Call for Speakers for Full Conference tracks closed Wednesday, February 19 (11:59 PM Pacific Time). There are no extensions and submissions received after that date will not be reviewed.

Submissions Process

Your submission passes through the following steps during the selection process:

Program Committee Selection – Speakers and sessions are selected by the RSA Conference Program Committee, an independent panel of volunteer judges from the enterprise, government, academic and vendor community.

Submitter and Speaker Notification – All submitters and proposed participants will be notified via email May 2020 on the status of their submission.

Online Steps for Submitting a Speaking Proposal

The best approach is to download the offline submission form to determine the information you need to provide in advance. We recommend that you first fill in the form offline, and then copy and paste your responses into the online submission form. This option is the best approach to avoid losing your valuable work and information.

Step 1: Username and Password

You will be asked to create a new username and password. Previous login information is not recognized.

Step 2: Submitter Identification

You (the submitter) need to provide your contact information.

Step 3: Session Information

Provide session details as requested. Detailed definitions and instructions can be found in our Tips for Submission. We strongly recommend you review it as there are some great tips to improve your chances.

Step 4: Speaker Information

Please make sure you’ve completed this section in full. Note: if you are the submitter and the speaker, there are additional fields to complete beyond what was in the submitter portion. Likewise, if your session is co-speakers, information for both speakers needs to be completed.

Step 5: Session Information Review

Review and edit all information which you’re submitting for both the presentation and the proposed speaker.

Step 6: Session Submission Complete

You can print your submission, submit your session proposal, submit another presentation, or exit.

The online submission process times out after 60 minutes. We recommend that you frequently save your submission. You can retrieve your submission and complete it at any time by logging back into the system.

We strongly recommend that you first review Tips for Submission and FAQs before developing your session proposal. Detail and diversity are extremely important in helping the Program Committee differentiate between the perspective and expertise of the many submissions they review.
