At its heart, the Shakacon security conference is a laid back conference where industry, government, academia and independent experts will get together to share knowledge and experience in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The conference committee strives to build a balanced schedule that appeals to all security practitioners with talks covering all different aspects of the information security landscape. There will be something for everyone and if sitting through talks isn't your cup of Hawaiian coffee you can step into one of the social areas and talk with our sponsors, staff, and attendees. [Training Opportunities] Don't want to speak at the Con but have an uncanny ability to teach and a proven track record for delivering quality courseware and want to come to Hawaii? We will be evaluating trainers for two days of training leading up to Shakacon (July 6-7). Submit a synopsis/class agenda, prior teaching experience, and maybe you'll get selected to teach in Hawaii. Revenue is split 50/50 between the trainer and conference. The conference will cover all venue related costs (A/V, Food, Drinks, etc.). The trainer is expected to cover their own travel costs (unless they are also selected as a speaker). All selected trainers will receive free admission to the conference. [CFP Details] We have up to sixteen (16) spots and typically receive 100+ submissions to speak. If you are serious about speaking please submit your abstract as soon as possible.
