Your response to our call for reviewers was much bigger than we expected, so we’re closing it down Monday. Thanks to everyone who offered to help - we’ll be getting in touch with those who’ve been selected. We’ll keep the applications we received on file, and we’ll open this call back up before DEF CON 26.

If you’re still looking for volunteer reviewer opportunities, we encourage you to get in touch with the villages - most of them also field a large number of proposals that might be a perfect match to your expertise. 

Thanks to the DEF CON community for always responding to our requests with so much love and enthusiasm. You rule.

DEF CON 25 approaches. It more than approaches. DEF CON 25 looms. It hovers just beyond the near horizon, waiting to be awesome.

One key element of this awesome is all the superfun hackertainment we deliver in the form of Contests, Events, Villages and Parties. And the key element to pulling that together is YOU. All of that fun is 100% community-driven.

Every year we ask the DEF CON community for their best ideas for CON amusements, and we make the best ideas happen. This year, our 25th Anniversary year, we're hoping you're ready to respond and really step things up. Dig deep. Dream big. Seize this moment.

Everything you need to know to put your proposal together is on our CEV page. Go there, get amped, and submit your killer idea.

Let's get epic, people.

If you're a packet ninja on a quest for CTF immortality at DEF CON 25, you need to keep your eyes on the qualification schedule. No quals, no glory.

The next qualifying event is the online Jeopardy-style Bostonkey.party, happening this very week (Feb 25-27)! You can find info about this and all the remaining events in the schedule at legitbs.net, the online home of the upstanding citizens hosting this year's CTF.

We're expecting big things from you.

Greetz!

We're seeking specialized CFP Reviewers to join our DEF CON 25 CFP board this year. We have a fairly well rounded board, but we could use a few more to the team. Specifically, we'd like those more specialized in: Cryptography, Malware, Post-exploitation, Reverse Engineering, and Forensics. So if you can open a can of whoop ass with those skills, please apply. All you have to do is write a cover letter telling us how you've been involved in the DEF CON community, what skills you can bring to the table, and where to find your resume. Please be aware being on the review board is a hard volunteer job. To review you need to spend hours reading submissions and providing feedback. There will be hundreds of emails, so you have to be committed. The reward, however, is having a hand in making DEF CON 25 amazing and the eternal gratitude of hackers all over the world. Which is nice.

Send your entries to talks@defcon.org if you want in.

Thanks,
Nikita
