DIFFERENT - ShmooCon is an annual east coast hacker convention hell-bent on offering three days of an interesting atmosphere for demonstrating technology exploitation, inventive software and hardware solutions, and open discussions of critical infosec issues. The first day is a single track of speed talks called One Track Mind. The next two days bring three tracks: Build It, Belay It and Bring It On.
AFFORDABLE - ShmooCon is about high quality without the high price. Keep in mind that space is limited, and we’ve sold out quickly every year.
ACCESSIBLE – ShmooCon 2014 is held in Washington, DC at the Washington Hilton about four blocks from the DC Metro’s Dupont Circle Station. Fly into DCA, IAD or BWI or take a train to Union Station, and you’re just a short cab ride away from the con.
ENTERTAINING – Brain melting from all the cool tech you’re learning? Be sure to check out the other events running during ShmooCon, including ShmooCon Labs, the Lockpick Village, Ghost in the Shellcode and more.

ABOUT SHMOOCON AND THE SHMOO GROUP
The Shmoo Group (TSG) is an independent think-tank of security professionals from around the world who donate their time and energy towards information security research and development. Several years ago TSG had an idea. This idea has grown into a community recognized annual security conference attended by over 1800 people.
Our goal for ShmooCon is to educate, inform, and entertain the attendees. ShmooCon is primarily a security conference, but we encourage innovative and interesting submissions on offbeat technology topics.
