2024 Call for Trainings
Now Accepting Submissions!

About the Call for Trainings

The 36th annual FIRST conference will take place at the Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk in Fukuoka, Japan over the dates of June 9-14, 2024. Training courses will be held on Sunday, June 8 before the main conference activities commence. These training courses are exclusive from the main conference program agenda.

Our goal is to provide training opportunities for the participants attending the FIRST annual conference and those locally based, who may not be attending the annual conference and could benefit from these courses.

Training opportunities will be open to anyone who is new to the incident response community as well as our valued existing community.

What We Are Looking For?

We are looking for practical, full-day and half-day incident response and security-related trainings that focus on further developing the knowledge and skillsets of its participants.

We do not allow trainings with the aim of gaining the audience’s interest in any commercial application, solution, or product. In other words, NO SALES OR MARKETING pitches.

Trainings should be presented in English.

Submissions must be received by the end of the day on November 30, 2023 (UTC 19:00) via the online submission form.
