Workshops changes and latest schedule updates

Some last minute changes.... Unfortunately, the Office Cryptanalysis workshop got canceled. But we did our utmost best to find you a replacement and actually got you two!!!
Thank you Justing Searle, David Durvaux and Christian Van Heurck for helping us out!!! Don't forget to register for their workshops!!

The LSEC workshop also moved from Friday to Saturday.

So check our online schedule for the last version and information!!!

Fridaynight = open Fracknight @ BruCON

After the presentation track on Friday, there will still be some activities like in the hardware hacking area. BruCON has decided to open its doors Friday after 20:00 till midnight that evening so people can still participate with or without a ticket. BUT we cannot exceed the venue capacity due to safety reasons so we cannot allow entrance above 400 people. Of course ticket holders have priority but feel free to drop by and see if we can allow more people inside.

In worst case, you can join the beerworkshop which will be given outside (limited capacity) or join the people soon after at one of the after-parties which people have planned that evening.

Come to the Surfhouse and have a beer with us.

To prevent chaos for our workshops, we will start a registration list. Starting at 12:00 on Tuesday 14/09, you can register on the workshop page. Details are mentioned there.

Most workshops will be given on both days so you have 2 options. Arrive early (5 minutes for start). Even if you don't have a spot, drop by to see if anybody didn't show up.

If a lot of people miss out on a workshop, we will try to work something out for next year. So let's keep it fun and orderly for everyone.
