Here we go again: TROOPERS12 is scheduled for March 19th – 23rd 2012 in Heidelberg, Germany.
Those who attended TROOPERS before know for what we are up to. For all newcomers I’ll quickly outline what’s going to happen:
TROOPERS is your premium IT security event in Europe. Think of your usual IT educational event without annoying sales pitching and outdated topics. Now add a superb conference location, an elite line-up of international researchers and practitioners as well as an organizing team not dedicated to make a living doing this, but to celebrate our craftsmanship together with like-minded people.
Sounds good? Let’s see what we have planned for you:
Monday & Tuesday
We start with a great selection of workshops. You’ll have a bigger choice than ever before:
One-day workshops on Monday:
- Advanced IPv6 Security
- Android Security
- ISECOM Workshop (to be announced shortly)
One-day workshops on Tuesday:
- Advanced Email Security
- iOS Security
- ISECOM’s “Smarter, Safer, Better” security awareness training
- Hacking 101 – Your personal preparation for PacketWars (and beyond…)
Wednesday & Thursday
These are the main conference days. Expect more than 20 international researchers coming in to present on their latest discoveries – ready to share their experience with you. In order to serve you with the latest and greatest we won’t announce a final agenda yet. Topics of already confirmed talks include:
- Web Application Firewalls
- SAP Hacking
- Quantum Cryptography
We’ll finish up with a bunch of roundtable sessions. This is the perfect place to recap the week’s happenings and look ahead on upcoming developments.
Something is missing right?
A TROOPERS conference is more than a yearly get-together of some IT guys. This event is for enthusiasts, idealists and doers of all nationalities, age groups and sexes. Our common denominator is the passion for what we do and the strong belief that we will succeed in the daily battle of IT security. Professionals from various backgrounds are longing for an environment where their thoughts, work and experience is appreciated and amplified.
Therefore we spare no efforts to do just that. To name just a few highlights of your complimentary supporting program:
- Shared dinner in the Old Town
- PacketWars hacking contest
- 10k Morning run to keep you going
- [TOP SECRET] Competition
We’re looking forward to meet you soon,
Florian & the TROOPERS/ERNW crew
