Submissions that highlight original and innovative research, tools, vulnerabilities, etc. will be given priority.
We recommend submitting as early as possible as slots are super limited.
Authors will be contacted directly if review board members have any questions about a submission.
Once the review process is complete, all authors will receive a confirmation of acceptance or rejection (by Dec 12, 2019).
Don’t be bummed if your talk is rejected! We have year-round BlueHat events and may contact you with other options.
