Shakacon 2013, an Information Technology (IT) Security Conference, is back and ready to invite business executives, government and military officials, security professionals, and IT enthusiasts to participant in Hawaii’s only Call for Paper based IT security conference.

We decided it was time to bring some top notch technical talent back to one of the most remote locations on earth.

Sitting around somewhere freezing your a$$ off? Dreaming about warm days, rainbows, decadent tropical drinks sipped out of coconuts? Sure you could drop your 0day in Vegas, bring down the Internet in Germany, or satisfy your dark desires in Asia; however, wouldn’t you rather submit your research or topics to our CFP and maybe win yourself a paid trip to Hawaii?

June 25-26, 2013 Training 8am-5pm

June 27-28, 2013 Conference 8am-6pm

5 years strong – Shakacon 2013 is a laid back security conference held in paradise.
What more could you ask for?

Sun, Surf, and C Shells – among other things

World class speakers, trainers, and people combined into a great venue intended to foster education and networking.

It’s all fun and games until the conference pictures end up on the Internet

Where else can you see some of the top security professionals in the world dance the Hula?

Overview

Want to learn the Hula while increasing your security skills? Want to attend a conference where you can grab a drink with some of the top security minds in the industry? Want to surf the beautiful waters of the pacific in the morning and then drop some 0day in the afternoon? Sitting around somewhere freezing your a$$ off? Dreaming about warm days, rainbows, decadent tropical drinks sipped out of coconuts? Sure you could drop your 0day in Vegas, bring down the Internet in Germany, or satisfy your dark desires in Asia; however, wouldn’t you rather submit your research or topics to our CFP and maybe win yourself a paid trip to Hawaii? If the answer to any of the above is yes then we are your conference.

The Shakacon security conference is a laid back conference where industry, government, academia and independent experts will get together to share knowledge and experience in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Shakacon 2013 will offer local, national, and international participants a casual, social, learning environment designed to present a “holistic” security view and the opportunity to network with peers and fellow enthusiasts in a relaxed setting. Leave your ego at the airport (or shoreline if you come in via another method) as we look forward to attendees varying in skill level from N00b to Ninja.

During the day, sessions will include: best practices, case studies, research projects, etc. covering all different aspects of the information security landscape. There will be something for everyone and if sitting through talks isn’t your cup of kava, there will be exciting events and contests for you to sharpen your skills and knowledge on.

You will not want to miss the closing ceremonies where we pour enough alcohol that we convince some introverted security geniuses to get up on stage and dance the Hula.
