0xcon is an infosec conference aimed towards building the Gauteng and ZA community. Lots of you do great research and this is an open platform for you to share yours, as well as to see what others have been working on.
Due to the uncertainty around the lockdown, we're planning to do this remotely in 2020. That means we can have many more people watch our talks, and hopefully get some speakers from abroad too. Help us spread the word!
If you've done some interesting research, learned something you think others should know, or developed a useful tool or technique, submit it! If you're still busy researching but know for sure that you can finish it soon then submit it anyway! There's plenty of time between now and September to get it done.
Also, feel free to submit something. If you've never spoken at a con, or if you've spoken at so many you've lost count then all we ask is that you come with something interesting and relevant to say.
After you mail us we'll review your submission and get back to you as soon as humanly possible. The closing date for entries is 30 September, 2020. Any submissions after that date will not be considered and the review panel's decision on the talks to be selected will be final. Unfortunately there are limited spots available so if your talk isn't selected, please try again for the next 0xcon.
0xcon's primary goal is to build the infosec community in Gauteng and South Africa. South Africa is naturally culturally diverse, and we're committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or religion.
In pursuit of this goal, we've laid out the following rules for speakers and attendees.
