Call for Speakers

FIRST is looking for speakers that would like to present at the Technical Colloquium (TC). We are most interested in new presentations and presenters, however important updates on prior work are also welcome. We strongly encourage any individual who has not spoken at a conference before to submit a proposal.

The idea behind the TC is to encourage security teams and talented researchers to share their technical work in a friendly environment. While we give special consideration to local talent, submissions are welcome from anyone, anywhere (although travel expenses are not covered by FIRST). 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:

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

Submit Your Paper (EasyChair) | Deadline 1 March 2022 23:00 UTC

We really want new ideas so don’t feel you have to part of a security vendors marketing team to submit!

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.
