The official Call for Presentations (speakers) for SecurityWeek’s 2020 Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference, being held October 19 – 22, 2020 in SecurityWeek’s Virtual Conference Center, has been extended to August 31st.
As the premier ICS/SCADA cyber security conference, the event was originally scheduled to take place at the InterContinental Atlanta, but will now take place in a virtual environment due to COVID-19.
“Due to the impact of COVID-19 and transition to a fully virtual event, we have extended the deadline for submissions to allow more time for speakers to put together their ideas under the new format,” said Mike Lennon, Managing Director at SecurityWeek. “Given SecurityWeek’s global reach and scale, we expect this to be the largest security-focused gathering of its kind serving the industrial and critical infrastructure sectors.”
The 2020 Conference is expected to attract thousands of attendees from around the world, including large critical infrastructure and industrial organizations, military and state and Federal Government.
SecurityWeek has developed a fully immersive virtual conference center on a cutting- edge platform that provides attendees with the opportunity to network and interact from anywhere in the world.
As the original ICS/SCADA cyber security conference, the event is the longest-running cyber security-focused event series for the industrial control systems sector.
With an 18-year history, the conference has proven to bring value to attendees through the robust exchange of technical information, actual incidents, insights, and best practices to help protect critical infrastructures from cyber-attacks.
Produced by SecurityWeek, the conference addresses ICS/SCADA topics including protection for SCADA systems, plant control systems, engineering workstations, substation equipment, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and other field control system devices.
Through the Call for Speakers, a conference committee will accept speaker submissions for possible inclusion in the program at the 2020 ICS Cyber Security Conference.
The conference committee encourages proposals for both main track, panel discussions, and “In Focus” sessions. Most sessions will be mixed between 30 and 45 minutes in length including time for Q&A.
Submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis so early submission is highly encouraged. Submissions must include proposed presentation title, an informative session abstract, including learning objectives for attendees if relevant; and contact information and bio for the proposed speaker.
All speakers must adhere to the 100% vendor neutral / no commercial policy of the conference. If speakers cannot respect this policy, they should not submit a proposal.
To be considered, interested speakers should submit proposals by email to events(at)securityweek.com with the subject line “ICS2020 CFP” by August 31, 2020.
