Hotel room update

posted Mar 8, 2018, 6:18 PM by Jeff Brocious

Almost immediately after we posted the link to the hotel room block, the block filled.  The hotel will not be able to add any more rooms to the block because the entire hotel is almost filled for the weekend.  We are actively checking with other hotels in the area to see if we can get any discounted rooms.  Please be patient.

Student tickets are all gone!

posted Mar 6, 2018, 5:37 PM by Jeff Brocious

All of the student tickets have already been claimed!
Thank you to all who submitted requests this year.

Weekend hotel room block

posted Mar 3, 2018, 11:53 AM by Jeff Brocious

We have added the room block link on our Venue page.  It will be available until April 6, 2018 or when the hotel fills.

If you receive a message on the site saying there are no more rooms, the hotel gets notified and they will be adding chunks of rooms at a time.  Please be patient, it may take a day or so for the new rooms to appear.

If you selected or intend to select the electronic shield option for your 2018 ticket, this is the Parallax badge you must have to attach the shield to: The electronic shield is NOT a badge on it's own.

CFP notifications

posted Feb 9, 2018, 11:28 AM by Jeff Brocious

We want to thank everyone who submitted talk and training ideas to the BSidesCharm 2018 CFP.  This was by far the largest response we have received.  

All notifications for our CFP have been sent out to the primary contact on the CFP form.  If you submitted a talk or training to our CFP and have not received notification, contact speakers at bsidescharm dot com.

There were over 80 submissions, but with only 20-22 talk slots, we had to make a lot of tough decisions.  The vast majority of the submissions were really, really good.  We just couldn't accept all of them.  Please don't take a rejection as a negative.  We will provide as much feedback to those who request it as we can.  Please be sure to submit those talks and trainings to other BSides too.  There are quite a few right now with open CFPs.  And definitely submit to BSidesCharm again next year.  Who knows, we may have room for more talks.
