Bringing together the world's most renowned security professionals from academics, government, industry, and the underground hacking community.
We are neutral and we stick to our principles: If a topic is interesting and important we will consider a submission for our conferences. We will not lock out individuals or organizations from submitting a talk or attending our conferences and we hope, that potential visitors share our stance and posture.
Novelty, Quality & Impact
When selecting talks or workshops from our submissions we strictly make no discrimination or preference based on anything else than the quality, novelty, impact or relevance of that specific submission. Often we prefer to invite a newcomer to the stage if the content is more promising than the “safe choice” of well established truths, which are repeated all over the place. We even observe sometimes that superstars of the security circus lack brilliance, novelty and something that we really love: Controversy, a little bit of provocation and alternatives to the mainstream.
