BSides Doha 2020


February 1st 2020

Doha, Qatar

Security BSides’s goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.

BSides Doha 2019 will be the first ever BSides conference to happen in Qatar, and one of the few (technical) security conferences to ever happen in the country.

The BSides Doha CFP is now open!

Interested in submitting? We’re interested in a range of talks, from the introductory 101 talks all the way to that talk on how you pwned your smart fridge, or automated your way out of your day-to-day SOC functions!

The lengths of talks range from 15 mins to 45 mins, depending on how much time is needed to cover the content. So if you’d like to present something that won’t take 45 mins you should still submit it!

To submit to the CFP please send an email out to info (at)

Points to Note:

  1. First-Time Speakers are welcome. If you’ve done some research and would like to share it with the community this is a great place to do that!
  2. Vendor-pitching is not allowed. BSides is a non-vendor based conference.
