The 12th edition of Hack.lu will take place on October 18-20, 2016, at Parc Hotel Alvisse in Luxembourg.

The opportunity to submit papers for presentation and workshop proposals is now open here. The proposals will be reviewed and selected by the hack.lu program committee.

Last year’s attendance reached a peak with more than 400 world-class security professionals from around 40 different countries. Hack.lu is one of the oldest and largest conferences in Europe on Information Security, which has become an internationally renowned convention within just a few years.

The purpose of hack.lu is to give an open and liberal playground where people can discuss the implication of new technologies in society. It is a balanced convention where technical and non-technical people can meet each other and share freely all kind of information. The most significant new discoveries about computer network attacks and defenses, commercial or free security products, and pragmatic real world security experience will be presented in a three day series of informative tutorials. “This year we will be doing workshops on the first day in the afternoon and talks of 1 hour or 30 minutes in the main track for the three days”, says Alexandre Dulaunoy from CIRCL.
