About Us

The aim of eHaCON 2018 is to give an open platform where people can discuss the implication of new technologies for secured society. eHaCON 2018 is a balanced mix conference consisting of technical paper presentations, live demonstrations, workshops and coding competitions on hacking. The goal is to kick-start efforts to fully automate cyber defense. The most substantial new findings about computer network attacks and defenses, commercial security solutions, and pragmatic real world security experience will be presented in a two-day series of informative workshops and invited talks. We happily open doors to researchers and hackers around the world and the universe, working on the next big thing in security and request everyone to submit their new research papers, and/or workshop proposals for selection by the eHaCON 2018 technical review committee.
