BSides Dundee is an exciting opportunity for Dundee’s Cyber Security community to showcase its talent to the world.


We are most interested in new presentations, or important updates on existing work. We are also interested in presentations from new faces. Individuals who have never spoken at a conference before, but who are interested, in contributing to the cyber security debate.

Some examples include (but are not limited to):

  • Social Engineering

  • Privacy / Freedom / Justice / Surveillance (legal or Illegal)
  • Mobile (tracking, injection, IMSI Catchers

Submissions with two or more speakers are welcome at BSides Dundee.



If you’ve always wanted to speak at a professional conference, but have never been given the opportunity, then the Rookie Track is for you.
The Rookie Track will be a period, during the conference, when enthusiastic novices will be given the opportunity to present their interesting cybersecurity talks.

Speeches many range from 3 mins to 10 mins in length.  All participants will also be mentored by security professionals.
The Rookie Track is therefore a fast-track method, for newcomers to the cybersecurity arena, to gain international professional exposure.
