Enigma 2023 Instructions for Presenters

Welcome to all Enigma 2023 speakers! We're so glad that you'll be joining us in Santa Clara, CA, USA.


If you have questions, please contact conference@usenix.org or your Program Co-Chairs, Melanie Ensign and Joseph Lorenzo Hall, enigma23chairs@usenix.org.

To-Do List

  1. Sign your Consent to Publish form.
    USENIX requires a signed consent form from all presenters, which allows us to publish the audio, slides, and/or video of your talk. USENIX makes these freely available to the public as part of our commitment to open access. Please review and e-sign the Enigma 2023 Consent Form for Talk Presenters. If you wish to request an honorarium, please complete the consent form by no later than Monday, January 2, 2023. Any honorarium requests received after the deadline may not be eligible.
  2. Register for the conference.
    The USENIX Conference Department will contact you with instructions for registering online. More information about our health and safety plan is available on the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and USENIX Conferences page.
  3. Get your visa.
    If you need an invitation letter to apply for a United States visa to attend the conference, please contact the Conference Department as soon as possible. Visa applications are reportedly taking more than two months to process. Please identify yourself as a presenter or an author, and include your mailing address in your email request.
  4. Read the USENIX Code of Conduct.
    Please ensure your talk follows the guidelines outlined in the USENIX Code of Conduct.
  5. Prepare your slide deck.
    Slides should be set up for a 16:9 aspect ratio. Do not overcrowd your slides, and be sure to leave the upper-right corner blank for on-site display purposes. The Enigma logo is available for download if you want to include it in your slide deck. A slides template is also available via Google Slides. You can save the slides to your Google account or download them to your local drive as a PowerPoint file.
  6. Check your materials for copyrighted images, audio, and video.
    It is very important that you secure permission to use copyright-protected materials in your slide deck, video, or other materials used at a conference or submitted for publication. Even when an item has a Creative Commons license, you must read and comply with the terms of the license.

    USENIX receives copyright infringement notices from time to time, resulting from authors or speakers using copyright-protected materials without proper licensing or attribution. When this happens, we have to unpublish the work in question until/unless the issue is resolved. Licensing fees may be incurred, even when the work is unpublished, and USENIX will bill the author or speaker for any costs incurred. When possible, USENIX will refer the complainant directly to the author or speaker, who will be solely responsible for resolving the complaint.
  7. A/V and technical setup at the conference.
    USENIX provides a projection screen and projector, plus the following:
    • 1 wireless microphone
    • Connectivity for laptops with HDMI and USB-C ports. If your laptop uses a different video standard (e.g. Mini DisplayPort or mini-HDMI), please make sure to bring any adapters you might need to connect to the projection system.
    Laptops are not provided.
  8. Email your slides (after the conference).
    In order to make your talk available on the program web page immediately after the conference, please email a PDF of your slides to slides@usenix.org as soon as possible after your presentation.
  9. Promote Yourself and the Event on Social Media!

    Please help us promote the conference on social media with the #Enigma2023 hashtag. Our attendees come from around the world to learn from you, so here's your chance to get people excited about your session. We've posted some graphics below which you're welcome to use.
