Technical and Infosec Professional talk submissions will be accepted.
Talks are 45 minutes long. Workshops are either 60 or 120 minutes in length.

specialists from industry rock stars and CxOs to burned out techies.
In particular, we are looking for original talks of the highest quality
in the following areas:
1. Offensive and Defensive Technologies and Techniques
2. Bugs - Finding, Fixing and Reverse Engineering
3. Incident Handling, Detection, Forensics and Anti-Forensics
4. Cloud Computing and Virtualisation Security

9. Networking and Comms
10. UK and European Critical National Infrastructure (CNI)
11. Threats, Risk, Controls, Governance, Compliance
12. Humans, Social Engineering and Layer 8
New talks tend to score higher than repeat talks in the CFP review stage
but this is not a hard and fast rule. If you plan to repeat a talk less
than 6 months after 44CON, we need to know when and where so we can plan
Note: this is not an exhaustive list. If you have a good talk proposal
covering something not mentioned above, please let us know.
