Call For Papers

Thank you for your interest in BSidesCharm. Our 2018 event is going to be our biggest ever, and will prove to be one of the largest and more memorable BSides event world-wide. We invite you to join us and we look forward to reviewing your submission!

As we noted on our web site, we outgrew the limitations of the Baltimore Convention Center. To meet the size of our ever expanding audience, we've moved to the Sheraton in Towson, MD. 

BSidesCharm will be held on the weekend of 28-29 April, 2018.

The CFP/CFT closes Jan 28, 2018 at 11:59PM - No exceptions.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent out on or around 9 Feb, 2018.


To submit your paper, please download the document file below. Provide the necessary information and submit to the CFP link below.  The new submission system allows you to quickly submit just your Title and Abstract upfront. Between then, and the close of the CFP, you can then fill out the rest of the details in the submission document and submit it.
