With over 300 attendees, BSidesPDX 2015 was a huge success, and we're excited to keep the momentum going for 2016!
BSidesPDX 2016 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, October 14th and 15th at the Oregon Convention Center.
We're looking forward to changing things up a bit and keeping BSidesPDX current, relevant, and interactive for all attendees. Ever get bored with 1 hour talks? Ever get tired of listening to odd stories during Q&A? We're going to try out a new format with sets of 20 minute talks on related topics, followed by roundtable discussions with multiple speakers and audience input. Check out the CFP, now open!
CFP Round 1 ends August 22nd
CFP Round 2 ends September 19th
Final accept/reject announcements by September 30
BSides PDX is a gathering of the most interesting infosec minds in Portland and the Pacific Northwest! Our passion about all things security has driven attendance from other parts of the country. Our goal is to provide an open environment for the InfoSec community to engage in conversations, learn from each other and promote knowledge sharing and collaboration. The Portland and greater Northwest information security community spans a broad spectrum of participation from CISOs, Fortune 100 company security experts, small business system admins, to independent security researchers.
