Call for Papers

2023 CFP: We Need You!

The time has come for the call for papers! Do you have something you’re dying to talk about? Submit a CFP!

FiestaCon cannot take place without the blood, sweat, and tears of brave presenters, such as yourself. We understand the time, effort, and stress that goes into creating a presentation for a bunch of grumpy keyboard gremlins. So, from the FiestaCon team, we would like to extend our gratitude to all of the past and future (that’s you!) presenters, as your invaluable contributions are what create the heart and soul of FiestaCon. Thank You! (This only applies if you submit a CFP 😉 )

If you are interested in giving a talk at the inaugural FiestaCon 2023 in San Antonio, Texas, please fill out the form below. Alternatively, you may send an email to [email protected] with the required information (as seen below in the form).

FiestaCon Privacy and Confidentiality

As Red Teamers, we understand and appreciate the importance of OpSec when conducting an operation. In the spirit of being “good” Red Teamers, we extend that consideration to the talks and information shared at FiestaCon. What does this mean? What happens at FiestaCon, stays at FiestaCon. The first rule of FiestaCon? Don’t talk about FiestaCon. Jokes aside, at FiestaCon we value the privacy of any and all individuals who choose to present; as such, talks will not be recorded and all talks will happen LIVE in San Antonio, TX, no video-calls. You can rest assured that your talk will not end up on the front page of Bleeping Computer because of us. So please, submit your CFP today!

Important Considerations for Speakers

When submitting your talk, plan for a 50 minute presentation (that is including Q/A, we will plan to give people a short break between talks).

No “What is Red Teaming?” talks will be accepted. FiestaCon is only attended by experienced red teamers, know your audience!  Only talks that add value to the red team community will be considered.
