BroCon2018 is accepting presentation proposals. We are looking for talks to represent the many applications of Bro. Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:

  • A tool for solving problems
  • Interesting user stories, solutions, or research projects
  • A postmortem analysis of a security incident, emphasizing Bro’s contribution
  • The value Bro brings to your professional work
  • Using Bro for more than intrusion detection


*Please, no product presentations*

Criteria for evaluating proposals include whether the topic is applicable to multiple types of organizations, gives people ideas to take home and use, can be understood by a broad audience, or is novel to many in the audience. Scrolling through our YouTube Channel may provide some insight into the types of presentations we wish to feature.
