Fire Talks

ShmooCon FireTalks are 15 minute presentations meant to be an alternative to the traditional 30 to 90 minute conference format. Similar to 5 minute Lightning Talks, the purpose is to challenge speakers to skip the BS and instead dive right into the core of their content in a more relaxed alternative environment. Unlike Lightning Talks, which are usually performed in rapid succession, the additional time allows the speaker to follow a more traditional introduction, body, and conclusion format.

Judges will be on hand to vote for the best talks with prizes being awarded to the top three presentations. The FireTalks will take place Friday and Saturday night between the main track presentations and any evening activities. For those interested in participating in the CFP, please review our CFP announcement and head on over to the FireTalks 2015 EasyChair Submission Form.

If you have any questions, please contact us.   

Please note that All FireTalks 
participants (speakers and attendees) must already have a ShmooCon Barcode to participate. 

To keep up to date with all the happenings follow @grecs on Twitter. will also announce talk selections, schedule updates, and more on their FireTalks page.

So ... don't miss out on a mix of up-and-coming infosec leaders as well as the seasoned rock-stars as they challenge each other in this relaxed yet alternative conference environment.
