Besides it being the deadline to officially submit your taxes, Security B-Sides DC has officially opened its Call for Papers (CFP) for the event today April 15, 2013 and will last until June 30, 2013. You can submit you ideas at the CFP submission page to enter your information there. You are also permitted to enter more than one CFP submission if you wish to do so. If you are selected as a speaker for the event, you will receive a limited edition B-SidesDC T-shirt.
The plan is to conduct a double-blind method to evaluated the submissions consisting of two teams. The first team would examine the abstract/title with no knowledge of the author, while the second team would just evaluated the speaker’s biography with no knowledge of the topic.
