  • Skytalks IV - CFP OPEN



    TLDR:
    Who: You
    What: Skytalks IV CFP
    When: Now - CFP Closes 23:59:59 MDT (UTC-06) 31 May 2011
    Why: Because you've got the warez to share
    Where: dcskytalks@gmail.com - WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO POINT AND LAUGH
    IF WE CAN'T READ YOUR SHIT IN A TEXT EDITOR. THIS MEANS YOU,
    MICROSOFT WORD USERS.
    Updates: http://is.gd/5Y8eyM

    Back by popular demand, Skytalks returns for its fourth year of technical
    prowess, side-track talks, and semi-coherent rants by some of the legends
    of the community. Never mind that we aren't actually IN a skybox this year,
    we'll still fill it to capacity, have lines running down the hallways for
    three talks in advance, and we'll recapture that original Defcon spirit and
    party like it's 1992.

    Have you ever attended a talk and come away from it feeling like you just got
    pwned? Have you ever given a talk about something that you think nobody else
    has been paying attention to? Got something pissing you off, but you don't
    know who to tell? You will. And the crew that will bring it all to you? 303.

    For those of you who haven't been paying attention the last three years we've
    done this:

    "Skytalks are presentations (55-110 min) designed to overclock your brain
    with cutting edge information about sensitive topics that you might not
    be able to freely discuss or research from the privacy of your own home
    or workplace.

    "Remember when going to a security conference meant that you were going
    to sit around in a large room with 30 or so people watching presentations
    about subjects that contained highly sensitive information that usually
    was presented with some type of a legal disclosure? We do, and we want
    to share that experience with you."

    So, do you have a topic that
    * has to be cleared by a 3 (or 4) letter agency or department?
    * would get you sued (or fired) if it were to show up on YouTube?
    * discusses (un)ethical, dark, real world, ninja shit that can teach
    people something useful?
    * challenges the community and industry to fix "something that's broken?"
    * demonstrates just how damn weak _________ is?
    * -REMOVED FOR LEGAL REASONS-?
    * discloses C-level exec's and lawyers' home addresses, phone numbers,
    etc. for censoring the above?
    * Can't be recorded? (NO AUDIO OR VIDEO RECORDING IS ALLOWED)

    THEN SUBMIT YOUR TALK!

      Ok, gang. We've had a couple of people give interest but the talks aren't quite ready -- so we're going to go ahead and extend the CFP until midnight ending June 3rd -- that gives y'all a couple of extra days. GET THOSE TALKS IN!
