One Schedule to Rule them All!


Welcome to the "One Schedule to Rule them All!". Thank you for your interest by using this. This is an attempt to make things easier for you, the DEF CON attendee, to figure out the when/what/where during the chaos of DEF CON 27.

It started out simple. I had a Kindle and wanted an ebook of the schedule so I didn't have to wear out the paper pamphlet by pulling it out after every talk to figure out where to go next. Back then there was only the main DEF CON tracks, not really any Villages, and production of the ebooks were easy. Over time the Village system developed with a resulting multiplication in complexity, both for attendees and for my production. The offerings have expanded from epub and mobi formats and now include html, csv, ical, public Google calendar, and mysql dump format files. Hopefully you'll find something of use.

The intent is still to be a resource to answer the question at the end of an hour of "What's next?"

As a general rule I do not include:

Be sure to check out the Links section at the bottom of this. Most all of the events listed here were derived from these links. There is much more going on at DEF CON than what is listed here. In particular check out the Villages, Parties & Meetups, Contest & Events, and defconparties pages.

Check out the Guides/Tips/FAQs links if you're new to Las Vegas.
Notable suggestions are:

And finally, this is only as good as the ideas and information used to generate it. I welcome your constructive suggestions and comments. Please send them to qumqats@outel.org

Have a good time at DEF CON 27!

DEF CON News


Check it all out!

DEF CON 27 image

Can you feel that? It’s getting close now. Just a few weeks. Time to get your pre-con recon together.

To that end, we’ve got a lot of stuff on defcon.org ready to help you. You need maps? We got maps. You want to know the lowdown on contests? Villages? It’s in there. Parties, Demo Labs, Talks, everything you could want, just waiting for you to check on it.

And if any of that leaves you with questions, or suggestions, or the sudden urge to communicate, please stop by the DEF CON Forums, where the forum elves have thoughtfully left you a thread for just about any con topic you can conjure.

Let’s DO this thing, people.

Lend a hand to DEAFCON!

DEAFCON image

The wonderful people of DEAFCON have been providing ASL interpreters to DEF CON for years now. This year they're raising funds to expand - to bring out 8 volunteers to float around the conference and interpret by request. Please consider a donation.

DEF CON 27 Workshops!

DEF CON 27 workshops updates image

The v. popular Workshops are back for DEF CON 27 and workshops page is UP! You can dig into all the sweet details and see if any of the offerings call out to you.

If you want in, you’ll need to be ready Monday, July 8 at 3pm PST when registration goes live. Workshops fill up _very_ quickly. Be ready! Bookmark your favorites and keep your mousing finger loose and hydrated.

All DEF CON 27 Speakers are Live!

DEF CON 27 speaker updates image

DEF CON 27 is another step closer: speaker selection is complete! The speaker page has the full lineup waiting for your careful examination. Your planning can now begin in earnest.

We’d like to thank everyone who submitted presentations this year - Getting the speaker list into its final form is never easy, largely because of how many great submissions we get.

Also, much respect to the CFP review board, who must read through the tsunami of submissions, assist the promising and make the hard cuts. This is high-effort, low-visibility work, but anyone who’s ever been inspired by a DEF CON talk owes them some love.

It’s time to get psyched, people. The time of our reunion approaches.

Short Story Contest Winners Announced!

DEF CON 27 contest results image

Congratulations to the winners of the DEF CON 27 Short Story Contest!

from the official thread on the DEF CON forums:

"In FIRST place we have "Dye Sublimation" by Selene Sun! We loved the quick, well-told, and charming story about taking chances.

In SECOND place is "Parsnips" by David Hash Miller (@DavidHashMiller), a fun and creative romp with nanotechnology. Congrats!

People's Choice award goes to "Red Balloons Over China" by FengJiu! It was a hard choice, but it won majority vote amongst our judges for this year. What a wild and wonderful story that gives hope for tomorrow!

While we couldn’t give out badges to everyone, we absolutely loved all of the entries and highly encourage folks to go out and read them all! Congrats to our winners and thank you to everyone for making choosing just a few so difficult."

Consider reading these a DC27 homework assignment. Stop by the forum thread and show a little love for the literary champions of DEF CON 27.

You’ll be helping us smooth the rough edges, and we’ll help you get the most out of your Con experience. Wins all around.

A new feature you might find useful is the con calendar, with the dates of major DEF CON deadlines like calls and village CFPs, all right there to keep you on track!

It’s officially DEF CON 27 Open Call season, and we have a nice big one for you today: the Call for Villages is officially open!

Did you look at last year’s 20+ villages and say to yourself, “You know what Village they really need”? Have you been sitting on an idea you know could change the Village game? This is your moment. Share it with us, and if we agree with you we’ll help you make it happen.

A word to the wise, however. The Villages are a lot of work. They require a lot of planning and thinking through, and a lot of personnel support. If you want a chance at getting your idea on, it’s in your interest not to wait until the deadline. The sooner you get in touch, the more we can help. Procrastinating entrants will be fighting for limited space and limited attention from the team making the decisions. Don’t let that be you.

The rules and regulations are available online, and our operators are standing by. Get your ideas together, assemble your team and let’s do this one big.

That rumble you’re feeling? It’s the DEF CON machinery coming online for 2019. Feel free to get psyched.

DEF CON 27 Theme guide image

Tidings of comfort and joy, luminous humans of DEF CON! It’s almost 2019, which means we’re that much closer to DC27.

In anticipation, we’ve created a little 'Technology’s Promise' ePub with homework assignments for the eager, and color and style suggestions for those of you looking to create themed content.

There will be plenty more prompts and inspirations in the coming days, but we encourage you dig in and start preparing. Marinate.

As always, we thank the whole community for the love and enthusiasm you bring to all things DEF CON. We love you right back. Big things are brewing, y’all. Let’s get it underway!

DEF CON 27 Theme!

DEF CON 27 Theme image

Preparations are well underway for DEF CON 27. Meetings are being met, plans are being planned, and the theme is ready for its unveiling.

DEF CON 26 was about the inflection point between disorder and dystopia - the moment before point of no return. This year's theme, in a way, responds to '1983' with new questions. What does it look like when we make the better choice? What kind of world do we hack together in the sunniest timeline? How does our real best-case scenario compare to the future we've been dreaming of for generations?

So, we offer you 'Technology's Promise'. It's a break from the dystopian imagery into a major-key, blue-sky thoughtscape, full of color and light. It's a future where we have tamed some of the more intractable problems that plague us in the present, where technology supports and inspires instead of controlling and surveilling.

To get you in the proper mindset, here's some media to sample:

Star Trek TOS - because the series is based on a future Earth that has learned to manage itself, make working alliances with neighbors and turn its attention to the disciplined exploration of the broader universe. Also LCARS is still cool.

Asimov's Robot series - a future where humankind has built AI android tech that supports rather than supplants humanity, and (usually) behaves itself admirably.

BioShock - a genuinely thought-provoking game about the promises and limits of tech-based utopia.

Kraftwerk, Com Truise, Tangerine Dream - the beautiful sounds of our neon future, rendered in the gorgeously synthesized tones that can only come from the fruitful marriage of human and machine.

We'll be posting more of this as DC27 approaches. Lots more. This is going to be fun.

Join us, won't you?

DEF CON 27 FAQ


This FAQ was created to help answer some questions you may have about this years DEF CON. If you need more info or questions regarding DEF CON please check out the general DEF CON FAQ list. Available here: https://www.defcon.org/html/links/dc-faq/dc-faq.html


When and where is DEF CON 27?

DEF CON is generally in the last week of July or first week of August in Las Vegas. DEF CON 27 will be held August 8-11, 2019, at Paris, Ballys, Flamingo & Planet Hollywood hotels in Las Vegas. Many people arrive a day early, and many stay a day later. Again this year we will have some things running on Thursday.


Is DEF CON 27 canceled?

No.


How much is admission?

$300.00 USD, Cash for all four days. Everyone pays the same: The government, the media, the ‘well known hackers’, the unknown script kiddies. The only discount is for Goons and speakers, who get to work without paying for the privilege. We only accept cash - no checks, no money orders, no travelers checks. We don't want to be a target of any State or Federal fishing expeditions.


Can I pre-register for DEF CON?

No.


How many people will be there?

Last year we had more than 25,000 people at DEF CON! The last few years, attendence has been in the 20-25k range.


How much do rooms at cost, and how do I reserve a room?

The DEF CON rate is available at the following hotels: Caesars Palace, Paris, Bally's, Flamingo and Quad. Check out the DEF CON 27 Venue page for all the details!


I can't afford that.

Try the Ride and Room sharing threads on the Forums.

You may also want to visit your Local DEF CON Groups meeting and see who you might want to bunk up with. It's important to mention you should use good judgment when sharing a room and consider who is sleeping next to you and who has access to your belongings. That said, there are a lot of great people looking to save a buck or pinch a penny, good luck.


Can I get a discount on DEF CON badges?

DEF CON charges one price regardless of your social status or affiliation. Please know that we depend on attendee income to pay the costs of the conference and don't have sponsors to help defray the expenses.

We sometimes get requests for discounts [students, veterans, children], unfortunately we don't want to try and validate if you are a current student, look at your ID to determine your age, decode military discharge papers, etc.

If you really want to attend DEF CON for free then do something for the con.

You could:
Submit a CFP and be an accepted speaker or workshop instructor.
Work on a contest, event, or village.
Qualify for CTF/Contests that include entry.
Find a team to become a Goon newbie.
Contribute to content, or perform some entertainment.


I need a letter of invite for my visa application, how do I get that?

In most cases, DEF CON can send a signed letter of invite, usually within a few short business days once we have all the info. If you also require verification of housing, we can put you in touch with someone to help you get your hotel stay organized, let us know if you need that.

Along with your request, please email us the following to info(at)defcon(.)org

Passport number:

How much is internet access in the rooms

It Varies by hotel. Internet access is available for free in the convention area.


Is there a free network at DEF CON?

Why yes, DEF CON is FULLY network-enabled. Now that we've perfected the art of a stable hacker con network, we're ascending to a higher level - we're providing you a network that you feel SAFE in using! Since DEF CON 18 we're WPA2 encrypted over-the-air, with a direct trunk out to the Internet. No peer-to-peer, no sniffing, just straight to the net (and internal servers). We'll provide login credentials at Registration. We know the 3G airwaves will be saturated so we're putting our own cred on the line to give you a net that even we would put our own mobile phones on.

If you're feeling frisky, we'll still have the traditional "open" network for you - bring your laptop (we'd recommend a clean OS, fully patched--you know the procedure) because we don't police what happens on that net. Share & enjoy!


What about the smoking policy?

Due to the Clean Air Act in Las Vegas, the Vendor Area, Speaking rooms, and Hallways will be completely non-smoking in order to comply with the law. The Hotel will have designated smoking areas clearly posted.


What is the age limit?

People have brought children to DEF CON - it is not recommended to do this unless you are going to constantly supervise them. It is generally an ‘adult’ atmosphere (language, booze, et cetera). If you've never been to DEF CON, you may want to refrain from bringing your children (unless they are demanding that you bring them). While there are no age limits, we have consistently cooperated with parents and/or private investigators who are looking for children that ‘ran away from home’ to go to DEF CON. You must be 18 years of age or older to reserve a hotel room and to check-in. A valid ID is required upon check-in. DEF CON 27 will have enforcement of the 21 or older rule in certain "private" parties with possible bouncers at the doors checking IDs. This is generally the rule in all areas where alcohol is being served. However, DEF CON does not take responsibility for anything potentially indecent or offensive your minor may witness or participate in. The underage attendee is the responsibility of his or her guardian or themselves.

The presentations are open to all ages. Observation of contests as they take place on the contest floor is open to all ages.

Competition in some contests may have age restrictions due to laws. There is plenty fun to be had without booze and gambling! There is a discussion regarding fun for those under 21 on the forums. https://forum.defcon.org/showthread.php?t=8232


I want to speak, how do I give a talk?

GREAT! We are looking for and give preference to: unique research, new tool releases, Ø-day attacks (with responsible disclosure), highly technical material, social commentaries, and ground breaking material of any kind. Want to screen a new hacking documentary or release research? Consider DEF CON. To submit a speech, read the Announcement and complete the DEF CON 27 Call for Papers Form: https://www.defcon.org/html/defcon-27/dc-27-cfp-form.html CFP forms and questions should get mailed to: talks/at/defcon.org


When does the CFP Close? Can I get an Extension?

DEF CON 27 Call For Papers will close on May 1, 2019.


How can I help or participate?

DEF CON is not a spectator sport! Before the con, during, and after there are chances for you to get involved. Below is a list of this years contests and events. This list may not be complete so check the forums to see what people are up to.

Go to the forums for more info on Contests and Events: https://forum.defcon.org/node/227574


How do I become a Vendor?

If you want a space in our vendor area, you need to apply. Because of limited space and our attempt to have a diversity of vendors, you may not be able to get a booth. It is wise to think of staffing issues - if you are one person do you want to spend your entire time behind a vendors booth?


I'm press, how do I sign up, why can't I get in for free (I'm just doing my job)?

Please check out the DEF CON 27 Press Registration page if you wish press credentials. Lots of people come to DEF CON and are doing their job; security professionals, federal agents, and the press. It wouldn't be fair to DEF CON attendees if we exempted one group from paying. If you are a major network and plan on doing a two minute piece showing all the people with blue hair, you probably shouldn't bother applying for a press pass - you won't get one. If you are a security writer or from a real publication please submit, and someone will respond with an answer.


What should I bring to DEF CON?

It depends on what you're going to do at DEF CON. This is discussed in quite some depth on the unofficial DC FAQ. You may want to bring fancy (or outrageously silly) clothes for the Black and White Balls, annual Friday and Saturday night events where everyone shows off nifty attire. SWAG is Always recommended, people LOVE to trade! You never know when or where a t-shirt with your .org will come in handy. Government SWAG is a hot commodity, however, DT wishes to pillage those goods first! Its generally a good idea if you are a pale geek to have some sunscreen at the top of your list. Other honorable mentions are: Blister preventions, Band-aids, Gel shoe inserts, Personal cooling devices, Pain relievers and antacids, Bottle openers, Personal voice recorders, water filters, and last but not least an Alibi.


This FAQ didn't answer my questions, or was unclear, how can I get further information?

Please visit: https://www.defcon.org for previous conference archives, information, and speeches. Updated announcements will be posted to news groups, security mailing lists and this web site.

DEF CON FAQ


Frequently asked questions about DEF CON



What is DEF CON?

DEF CON is one of the oldest continuously running hacker conventions around, and also one of the largest.



How did DEF CON start?

Originally started in 1993, it was a meant to be a party for member of "Platinum Net", a Fido protocol based hacking network out of Canada. As the main U.S. hub I was helping the Platinum Net organizer (I forget his name) plan a closing party for all the member BBS systems and their users. He was going to shut down the network when his dad took a new job and had to move away. We talking about where we might hold it, when all of a sudden he left early and disappeared. I was just planning a party for a network that was shut down, except for my U.S. nodes. I decided what the hell, I'll invite the members of all the other networks my BBS (A Dark Tangent System) system was a part of including Cyber Crime International (CCI), Hit Net, Tired of Protection (ToP), and like 8 others I can't remember. Why not invite everyone on #hack? Good idea!



Where did the name come from?

The short answer is a combination of places. There as a SummerCon in the summer, a HoHoCon in the winter, a PumpCon during Halloween, etc. I didn't want any association with a time of year. If you are a Phreak, or just use your phone a lot you'll notes "DEF" is #3 on the phone. If you are into military lingo DEF CON is short for "Defense Condition." Now being a fan of the movie War Games I took note that the main character, David Lightman, lived in Seattle, as I do, and chose to nuke Las Vegas with W.O.P.R. when given the chance. Well I knew I was doing a con in Vegas, so it all just sort of worked out.

There are several resources that will give you an idea of what DEF CON is all about.

DEF CON Press: through the prism of the media
DEF CON Groups: Local groups that meet
DEF CON Media Server: DC 1 to the present, captured
Google: always a good research starting point
Just remember, DEF CON is what you make of it.



When and where is DEF CON?

DEF CON is generally in the last week of July or first week of August in Las Vegas. DEF CON 27 will be held August 8th through August 11th at Paris, Bally's, Flamingo, and Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Many people arrive a day early, and many stay a day later.


Isn't there a DEF CON FAQ already?

Yes, an unofficial one. It's quite humorous, sometimes informative, and DEF CON takes no responsibility for its content. It can be found at http://defcon.stotan.org/faq/



What are the rules of DEF CON?

Physical violence is prohibited. We don't support illegal drug use. Minors should be accompanied by their parent(s) or guardian(s). Please refrain from doing anything that might jeopardize the conference or attendees such as lighting your hair on fire or throwing lit road flares in elevators. DEF CON Goons are there to answer your questions and keep everything moving. Hotel security is there to watch over their property. Each has a different mission, and it is wise to not anger the hotel people. Please be aware that if you engage in illegal activities there is a large contingency of feds that attend DEF CON. Talking about how you are going to bomb the RNC convention in front of an FBI agent is a Career Limiting Move!



Is DEF CON cancelled?

No.



What is there to do at DEF CON?

DEF CON is a unique experience for each con-goer. If you google around you'll find dozens of write-ups that will give you an idea of what people have experienced at DEF CON. Trust write-ups more than media articles about the con. Some people play capture the flag 24x7, while many people never touch a computer at DEF CON. Some people see every speech they can, while others miss all speeches. Other activities include contests, movie marathons, scavenger hunts, sleep deprivation, lock picking, warez trading, drunken parties, spot the fed contest, the official music events. Because DEF CON is what the attendees make of it, there are more events than even we are aware of. Half the fun is learning what happened at DEF CON after the fact!



I'm not a hacker, should I go to DEF CON?

Many people have different definitions of what is a ‘hacker’. I would recommend looking at previous years speeches, and write-ups from past attendees - this should give you a good idea if DEF CON is for you. This hacker FAQ might give you some insight into the matter as well. If you do not have any technical interests, DEF CON is probably not for you. Sure there is a lot of socializing you can do, but technology and hacking is the core of the con.



Do criminals go to DEF CON?

Yes. They also go to high school, college, work in your workplace, and the government. There are also lawyers, law enforcement agents, civil libertarians, cryptographers, and hackers in attendance. Ssshhh. Don't tell anyone.



What are Goons?

They are the staff at DEF CON. They have many roles including safety, speaker coordination, vendor room coordination, network operations, et cetera... Please try to be helpful to them if they make requests of you. If any goon tells you to move, please do so immediately as there may be safety issues they are attempting to address.



How can I help out or become a Goon?

The staff at DEF CON has grown organically. All positions have some degree of trust associated with them, so typically new goons are ‘inducted’ by friends of existing goons. There are many random points when goons need help and may ask people for help, generally for helping move stuff or other tasks that don't require high amounts of trust or unsupervised work. Just because you help out doesn't make you a goon. If you really want to be a goon, talk with one and see how much work they actually do (Hint: you may want to enjoy being at DEF CON, not working full-time at it). One year the network group got a new Goon when a networking engineer was needed, and he came to the rescue. The intent behind the goons is not to be elitist, but to have a network of trusted people who can help run the conference - please do not feel upset if you are not chosen to be a goon.



How can I help or participate?

DEF CON is not a spectator sport! Before the con, during, and after there are chances for you to get involved. Before the con you can read about the contests and maybe sign up for one like Capture the Flag. There are artwork contests for shirts and posters. You can practice your lock pick skills, or just get your laptop all locked down and ready to do battle. Organize your .mp3s. Check out the DEF CON Forums to see what other people are up to. If you want to create your own event, you can do that as well - you will not get official space or sanctions, but virtually every official event at DEF CON started out as an unofficial event.



I would love to see XYZ event, how do I make this happen?

Virtually all events at DEF CON were conceived by the attendees. The DEF CON forums are a great place for recruiting help for an event you want to put on, and making sure your efforts aren't being duplicated. If it doesn't require resources from DEF CON (space, namely) you generally don't have to ask anyone’s permission. Most events are unofficial until they've been going on for a couple of years. Please let us know if you have an idea for an event, we may help facilitate or promote it. Email [suggestions at DEF CON dot org] to keep us in the loop.



How can I speak at DEF CON?

You can submit a response to our CFP (call for papers). All entries are read and evaluated by a selection committee. We would love to have your submission. The call for papers usually opens in March and closes mid-May.



I'm press, how do I sign up, why can't I get in for free (I'm just doing my job)?

Please email press[at]defcon[d0t]org if you wish press credentials. Lots of people come to DEF CON and are doing their job; security professionals, federal agents, and the press. It wouldn't be fair to DEF CON attendees if we exempted one group from paying. If you are a major network and plan on doing a two minute piece showing all the people with blue hair, you probably shouldn't bother applying for a press pass - you won't get one. If you are a security writer or from a real publication please submit, and someone will respond with an answer.



I want to sell stuff, how do I do this?

If you want a space in our vendor area, you need to apply. Because of limited space and our attempt to have a diversity of vendors, you may not be able to get a booth. It is wise to think of staffing issues - if you are one person do you want to spend your entire time behind a vendors booth?



What are the different price rates?

Everyone pays the same: The government, the media, the ‘well known hackers’, the unknown script kiddies. The only discount is for Goons and speakers, who get to work without paying for the privilege.



How much is admission DEF CON, and do you take credit cards?

DEF CON 27 will cost $300 USD Cash for all four days. Do we take credit cards? Are you JOKING? No, we only accept cash - no checks, no money orders, no travelers checks. We don't want to be a target of any State or Federal fishing expeditions.



Does my underage child need a badge?

Children under the age of 8 will not need to purchase a badge.



Can I pre-register for DEF CON?

No. We used to do this a long time ago, but found that managing the registration list, and preventing one 'Dr. Evil' from impersonating another 'Dr. Ev1l' too much of a hassle. Seeing how we would only take cash in the first place, and things becomes time consuming and easy to abuse. Cash at the door works every time.



Can I get a discount on DEF CON badges?

DEF CON charges one price regardless of your social status or affiliation. Please know that we depend on attendee income to pay the costs of the conference and don't have sponsors to help defray the expenses.

We sometimes get requests for discounts [students, veterans, children], unfortunately we don't want to try and validate if you are a current student, look at your ID to determine your age, decode military discharge papers, etc.

DEF CON is too expensive, how can I afford it?

DEF CON is cheaper than many concerts, and certainly cheaper than many shows in Vegas. Many people have made an art and science out of coming to DEF CON very cheaply. Here are a couple of tips.

Travel: Buy airfare in advance, go Greyhound, Carpool, hitch-hike. (Note: this may be dangerous and/or illegal.)
Lodging: Share rooms - some people have up to 10 people they share a room with, find a hotel cheaper than the one that the conference is scheduled at, stay up for three days, etc. (note: this can be hazardous to your health.)
Food: Pack food for your trip, go off site to find food, eat in your hotel rooms, and look for cheap Vegas food at Casinos. (Look for deals and specials that are trying to get you in the door to gamble.) Booze: You don't need to drink. Brew your own and bring it. (It's been done.)
Entrance: $300 can be saved, mow some lawns. Try to go to another 4 day event for cheaper than this that offers so much. We have increased the fees slowly over the years, but also the amount and quality of events have increased.

Inevitably people will try to do some math and pretend that DT gets rich each DEF CON - they seem to lack the ability to subtract.



How many people typically attend DEF CON?

There have been roughly 20,000-23,000 attendees in the last few years of DEF CON. DEF CON 26 had a record showing with well over 25,000.

Is there a network at DEF CON?

Why yes, DEF CON is FULLY network-enabled. Now that we've perfected the art of a stable hacker con network, we're ascending to a higher level - we're providing you a network that you feel SAFE in using! Since DEF CON 18 we're WPA2 encrypted over-the-air, with a direct trunk out to the Internet. No peer-to-peer, no sniffing, just straight to the net (and internal servers). We'll provide login credentials at Registration. We know the LTE airwaves will be saturated so we're putting our own cred on the line to give you a net that even we would put our own mobile phones on.

If you're feeling frisky, we'll still have the traditional "open" network for you - bring your laptop (we'd recommend a clean OS, fully patched--you know the procedure) because we don't police what happens on that net. Share & enjoy!



What is the age limit?

People have brought children to DEF CON - it is not recommended to do this unless you are going to constantly supervise them. It is generally an ‘adult’ atmosphere (language, booze, et cetera). If you've never been to DEF CON, you may want to refrain from bringing your children (unless they are demanding that you bring them). While there are no age limits, we have consistently cooperated with parents and/or private investigators who are looking for children that ‘ran away from home’ to go to DEF CON. You will have to be 18 to reserve a room.



What is a DEF CON "Black Badge"?

The Black Badge is the highest award DEF CON gives to contest winners of certain events. CTF winners sometimes earn these, as well as Hacker Jeopardy winners. The contests that are awarded Black Badges vary from year to year, and a Black Badge allows free entrance to DEF CON for life, potentially a value of thousands of dollars.



How can I get a hold of DT? I tried to mail him and haven't seen a response yet.

DT doesn't dislike you, isn't trying to hurt your feelings, and bears you no ill will. The fact is he gets an unmanageable load of mail continually. Mailing him again may elicit a response. Try mailing FAQ (at) DEFCON.ORG if you have a general question that isn't answered here or in the forums.



Is it hot in Vegas?

Yes. Bring sunscreen (high SPF), do not fall asleep near the pool (lest you wake up to sunburn), and do not walk far in the sun unless you are experienced in dealing with extreme heat. The sun is dangerous in Las Vegas. Sleeping in lawn chairs is a sure way to wake up to severe burns in the morning when that bright yellow thing scorches your skin. Drink plenty of water and liquids - remember that alcohol will dehydrate you.



What should I bring?

It depends on what you're going to do at DEF CON. This is discussed in quite some depth on the unofficial DC FAQ, as well as a thread in the DC Forums. You may want to bring fancy (or outrageously silly) clothes for the official Music events, on Friday and Saturday nights, where everyone shows off nifty attire.



How much do rooms cost, and how do I reserve a room?

The DEF CON 27 group room registration is now live! We have room rates at five hotels, until they run out of rooms in our block.

You may either follow this link: https://book.passkey.com/go/SPDEF9

Do not worry if the form doesn't immediately show the discounted rate. To verify that you're getting our price you can mouse over the dates you've selected or begin the checkout process.


How much is internet access?

We are looking into this. Free (and possibly more dangerous) internet access is available in the convention area.



Will the hotels broadcast the speeches on their cable system?

More info as to the content will be available as planning ensues.



Will we have DEF CON branded poker chips?

You will have to attend DEF CON to find out.



Will conference attendees have entire floors of hotel rooms to themselves?

Probably not. The hotel is very cooperative in attempting to centralize the DEF CON attendees, for their convenience and ours, but there will be non-DEF CON attendees in hotel rooms next to us.



This FAQ didn't answer my questions, or was unclear, how can I get further information?

Check out the DEF CON Forums to ask follow up questions.
