We’re Looking for Great Speakers

The deadline for submission has passed. Any submissions received will be considered as potential replacement presentations in the case of speaker cancellation. The International Common Criteria Conference Program Committee seeks proposals for conference presentations from industry professionals with experience in the technology, application, and policy of Common Criteria. We are seeking:

Front-Line Professionals

We prefer high-quality vendor-neutral presentations from integrators, consultants, procurers, deployers, administrators, government organizations, and academia.

Strong Topic Focus

Our focus is on specification, development, evaluation, certification and approval of Common Criteria in IT security products and systems.

Neutral Content

We prefer proposals from front-line implementers. Product vendors are encouraged to recruit clients and partners who are front-line implementers as presenters.

Benefits of Speaking

As a speaker, you’ll receive complimentary full 3-day conference registration, a US$1400 value. Your name, photo, professional biography and organization will be featured in conference promotion and the conference web site. Over 850,000 marketing impressions are made in this promotion campaign. One complimentary speaker registration per presentation is permitted. Additional co-speakers will receive discount registration of 20% off published fees. Speakers are responsible for their travel expenses. For any questions, please contact us at [email protected]

Submission is Easy

Only a proposal title and brief (about 75-word) description is required for submission. All submissions will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, relevance to conference focus, and speaker experience. English is the official language of the conference.

About the Submission Process

Conference Format

Our program consists three days of 30-minute presentations (including time for Q&A), and 60-minute panel discussions.

  • Advances in the Use of Common Criteria
  • Meeting Customer Requirements
  • Updates from Schemes and ITCs
