    The competition will be a real version of tower-defense. Competitors will build autonomous robots to shoot lasers at moving targets on a track.

    More info: www.defconbots.org or https://github.com/Defconbots

    The competition was previously run by Kallahar, from 2002-2008, and with his blessing it's being revived.
    Because this would be a change in management, I need to check with Kallahar to see that he selected you to take it over before I make a forum. You will still need to fill out the RFI data that Pyr0 asks for. If you have questions about what to do to get rolling, feel free to ask. If Kallahar does not respond, but Pyr0 gives you a green light, I can make a forum, too.

    Sending email to Kallahar.

      All created except for:

      * DEFCONBOTS
      * Project 2
      * OpenCTF

      DEFCONBOTS: waiting for email confirmation from Kallahar or after Pyr0's RFI and approval from Pyr0.

      Project 2: Waiting on email confirmation from previous contact on running this contest previous years: Zephyr

      OpenCTF: some research is needed to find the status of this, and which forum to duplicate from last year, or decide to just wait for Pyr0's decision.



      Sorry about the delays on these.

      Pyr0 has a tweet from a few weeks back saying that he is expecting the RFI process for Contests and Events to get approval for use of DEF CON resources like space, power, program, services would be in January. When I find out about the opening of the RFI, I'll email all of you by your forum-registered email addresses a notice of the process, he and his team will announce.

        @TCMBC DefCon DarkNet will be returning too. I've been traveling and haven't made it to the forums to announce it so. Is this sufficient?
        DEF CON Darknet announced as to return. Will try to add this tonight.

          I have nothing to link to in public, but HighWiz says he plans to bring DEF CON 101 (DC101) back to DEF CON 22.

          Reminder: make forum for this.

            I have nothing in public, but the previous forum organizer for Project 2 says the one that posted here is the new organizer for Project 2. Will be creating forum for it tonight.

              Hi. Thanks for emailing me about this, TheCotMan, you really go the extra mile.

              Project 2 is now being run by catatonicprime and slackish (and someone else whose forums name I don't know). I'll make a longer post in the Project 2 forum in case people want to know more.

                Thanks for letting everyone else know in public! It helps people know the transition is on the up-and-up.

                    Forums created for "Project 2" and "DEFCON Darknet" 2 nights ago, and forums for "OCTF" , "DC101" , and "DEFCON Robots" tonight.

                    I think I am now caught up with the forums to be created for contests, events and social gatherings mentioned above here.

                    Please let me know if you announced your plans to return above here but have no forum

                    Thanks!

                              When I get word that Pyr0 has an RFI out, I plan to send email to all email addresses associated with forum accounts where people posted their intentions to return to the forums, so they can go fill out the info needed to get resources from his department.

                              HTH,
