While we understand that your submission might be a work in progress, we strongly encourage that all submissions be as thorough as possible to allow us to make the best decision.  The program committee will review your submission based on a descriptive abstract of your intended presentation. Feel free to attach a preliminary version of your presentation if available, or any other supporting materials.  Please review your proposal thoroughly as accepted abstracts and bios submitted will be published 1:1 on our site. If your presentation is accepted for inclusion in the conference program, you are free to submit a white paper describing your work, to be added to the website.                                                                                   
To ensure the best talks available are presented at AppSec Europe we are incorporating blind reading as part of our process. This means that names and job titles will be removed when the paper's abstract is being reviewed. Submissions for training will not be read blind.  All speakers will be given access to speaker mentorship, we especially encourage first time speakers to take advantage of this service.
Marketing and sales pitches will not be accepted in the talks or trainings.
