How to handle CFP rejection(s)

In this refused episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Michael Kavka joins me to discuss how to handle call for presentation rejections.

Michael (@SiliconShecky) wrote a blog post on his site at the beginning of the year titled, It is CFP season... So what. In the article he hit on rejections and I thought it'd make for a great podcast topic. More recently, he wrote a blog post on the, Anatomy of a Rejected CFP. The article walks through his rejected CFP for DerbyCon.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is Michael's experience in submitting CFPs
  • Why a CFP is rejected
  • What are the different types of cons?
  • How to handle a CFP rejection letter
