Presentations If you have been involved in a research or educational project, internship, co-op, service-learning project, or other interesting experience related to cybersecurity, this is an opportunity to share that experience with others and perhaps inspire them to pursue similar opportunities.
Workshops If you are interested to offer free workshop (technical/professional) on any topic related to cybersecurity/career in general, then consider submitting a proposal for workshop sessions. The audience would be either students/educators/professionals/researchers.
Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) Sessions If you would be interested in leading an informal discussion session on just about any topic related to cybersecurity, then consider offering a BOF session. These sessions can be a great way to share ideas and be introduced to current issues or trends in this area.
Lightning Talks These 5 minute talks are a fun way to relate an interesting experience or project in cybersecurity with a less technical approach than a full presentation. If you have something you can share, consider a lightning talk.
