11th biennial Information Security Symposium Call for Proposals

The Information Security Symposium at UC Davis, a popular source of ideas, new information, and networking for UC and other higher education security and compliance professionals, is now accepting proposals for the 2023 conference. UC Davis has held the symposium every other summer since 2003.

The virtual event, hosted by UC Davis, will take place June 20-21. Thanks to our vendor sponsors, registration is complimentary this year.

This year’s theme is Evolve - Meeting the Increased Security Needs in an Ever-Changing World.

Sessions will focus on:

  • Security Architecture, Engineering, and Operations 
  • Governance, Risk, and Compliance 
  • Healthcare Security 
  • Research Security 
  • Security Tools and Services 
  • Security Fundamentals
  • Security Professional Development, Managing, and Leadership

Propose a session by Friday, March 31

The symposium is seeking proposals for lectures, panel discussions, and hands-on labs focused on technical and non-technical topics related to information security and compliance. Lectures usually last 45 minutes and panel discussions or labs about 95 minutes. 

To see suggested topics and instructions for submitting a proposal, visit the “Proposals” tab on the Symposium website. Submissions are due on or before March 31, 2023. This year we are allowing submissions to be updated with presenter details after initial submission so that potential presenters do not need to delay submitting their ideas.
