This post is a bit of a vent. On Sept 30th (the deadline; talk about waiting for the last moment!) I submitted a talk to the Bsides Zurich this year. Yesterday I received an email saying, well, they were cancelling it. It seems they were planning on, instead of having a virtual or live event, publishing a book. But, since they did not have enough articles they chose to can it. It seems that I misunderstood their CFP. Bummer
My gripe: I understand they would not want to have a live event because of COVID, but why not have a virtual one in addition to the book? On well. Better luck next year.
