DIFFERENT – ShmooCon 2020 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 2020 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 2020 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 the Lockpick Village, ShmooCon Labs, Hack Fortress, and more.
SHMOOCON SUPPORTS THE FREE AND OPEN EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION. We are proud to have attendees with unique and diverse viewpoints on just about any topic. We want to foster the exchange of ideas among attendees and think the community benefits from inclusiveness. To that end, we are committed to providing a friendly, lively, and welcoming environment for all.
For your part, please be awesome to one another.
What is awesome? In the most simplest terms it means tolerance and respect. Be helpful, be kind, be responsible. It makes the experience better for everyone. Marginalization, intimidation, and harassment are examples of what is not awesome and will be addressed accordingly.
If someone is not being awesome to you or you see someone not being awesome, please tell a staff member or contact us at email@example.com (active and monitored 24/7 for the duration of the conference). If you, yourself, are not being awesome, be aware that the consequences are yours to bear. This may include being asked to leave the conference without refund and/or dealing with the proper authorities should it be warranted.
We value our attendees, speakers, and all our volunteers – they (you!) are why we come together every year and we hope you will work with us to keep ShmooCon amazing.
