Welcome to the 9th Annual IoT Security Foundation Conference; the world’s longest-running conference dedicated to IoT cybersecurity.

The Annual IoTSF Conference has built a loyal global following from the IoT stakeholder community and is renowned for delivering high-quality conference programmes.  As artificial intelligence (AI) has now firmly entered the mainstream it is poised to shake up many industries. AI has been of growing interest for cybersecurity professionals for many years both from a defensive and offensive perspective and this years conference will include an emphasis as to what AI means to developers and cyber defenders working at the leading edge. And of course, we’ll also be updating attendees on important themes which feature regularly so we can live up to our ‘best practice, next practice’ mantra.

Invitation to Sponsor or Exhibit

We’re seeking sponsors and exhibitors for the conference and have a range of options to fit all budgets. If you’d like to raise your profile and support us, please EMAIL US, and we’ll let you know what’s on offer!

Guidance for Speakers

Abstracts must clearly detail the nature, scope, content, key points and significance of the proposed presentation to aid the assessment process.

The audience has come to hear a talk about a subject that is of interest to them. Direct or overt sales presentations are unwelcome at this event and will not be accepted. It is acceptable to position where the talk is coming from – i.e. the company / individual and the area of interest you have, generally one slide at the beginning usually suffices.

Presentations are to be made in English.

Regular speaking slots are nominally 20 minutes in duration (inclusive of Q&A) however if you prefer a ‘lightening talk’ slot, these are nominally allocated as 10 minutes. Slot duration will be confirmed as part of the acceptance process.

So What?

It’s great that you have something to say however be clear about your message to the audience – your talk may be good but if the audience is left with a feeling of “so what?” then we’ve collectively failed. When making a submission make sure you spell out the key takeaways that you intend to leave with the audience and what will make it worth their while listening to you. This also helps our talk assessors when selecting talks for the conference hence we encourage you to consider this carefully.

It is standard practice to record talks at the IoTSF conference and, at our discretion, publish on our website and/or YouTube channel after the event. If you would not like your talk to be published you must inform us with written instruction (email) before or on the conference day.

If you have any queries regarding the submissions process, please contact us –
