New Research (40 mins – 1 hr) – is a deep knowledge technical track that includes new research, vulnerabilities, zero days or exploits. And by new we really mean new i.e. if your research or talk has been published/showcased (partially or wholly) before, it will fall under current research category even though there are enhancements/changes to the original research.

Current Research (40 mins – 1 hr) – Comprises of known security issues, new research presented/published elsewhere, case studies, twist to an existing research, vulnerability, exploit or research-in-progress.

Tool (30 mins – 1 hr) – Comprises of open source security tools, exploits, hardware etc. This is an excellent opportunity for the original authors to showcase their work to the world.
