SEC-T 2016 Sum-up

We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who helped make 0x09:SEC-T 2016 such a successful event. Our great speakers, organizers, sponsors and of course the audience. We managed to squeeze a lot more than usual into the venue and we everyone performed meticulously under these circumstances.

We are currently finishing up the last of the economy and going through the invaluable feedback we got. And since we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary next year we will be making announcements early on.

This years best speaker by popular vote is awarded to Ulf Frisk for his talk on direct memory attacks on kernels. Quite impressive to see someone do three live demos on a 30 minute talk slot flawlessly. Certainly worth an extra 1000€ for the effort.

As you might know already, we had some technical mishaps on the video front, you who managed to watch the stream live, consider yourself lucky. The stream we thought would be safely stored in the YouTube cloud seems to be helplessly lost because it exceeded the maximum safe length. Something we should have seen if we had read through the entire forum archives before we started. Next year we will make a local backup of the stream to prevent this problem.

Save the date for next years 0x0Anniversary SEC-T 2017, which will take place on September 14-15, include a return of the Community Night on the 13:th and feature two 2-day workshop days for some in-depth training on the 12-13:th. To be announced ASAP.

We have decided to stay at the venue Nalen next year, try to expand the number of tickets a little based on the numbers from this year, but it will be a full house so get your tickets early.

There are also some early plans to extend our 0x0Anniversary event across the internet more next year, so if you or anyone you know is running a hack-space anywhere in the world and would like to know more please contact us. More information on this will come.

 

Post conference news

Thank you for making SEC-T 2016 another wonderful experience and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we do.

We are currently sorting up the aftermaths and making preparations for next years event. More information on this will follow shortly. But as always the weeks after SEC-T are quite intense as us Organizers have to catch up with our regular work again, but please be patient.

Our videos this year seem to have run into a minor problem. We are not sure yet how big the problem is, just that we are unable to reach the videos stored by YouTube at this time. If anyone has a good contact within YouTube that you think might be able to help us with this issue please contact us at [email protected].

Almost time now…

Just a few more days to 0x09:SEC-T 2016 and we are in the pipe! 5×5!

Tickets are sold out and there will be no tickets available at the door. However, if we find tickets stuck in the machine somewhere we’ll release them all on Wednesday morning 08:00 CET så check back then.

The venue for those who missed it is again anrika Nalen. Very central and very easy to get to. See map below.

We really hope to see you already at the Community Night for some nice talks, some mingle and a few beers.  All the speakers and organizers will be present, even if we will be busy arranging and preparing for the conference. Community night is a free event open to everyone with an interest in information security, hacking etc. For more information see the schedule.

On Thursday morning we would like you to try to be on time for registration, there will be no pre-registration this year so everyone has to line up and be scanned, so please do not forget your tickets or you might have to wait for manual processing.

The venue is going to be a bit more packed than usual, but if the last few years have been any indication we are sure you will be able to handle the sharp turns and tight ship we’re known for running.

There will be coffee and sandwiches in the mornings, coffee throughout the day, fruits and lunch as well as a dinner for those who wish to stay for the Club SEC-T event.

The Club SEC-T will be open for the public from 19.00 and we hope you’ll at least stay for the quiz, but you really shouldn’t miss the live acts, the Vive VR rig, the Quake LAN or just the awesome atmosphere.

Most of the talks at 0x09:SEC-T 2016 as well as the live acts during Club SEC-T will be live streamed over our YouTube channel if you don’t have the possibility to attend. (As always this probably won’t be visible from Germany for some reason, sorry.) While the Community Night will not be live streamed, we will be testing the equipment at the same time so who knows what will happen…

We are, as always very excited to make this event happen and looking forward to seeing all of you again!

“Welcome to the SEC-T!”

Sincerely,

The SEC-T Organizers

The Community Night Event

Since the SEC-T conference is a paid event we understand that there are many potential attendees that cannot afford to come even with our low student prices. For this purpose we have since 2016 started hosting a community evening event where everyone is welcome to attend and/or present.

The Community night event will start at 18.00 on Wednesday the 7:th of September. So make sure you are there then. There will be original talks, beer, friends and the customary chaos that ensues when an event type is tried for the first time.

The community night is geared towards students and people not directly working in the field that want to expand their knowledge and meet like minded individuals for an informative and interesting evening.

For 2016 there is a set list of speakers but anyone who would like to give a talk should contact the SEC-T organizers at [email protected].

Should any of the accepted speakers at the SEC-T conference want to give a community night talk they are always welcome to do so.

The community night talks will not be recorded or live streamed.

Community night

As you can see SEC-T this September is three days. For the evening of Wednesday September 7:th we have decided to do a free event called the community night.

If you are a student and wish to make people interested in a project or an idea you have been working on, this is the event for you. Invite your friends and come do a professional presentation for them.

If you submitted a talk to the conference and you weren’t accepted, come and present you talk anyway.

If you are an accepted speaker and would like to share a talk on another subject please feel free to do so.

The same rules apply for community night talks, no commercial presentations, sales pitches or corporate bull.

The easiest way to submit something is still through our regular submission system, simply mark your talk as Community Night talk only.

CFP is still open

The Call For Papers is still open and we have submissions coming in. Until June 1:st you can modify your registered submission or withdraw it yourself. After June 1:st you would have to email us to make any changes, but we still accept submissions until the deadline of August 1:st.

All accepted talks are awarded an honorarium of 1000€ upon the presentation of the talks. For more information see our policy statements.
