Welcome to 2019 BSides London


We invite CFP submissions for BSides London 2019, to be held on the 5th June, 2019 in London, UK.

This year our focus will be on a theme that has been on in the technology sector for the last 25 years, but only now is it breaking into marketing and hype. You guessed it, machine learning, artificial, assisted, augmented intelligence.

With so many new claims of the next digital saviour, is it just hype or a is there something in it.

“My Machine Isn't Learning”

We're looking for original contributions that present machine learning and technology intelligence through attacks, analyses, designs, applications, protocols, systems, practical experiences, and theory.

As usual the theme is not prescriptive, and proposals may include (but are not limited to) the following topics:

  • Information technology
  • Network security & Cryptography
  • Web Application security
  • Mobile security
  • Usable security
  • Virtualization and cloud computing
  • Innovative attack / defense strategies
  • Forensics / Malware
  • Embedded device security / IoT
  • Physical security and lockpicking
  • Biometrics
  • Hardware hacking
  • Biohacking and modification
  • Open source software
  • Robotics (bonus points for bringing an actual robot)
  • Massive abuse of technology
  • Evolutionary computing
  • Ethical and philosophical implications of hacking
