Thank you for your interest in our 2020 Call for Papers. We are cautiously optimistic the situation in October will allow us to come together in-person to engage, learn, network, and share knowledge in a safe and healthy environment.
It’s with this optimism that we’re continuing to plan SecTor as scheduled, and that we thank you for taking a moment to submit your talk to present at this year’s conference in Toronto.
SecTor is all about the substance — The content that matters to Canadian IT Security Professionals today. Of course, we’ll have fun and celebrate having the world’s best in Toronto, but the key to SecTor’s success, and the primary objective of the Advisory Committee, is quality content and interesting presentations for attendees.
If we haven’t approached you, but you believe you have a significant discovery or new research that the security community would value, or enjoy hearing about, we invite you to create an account and submit your presentation topic for serious consideration.
SecTor attendees are a mix of security professionals and vendors, programmers, students, network administrators and IT executives. Preference will be given to speakers who can present new and innovative content to a broad audience. There will be little tolerance for commercial content within presentations. Attendees will be encouraged to quell any shameless marketing that is not immediately backed up with rationale for its inclusion.
The SecTor organizers know that the speakers are what really make the event, and so to that end, speakers typically receive:
- Roundtrip flight to the conference*
- Two nights hotel accommodation*
- Ground transportation to/from Toronto airport*
- Full conference pass and invitation to the SecTor Networking Reception and Party
- Bragging rights of being a con speaker
*Please note: Travel and accommodation is not covered for speakers living within the greater Toronto area or those delivering SECurity FUNdamentals and Tools Track sessions. If you are the original author of the tool you are presenting in your Tools Track session, travel will be provided.
