Amsterdam 2020 FIRST Technical Colloquium

Amsterdam (NL), April 6th-8th, 2020

Due to the current uncertainty about the evolution of the Corona pandemic and its impact on organizational travel policies, we have decided to postpone the 2020 FIRST TC in Amsterdam to the following year. We will do a new CFP next year but give priority consideration to people that did not get a chance to talk at this year's event. The cancellation of the event was a tough decision, and we know it will impact existing travel plans.

We want to prioritize the health and safety of all participants. Please send any questions to

We are most interested in new presentations and presenters. We can also mentor or help new presenters review their materials in preparation for submission. Any novel ideas, techniques, case studies, or research related to incident and threat response are welcome. Some suggested topics are as follows:

All talks must be 45 mins (with Q&A)

For your submission to be considered, you must provide ALL of the following information:

TC Workshops:

We are still looking for good half-day to full-day workshops or training sessions. These would need to be able to handle at least 50 people. Message if interested.

TC Sponsors:

We are still looking for one additional sponsor - please message if interested.  


We would like to have a semi-official blogger for the event. We would like the individual to listen and blog about the presentations. Please send your @twitter and a little about you if interested to

Important Notes:

FIRST does not allow presentations with the aim of gaining the audience's interest in any commercial application, solution or product. In other words:


Please only submit a talk if you are actually able to attend the TC in Amsterdam.

This is a free conference and we cannot sponsor travel or other honorarium support.

Our goal is to have the program on the event website by the end of February 2020, to that end please have all submissions completed by February 15th.

The Call for Speakers for this event is now closed.
