What is BSides
Taken from the Security-BSides’s community wiki;
“Each BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.”
What is BSidesHH
BSidesHansestadtHamburg is a Security-BSides event being held in Hamburg on the 28th December 2015. This year will mark the second year this conference has been organised. CCC’s annual four-day congress event taking place in Hamburg around the same time it seems a great opportunity to host a Security-BSides event. BSidesHH2015 will start at 09:30 (opening ceremony) and should be finished by around 18:30(ish). Giving people the chance to grab the night-time talks at congress. Of course, i also imagine some people will want to hang-out and grab after conference-drinks which seems like something we can work out closer to the time.
Opening and Closing talks
Along with announcing our ‘Call for Papers’ being open, we are also announcing our opening and closing talks for the event too. Meredith Patterson will start off our BSidesHH2015 event with her talk ‘Ambiguity Is Insecurity’. Aaron Zauner with Wilfried Mayer will close our BSidesHH2015 event with their talk ‘Yep! We poked all your mail daemons. State of Transport Security in the E-Mail Ecosystem at Large’
How to book tickets
You can book tickets to the conference, via our Eventbrite page.
How to submit a talk
Although we’ve already announced some talks, our ‘Call for Papers’ is
open. Now we’re not really looking for papers, we’re looking for talks. Talks that
hackers, geeks, and nerds might find interesting. You’d be surprised how much we
all love a talk that’s just a little bit different. So don’t be shy and submit
your idea, if you’re unsure drop us an email or better yet
grab @f1nux on twitter for a chat.

Getting in contact
You’ll find us on twitter mostly, https://twitter.com/BSidesHH but you could email is at bsideshh gmail com.
How you can help
Currently we have no plans to photograph or record the event, this may change if we have someone
wanting to help us with these jobs.
Problem solved due to the epic ‘cooper’.
We have a Call for Volunteers form, if you let us know we’ll get back to you. You don’t have to be a photographer or videographer to help out though, if you think you may have a few hours to help out on the day then also drop us a line. It would be much appreciated.
If your business wants to sponsor
As with any community-led event we wouldn’t get very far without the help of sponsors. BSidesHH2015 is looking for companies that wish to join us in delivering 2015 last Security-BSides event of the year.
First Round Talks Announcements:
So we’ve been busy organising BSidesHH2015 and although our Call for Papers is still open until the 10th of December we’d like to announce 4 talks today which will be featuring at the event.
