ToorCon is one of the oldest and respected hacker conferences in the US. Now in it’s 21st year, we’ve decided to reinvent the conference to try to make it more fun for everyone. By speaking at ToorCon, you’re agreeing to forever be a part of the ToorCon family. In order to ensure that you have an amazing time, we’re putting up all of the Speakers in beach houses near the conference and putting you in charge of leading some of our Sunday Fun-Day activities. Don’t worry, we’ll have volunteers there to help make sure everything goes smoothly! If you happen to need help with covering airfare to the event or need any guest tickets, please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.

All we ask is that you bring some of your awesome cutting edge research to our event. All talks at ToorCon this year are 25-minutes in length and there is just one day focused on security (Friday - Blue) and one day focused on offense (Saturday - Red). If you need more time to present your ideas, we encourage you to submit a whitepaper to us to distribute to all of the attendees ahead of time. Also, because of the intimate nature of our event, we’ll have a Q&A area set aside for you after your talk where you can do hands-on demonstrations and go in-depth with those who are interested, or just let them get you a beer!
