Your submission passes through the following steps during the selection process:

  • Program Committee Selection – Speakers and sessions are selected by the RSA Conference Program Committee, an independent panel of volunteer judges from the enterprise, government, academic and vendor community. 
  • Submitter and Speaker Notification – All submitters and proposed participants will be notified via email in late January 2024 on the status of their submission.

Online Steps for Submitting content for RSAC:

Step 1: Login/Create an Account
You will be asked to login to the Call for Submissions process for RSA Conference.

Step 2: Select Submission Path
You need to select which Call for Submissions path you are submitting to. The options are: Traditional Track Sessions and Learning Labs Sessions.

Step 3: Submitter Identification
Speakers must make their own submission. If you are submitting on behalf of someone else, you must also be part of the session (i.e., co-speaker or panel session). If you are making a submission on behalf of someone else and you are not part of the session, the submission will not be accepted.

Step 4: Session Information
Provide session details as requested. Detailed definitions and instructions can be found in our Tips for Submission. Pay careful attention to character count limits. Please be sure the details of your session clearly articulate what your session will be about.

Step 5: Proposed Participant Information
Add participants to your submission. Note: Participants will be notified they have been added to your session submission. Please be sure you have made them aware you are including them on your session so there are no surprises. Any session submitted without the knowledge of the participants is subject to disqualification.

Step 6: Session Information Review
Review and edit all information that you’re submitting for both the presentation and the proposed participant(s). If you need to make changes, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the appropriate edit button to make your changes.

Step 7: Session Submission Complete
You can make changes to your submission, click home to submit another session, or exit. The online submission process times out after 20 minutes. We recommend that you save your submission after each step. You can retrieve your submission and complete it at any time by logging back into the system.

The best approach is to download the offline submission form for the appropriate path you are submitting to in order to determine the information you need to provide in advance. We recommend that you first fill in the form offline and then copy and paste your responses into the online submission form to avoid any potential hiccups that could result in losing your valuable work and information.

We strongly recommend that you first review our Tips for Submission before developing your session proposal. Detail and diversity are extremely important in helping the Program Committee differentiate between the perspective and expertise of the many submissions they review.
