GSX 2020 Call for Presentations

GSX 2020 Call for Presentations has CLOSED

The GSX 2021 Call for Presentations will open in November/December 2020!

Today’s security leaders need to be prepared for anything—from terrorism to a cyberattack to an insider threat. They must understand the language of leadership, be able to gather and act on diverse and robust intelligence and navigate the increasingly tumultuous global risk landscape. The threats are many, but with education, information sharing, partnerships, and peer networks, security professionals can rise to the challenge.

ASIS International is here to help. ASIS seeks to provide the highest quality, cutting edge, relevant learning experiences over three days at GSX—Global Security Exchange, the most comprehensive security event in the world.

Taking place 21-23 September 2020 in Atlanta, GA, Global Security Exchange will offer best-in-class solutions to equip security professionals to anticipate, mitigate, manage, and prevent today’s complex threats from an integrated enterprise perspective. We can’t accomplish this without your expertise and insights.

Calling all subject matter experts: This is your opportunity to share your experience and expertise with our global audience of security management practitioners looking for the latest information, cutting-edge strategies, and best practices that will help them succeed in their jobs and demonstrate ROI to their organizations. This audience is comprised of international security professionals from vertical industries across both the public and private sectors, as well as military and law enforcement professionals and others responsible for security.

GSX 2020 is known for its high-quality and comprehensive education program. Session abstracts must offer strong and relevant content and actionable takeaways to ensure that the targeted audience(s) benefit. All professional security-related topics are welcome—intermediate to advanced-level sessions are highly desirable, and case studies are strongly encouraged.

Format matters—think beyond the traditional lecture format to deliver a learning experience that will have a lasting impact.

Back and better than ever:

  • X Learning is a series of experiential sessions designed to actively shape the future of the security professional, offering cutting edge solutions, innovative technology, and an evolving perspective required to navigate tomorrow’s security landscape.
  • X Learning Stages are designed to offer the security practitioner something unique. Located right on the show floor, these stages feature relevant and timely topics and encourage dialogue among attendees.

If you possess knowledge that will challenge and inspire the ASIS audience, we encourage you to submit your proposal(s) today!

Commercially focused/vendor promotional proposals will not be considered

If you have any questions, contact Becky Mangan, Learning Program Manager.

A new format for a new year! The presentation proposal submission format has changed a bit from past years. In addition to using a new system, you will notice a change in the information you will be asked to submit including background information, topic/track(s), and a number of speakers. These additional requirements have been made in an effort to ensure the highest quality content. Please pay special attention as you complete your proposal, as the process may take a little longer this year.

Use the Call for Presentations Template to build your proposal before you enter it into the system.
