Ah, lightning talks...the speed dating (!) of Hacker cons.

Lightning Talks are 5-minute talks by various people combined in a set of 10 talks in one hour. You can present a strange idea, your nifty program, a cool project, some hardware you like - or whatever. Talks are meant to be non-commercial in nature. Sales or vendor pitches will not be allowed.

No, you don't have to drop a 0day or blueprints for a time-space warp engine to take part (we won't stop you if you try though...).

Perhaps you've found a novel use for an existing tool, or you've automated something that usually takes forever...or maybe you've started up a security related project and you're looking for volunteers...or you discovered an attack, defense or response technique you hadn't seen anywhere else (or you saw it but feel others would benefit from hearing about it).

You don't have to be one of the 'gurus' or infosec rockstars to throw your hat in the ring. You don't even have to present your "own stuff" - you may just want to get the word out to other haxxors about something you think is really special.

If you're nervous about presenting, we'll even offer some free coaching if you want it. Brucon is most definitely a con without attitude.

Don't let the biggest thing stopping you giving a lightning talk be "you" :).

Sign-up to give a lightning talk. Just edit the entries below.

Note: To avoid unnecessary questions, you will get nothing in return for giving a lightning talk. Except 5 minutes on the spotlight, interesting feedback and maybe a beer from someone in the audience. :-)
