  • Skytalks v.2 - cfp


    WHEN: Saturday/Sunday
    WHERE: The 303 SKYBOX

    Welcome to the 2nd installation of Skytalks Call for Papers. Defcon Syktalks are everyone's favorite underground security rant/soapbox venue.

    Have the new privacy laws (or violations of them) been pissing you off; don't like the the TCPA because it's stopping you from taking over the world with your autodialer; worried that the AI system you just created IS skynet? Then shout at 50+ people and tell them how YOUR your research is going to change their world. Maybe you're just angry that it's 2009 and you still don't have that flying car you were promised. No matter if it's a rant or if you just want to present your work in a private (no video / no audio recordings) environment send Pyr0 an email and get on the list.

    A message from Pyr0:
    SUMBIT you MAGGOT! - You Know You Want To.
    Speaking slots are limited so DO IT NOW!

    Thanks to Grifter, Jeff, Nikita, and the rest of the DC platoon, we have 2 days to educate, formulate, mold and shape the young (and old) minds of tomorrow so that we can have that bright and shiny future we were promised so long ago. This is your chance to pull yourself out of the muck and rise up above the crowd to lead, teach, shock and awe your fellow soldiers with the knowledge they will need to win this war against the mundane, corporate, boring sh!t that security vendors push down every throat they can find. STOP regurgitating that weak BULL-Sh!t and sound off like ya got a pair.

    Find a topic that your passionate about and tell the world why they should be too.
    Now who among you will stand and be counted? Line up!
