  • RFC: All contests/event/parties previously okayed: Will you be at DC20?

    Hello contests/event/party/social-gathering leaders or organizers with previously okayed contests, events parties,or social gatherings. Do you plan to bring back your contest, event party or social gathering to Defcon 20?

    This is not a question to guarantee you space or resources at Defcon 20 for your "thing" and this is NOT permission for you to run you "thing" at Defcon 20. This is so that when the Defcon 20 forums get rolled out LONG before there are "Request For Info" from Pyr0, Nikita, Neil, and Dark Tangent, I can create forums for "things" that people are planning to bring back to Defcon 20.

    Just like for Defcon 19 and Defcon 18, we can make the forums, but you are still responsible for submitting your request to bring your "thing" back to Defcon 20 when the call for information is posted, and before the deadline.

    Re-stating this again:

    I do not authorize contests or events at Defcon. Getting a forum for Defcon 20, once they are rolled out does not guarantee you a place at Defcon 20.

    Next, this offer is ONLY for returning events -- thing authorized for previous Defcons,because if a request is submitted for a returning "thing" is is unlikely they will be turned down for Defcon 20. Any NEW "things" will have to wait until the "RFI" is officially published.

    This offer is provided to help people planing, leading or organizing a "thing" at Defcon to have a place to do this, and plan early, and engage members with new ideas.

    When will the Defcon 20 forums roll out? Usually this happens around October, November or December. It i variable, as the roll-out is often linked with official announcements in the form of "news" on the main site, or here on the forums By Jeff. Without such a news story or announcement, we will probably roll something out by December.

    101 is planning on coming back for 20. Bigger and better.

        DEFCON Shoot will be coming back.

        Beverage Cooling Contraption Contest will be back, but Ad-Hoc, Sax, Spam, or some others will be the primary leader/organizers

        Gringo Warrior is 99% certain to be retired, at least next year. In its place we will have "Black Bag"

        Lockpick Village will be back... bigger, better, and with more sexy people in tight black t-shirts.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                  One more thing...

                  I plan to send ONE email message to the email addresses of all the forum users that reply here with a stated intention to bring back their contest, event ,social gathering or party once Pyr0 has a published RFI for Defcon 20.

                  I'll use BCC so none of your email addresses will be exposed to each other. This email should come from, "defconforums@gmail.com" and be to, "defconforums@gmail.com"

                  This will give you a reminder to get your info in to Pyr0 early, so that you are in the program, and have the resources you need.

                  Thanks!

                    Mystery Challenge will be back next year.

                      Project 2 would like to come back in a way that doesn't clash with Mystery Challenge, oCTF, Network Forensics challenge, or Team Fortress. The aforementioned contest leads have already begun coordinating about how best to do this.

                      If we can all pull it off, DC20 contests will be badass in a whole new dimension.
