Welcome to Summercon.ORG

Summercon is one of the oldest hacker conventions, and the longest running such conference in America. It helped set a precedent for more modern "cons" such as H.O.P.E. and DEF CON, although it has remained smaller and more personal. Summercon has been hosted in cities such as Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Atlanta, New York, Washington, D.C., Austin, Las Vegas, and Amsterdam.

Speaker Updates

May 7th, 2015

The Speakers and Presentations section has been updated with more info. Kelly Lum, Zach Lanier, Patroklos Argyroudis, and Billy Rios have been added as speakers. Check out the Presentations section for info on their talks. The Schedule section has also been updated but like before, it's probably subject to a bit of juggling.

Hotel Updates

May 4th, 2015

We've arranged for a room discount at the Brooklyn Fairfield Inn. Check out the Conference section for more info.

Early April Updates

April 6th, 2015

We've started finalizing the line-up and put up a couple of speakers and their presentations. We've also settled on a schedule format. We're happy to announce that Collin Mulliner, Corey Kallenberg, Dino Dai Zovi, and Charlie Miller will be a part of the 2015 Summercon line-up. Checkout the Speakers section for their bios, the Presentations section for some info on their talks, and the Schedule section for the menu though that is probably subject to a bit of juggling.

CFP not

We are trying something new with the "CFP" this year. There is no CFP. We're going to work our tails off to try to get the best speakers and presentations. Trust us. What could go wrong? Check it out Un-CFP.
