BlueHat October 2023 Call for Papers is Now Open!

As you may have seen on social media, the next BlueHat conference will be October 11 – 12, 2023, on Microsoft’s Redmond campus in Washington state, USA.

The Call for Papers (CFP) is now open through August 18, 2023.

The BlueHat community is a unique blend of security researchers and responders from both inside and outside of Microsoft, who come together as peers to exchange ideas, experiences, and learnings in the interest of creating a safer and more secure world for all.

The two-day BlueHat conference is an opportunity to showcase thought leadership in the vulnerability and mitigation space, emerging security threats and techniques, new and novel research findings, calls-to-action for the security community, and much more.

The Call for Papers is open to all, and we encourage everyone in the security community (yes you!) to consider submitting either a 45-minute Breakout Session or a 15-minute Lightning Talk.

Here are some possible topics for submission. These are meant to be inspirations, not boundaries. We can’t wait to see what you share with the community.

  • AI, Machine Learning, & Data Science
  • Applied Cryptography
  • Cybersecurity Careers
  • Cybersecurity Policy
  • Data Forensics & Incident Response
  • Detection Techniques at Scale
  • Exploit Development
  • Human Factors
  • IoT/OT Critical Infrastructure Security
  • Physical Security
  • Quantum Security
  • Red Team/Blue Team Lessons Learned
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Virtualization and Container Security

To learn more about the BlueHat conference, Call for Papers process, and ideas for paper submissions, watch or listen to this Experts Forum conversation with Lee Holmes, Marissa Quebbeman, Raul Rojas and Roberto Rodriguez or view session recordings on demand from prior BlueHat events.

We will be announcing more details soon, including registration information, keynotes, and more.

Block your calendars, submit your paper, and get ready for BlueHat. Follow @MSFTBlueHat on Twitter for updates and announcements, and use #BlueHat to join the conversation.
