Reminder: DEF CON 24 Call for Papers and Call for Workshops close MAY 2!

A lot can happen In a week. Decisive battles can be won, changing the course of great wars. Human relationships can blossom from indifference to friendship. Carelessly refrigerated leftovers can blossom into viable microbiomes. A week is a powerful unit of time.

If you're planning to submit to the DEF CON CFP or CFW, you have just one of these powerful units left. One (1) week to get your powerful ideas into submission shape. One (1!) week to get them to us for consideration.

One (1) week, people. Use it wisely. The DEF CON community is counting on you. A week is finite, but regret lasts forever.

DEF CON in the News!

Here's a 60 Minutes piece that ran recently but was shot way back at DEF CON 23 -features some Bluetooth tomfoolery by our own Adam Laurie.
These days no one leaves home without a smartphone. But as 60 Minutes Overtime reports, you may need a "CryptoPhone" if you want to avoid hacking

That isn't an NFC chip in the credit card. That card doesn't have an NFC chip at all.

Hosted by the team behind USA Network's breakout hit 'MR. ROBOT', there's an fSociety recruitment challenge. Test your hacking/social engineering/knowledge skills to see if you have the goods to join Elliot in fsociety.

If you are a hacker type with younglings in your care, no doubt you are aware of the Rootz Asylum track for Kids at DEF CON. (If you didn't know, get familiar at r00tz.org - or ask the nearest hackishly inclined youth.)

Well, the folks at R00tz have a CFP out for DC24. It covers a wide area, as they're looking for people to run workstations, make presentations and set up contests. If the rising generation of padawan are to grow into mighty and honorable cyber-jedi, it's up to all of us.

Bonus coolness: Submissions from kids are welcomed and encouraged!

We're in the double digits, folks - less than 100 days until DEF CON 24! In that spirit, a little update on the venue:

We've made some adjustments to the floor plan, and you can peruse them at your leisure on the Venue page of the DC site.

https://www.defcon.org/html/defcon-24/dc-24-venue.html

We'd also like to remind you that the rooms in our discounted blocks are selling pretty fast, so if you're looking to book in one of our associated hotels sooner is better than later. The numbers and links you can use to get yourself situated are also available on the Venue page.

The time to get psyched is at hand. Let's DO this!

Friendly DEF CON reminder: DEF CON Call for Papers AND Workshops close May 2!

Putting things off until the last moment is a valid time management strategy. Until it isn’t.

If you’ve been meaning to get in gear and get your idea for a DEF CON presentation or a DEF CON Workshop polished up and sent in, it’s time to mean it harder. There are a just a few weeks to get all the boxes filled and the details worked out. We want to see what you’ve got cooking, but to get it into DC24 you’ve got to press ‘Send’ by May 2. 

The information you need to assemble is outlined on the website at https://defcon.org/html/defcon-24/dc-24-cfp.html
 and https://defcon.org/html/defcon-24/dc-24-cfw.html

Let’s DO this thing.
