  • Actual Schedule

    Hello, I know the dates of DefCon but do we have a specific schedule yet? That way either I plan to arrive on the 4th or the 5th (AM or PM). Thanks

    It's not public yet, but Thursday is a slow start day for us, with a pool party, DJs, the ToxicBBQ is happening, and some social parties. The content program starts Friday.

      Hey all! I have the same question. I have been looking nearly dairly at the con calendar to see if any of the events will have times listed on them but the majority of them are just listed as multi-day activities. I'm new to defcon so wasn't sure when to expect that the schedule would be complete? Trying to plan ahead so I can make the most of my time this year :)

        OK, I'll try and get things updated. We are in crunch mode to get the printed program in today, then we can catch up.

            Hey all. Just wanted to check to see if there was any ETA on when the schedule will be up? I'm only seeing scattered schedules (like for certain villages) but the main con schedule seems to still be filled with mostly all day events, no specifics on where things will be or what time. Apologies if I'm missing something, but this is my first year at defcon and I want to plan it out so I can enjoy it to the fullest :). Thanks!

              If you are asking about a PDF? I do not have the ETA for when that can be downloaded.
              When it is available for download, in addition to being linked from the main site, it will probably be listed somewhere under here:
              https://media.defcon.org/DEF%20CON%2029/

              For online, the "official" online main site schedule is here: https://defcon.org/html/defcon-29/dc-29-schedule.html

              There is also a downloadable ical format schedule from the main site for DEF CON 29: https://defcon.org/html/defcon-29/def-con-29.ics

              For the assembled schedule provided by InfoBooth goons who are working to get schedule information from villages, contests and more, check out: https://info.defcon.org/
              (You may see content identical to this at in-person InfoBooth, as they often consume their own content when helping answer questions.)
              (This grows as InfoBooth goons get more information about schedules from various parts of DEF CON, and can be updated unlike the PDF or printed forms.)

              There is also the "Hacker Tracker" app which I think is also updated and maintained by one or more InfoBooth Goons.

              There was also another copy of a schedule annually assembled and converted by qumqats in the past, with downloadable copies of text documents or markup documents which allowed for text without execution programs. (Here is an example from LAST YEAR, DEF CON 27: (not for this year) https://forum.defcon.org/node/229436 ) : I don't know if they have plans to provide one for this year.

              The InfoBooth Goons try really hard to always get the most up-to-date schedules for contests, events, villages, etc. and many people leading well-run things do a great job of informing infobooth goons when their schedules change, but sometimes there are communication failures. If there is a contest, event, village, etc. which has content you really must see, find out where their schedule is posted and how they post updates or announcements and follow that in addition to getting schedule information from other sources. Twitter is a common method for organized of things to use to broadcast last-minute changes, but it is not the only one.

              Hope this helps.

              6: "Who is Number1?"
              2: "You are number6"
              6: "I am not a number!..."

                Yes, the URL in the above forum post, http://defcon.outel.org, is active for DC29 and is mainly populated with data from InfoBooth ( thanks guys! ), so events added/updated there will appear both places, The available file formats are HTML, CSV, PDF, ical, and a public google calendar. This be under development with updates and improvements thru the end of DC29.

                Good luck and enjoy DC29!

                  This is SUPER helpful. I was going to the con calendar located here https://forum.defcon.org/calendar and it was not showing the actual times, locations, etc. for most events (a small handful have just started showing times that aren't midnight and going all day.

                  Thanks os much for helping a defcon noob figure out where to go.
