I think @er4z0r is 100% right with that quote :-)
Let me first take this opportunity to thank you, our audience, to make BruCON 0x04 what it turned out to be : AWESOME!
Of course we do our best to bring the finest of infosec to Belgium to share knowledge and spur discussion. Our volunteers go on a minimum sleep diet months before the conference and give everything they have to make your conference enjoyable. In the end it is you, our attendees, that come out in large numbers with open minds, ready to discuss a variety of topics and share your expertise. This is what gives BruCON the unique atmosphere of being among friends (if not family) for two days straight. We can't be more thankful for that. It's also our honor to dedicate € 25.000 to the ideas and projects that will solve tomorrows infosec challenges through our 5by5 initiative. BruCON is a conference by the community for the community. We will announce details about 5by5 by the middle of next week!
Yes, we too were scared of the impact of moving the conference to Ghent. It turned out that the awesome vibe of the city fitted our conference well and I don't think it is a surprise that we decided to stay put for the foreseeable future.
As we are now looking forward to the 0x05 edition, we realize that this will be a special anniversary edition. It shouldn't be a surprise that we are already planning today :-)
The details for our 2013 edition are :
Location : Ghent
Training dates : September 24th and 25th
Conference dates : September 26th and 27th
Yes, there will be some surprises to be announced in the coming weeks and months so stay tuned and get ready to turn it up a notch for BruCON 0x05 : the anniversary edition !
