea behind the TC is to encourage security teams and talented researchers to share their technical work in a friendly environment. We strongly encourage any individual who has not spoken at a conference before to submit a proposal. While we give special consideration to local talent, submissions are welcome from anyone, anywhere (although travel and other expenses are not covered by FIRST).
We are most interested in new presentations and presenters. We can also mentor or help new presenters review their materials in preparation for submission. Any novel ideas, techniques, case studies, or research related to incident and threat response are welcome. Some suggested topics are as follows:
Threat actor groups & techniques
Creative incident response techniques
Real-world security incidents/events
Indicators of compromise and how to detect/mitigate
Data analytics for security
Criminal underground / State-backed actors
Denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures
Digital forensics
Human-computer interaction, security, and privacy
Intrusion and anomaly detection and prevention
Monetization of cybercrime
Open Source tools
Threat Hunting
How organizations protect themselves against attacks
Operationalizing Threat Intelligence
Relevant geopolitical cybersecurity research

All talks must be 45 mins (with Q&A)
For your submission to be considered, you must provide ALL of the following information:
Presenter's Name(s), Affiliation, and a short biography
Brief Summary (Abstract)

TC Workshops:
We are still looking for good half-day to full-day workshops or training sessions. These would need to be able to handle at least 50 people. Message [email protected] if interested.

TC Sponsors:
We are still looking for one additional sponsor - please message [email protected] if interested.

We would like to have a semi-official blogger for the event. We would like the individual to listen and blog about the presentations. Please send your @twitter and a little about you if interested to [email protected]
Important Notes:
FIRST does not allow presentations with the aim of gaining the audience's interest in any commercial application, solution or product. In other words:
Please only submit a talk if you are actually able to attend the TC in Amsterdam.
This is a free conference and we cannot sponsor travel or other honorarium support.
Our goal is to have the program on the event website by the end of February 2019, to that end please have all submissions completed by February 15th.
