Details

In true Security B-Sides (BSides) form, BSides Wellington is a community security conference. And what better way to pay tribute to that community than putting consultants, hackers, hobbyists, academics, students, and public sector type folks in conference hall to share knowledge.

This is BSides Wellington inaugural year; the tickets will be cheap, the time of year/week is familiar, come submit a talk or workshop and make the line up look un-BEE-lievable.*

*C’mon, you can’t avoid bee puns when your city icon is the Beehive and your conference is BSides.

Location & Logistics

BSides Wellington will be held at Shed 6 on Queens Wharf. It is in the middle of town, near the train station, and close to a whole heap of cafes, pubs, and hotels.

The Shed 6 hall will be broken into multiple talk/workshop areas. The main track will be good for those that want to present a larger audience talk, and the smaller tracks will be good for a smaller audience talk or a hands-on workshop.

Speaker Costs

BSides Wellington is a not-for-profit, community event and we are aiming for <$50 tickets for employed folks, and <$25 for students and unemployed. In order to keep those tickets low, we are not covering speaker costs (flights, accommodation, etc). Just think of all the snacks and refreshments and fun times that will be had though!

In all honesty, if you are keen to submit and you need help getting to BSides Wellington, submit anyways and let the organizers know. We will have a few diversity and other support scholarships opening up soon that you can apply for.

(Also, ignore the t-shirt size on the submission form, we can’t remove it!)
