[Overview]

After taking two years off to work on our surfing skills we decided it
was time to bring some top notch
technical talent back to one of the most remote locations on earth.

Sitting around somewhere freezing your a$$ off? Dreaming about warm
days, rainbows, decadent
tropical drinks sipped out of coconuts? Sure you could drop your 0day in
Vegas, bring down the
Internet in Germany, or satisfy your dark desires in Asia; however,
wouldn't you rather submit your
research or topics to our CFP and maybe win yourself a paid trip to
Hawaii?

The Shakacon security conference is a laid back conference where
industry, government, academia
and independent experts will get together to share knowledge and
experience in one of the most
beautiful places on Earth.

Shakacon will offer local, national, and international participants a
casual, social, learning
environment designed to present a "holistic" security view and the
opportunity to network with
peers and fellow enthusiasts in a relaxed setting. Leave your ego at
the airport (or shoreline
if you come in via another method) as we look forward to attendees
varying in skill level from N00b
to Ninja.

During the day, sessions will include: best practices, case studies,
research projects, etc.
covering all different aspects of the information security landscape.
There will be something
for everyone and if sitting through talks isn't your cup of kava, there
will be exciting events
and contests for you to sharpen your skills and knowledge on.



[Trainer Opportunities]

Don't want to speak at the Con but have an uncanny ability to teach and
a proven track record for
delivering quality courseware and want to come to Hawaii? We're also
interested in bringing in trainers
to provide world class training leading up to Shakacon (June 18 and 19).
Submit a synopsis/class agenda,
prior teaching experience, and maybe get selected to teach in Hawaii.

and non-technical submissions on all aspects of security. The key
