Eth0:2012 summer

From Tuesday, 14 August 2012 till Saturday, 18 August 2012
Location: het Boshuis, Wieringerwerf, Netherlands, The

Eth0:2012 Summer is an outdoor high-tech geek conference planned for this summer. It aims toward sharing knowledge on tech/IT related fields including security, networks, programming, privacy, new (open) technologies, ethics and hacking. At daylight there are talks on these subjects, but when the sun goes down its definitely time to pick up the slack. There will be enough to do, as we have a bonfire, a fully equipped lounge (with bar) and an overload of hackerspace activity. Maybe someone brings along lasers and there is room to party. Enough reason to pick up the slack and go to Eth0?

The event starts at the 14th of august and will last for a full five days, one more than most of these camps. Its a Geek Certified Outdoor Camping Craze(tm): a.k.a. we're situated in a heavily forested area. The camp-site provides everything you might want. Such as showers, a conference hall, mosquitoes, a lounge, villages and enough grassy bits to set up your tent.

SecSE 2012

From Monday, 20 August 2012 till Saturday, 25 August 2012
Location: Prague, Czech Republic

International Workshop on Secure Software Engineering (SecSE)
In conjunction with ARES 2012

Software security is about protecting information and ensuring that systems continue to function correctly even when under malicious attack. The traditional approach of securing a system has been to create defensive walls such as intrusion detection systems and firewalls around it, but there are always cracks in these walls, and thus such measures are no longer sufficient by themselves. We need to be able to build better, more robust and more “inherently secure” systems, and we should strive to achieve these qualities in all software systems, not just in the ones that “obviously” need special protection. This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for engineering secure and dependable software.
