Call for Papers

# The Hacktivity Crew
The Hacktivity hacking conference brings together the official and alternative representatives of information security profession with all those interested in the area, in an informal, yet educational, and most of the times highly technical.

# Call For Contributions/Speakers
This year we are offering two alternatives: you can either give a presentation as usual or you can give a hello workshop.

# Presentations
This is the business as usual. We require similar thing as in any other IT security conference CFP. We are accepting presentations from a wide spectrum of IT security topics. It is up to you to apply for a presentation which is in line with the spirit of Hacktivity. We favor presentations with demo.

Please write your slide deck in English. Your speech can be in English (favored) or Hungarian.
As a speaker, you can have either a 20­ minutes or a 40 ­minutes slot to present your topic.

# Comprehensive workshop
We all know there is a huge difference between seeing and doing. Real knowledge grows from issuing your first command. Therefore, to help visitors start off learning we organize hello workshops. Comprehensive workshops are 2 hours long courses introducing basic/intermediate IT security skills. Previous years included topics like:

- Burp Extensions
- Malicious PDF analysis
- Basic rootkit techniques
- SQL injections

A comprehensive workshop should meet the following requirements:

- participants should acquire a definite and useful piece of knowledge;
- participants bring their own equipment you should calculate with the diversity;
- a workshop will not have more than 20 attendees;
- it should fit into 60 plus 60 minutes (seeing plus doing) from preparation to take­aways.
- one workshop will be held max. 2 times during the two days

- Here are some topics that we are especially interested in:
- Vulnerabilities at unexpected territories
- Exploit mitigations and their mitigations
- Malware analysis inside or outside the sandbox
- Blue Team techniques / operation
- Big Data / Cloud / APT / any_fancy_buzzword ­ What’s the big deal? Are there any / What are the new threats?
- Extraordinary stories of #FAIL
- Any research which brings something brand new to the security world

These are just examples though, please feel free to submit your talk as long as it fits to the spirit of Hacktivity.

# Great travel option
If you have ever considered to visit Hungary, this might be a good opportunity for you for seeing Budapest, meeting the Hungarian IT security community and experience Hungarian hospitality and cuisine as well.

The capital of Hungary is situated along the Danube, in the heart of the Carpathian basin. Hilly Buda, which comprises one-third of the city’s area is located along the right bank of the Danube surrounded by low mountains. Across the river sprawls flat Pest. The geology of Budapest has played a determining role in the city’s life over the course of history. Hot springs breaking through limestone mountains supplying water of 35-76 degrees centigrade gave rise to a flourishing culture of spas in the Roman Age and made Budapest one of the most popular spa cities of Europe.
