find their voice in a public setting. Speakers applying for this track are strongly encouraged to participate in the BSidesLV Mentorship Program and will be welcomed by the Board of Directors prior to acceptance.

Pseudonymity is encouraged and talks will not be recorded or streamed online. No press will be allowed entry and photography will not be tolerated. NDA's will be provided for the speakers who wish to request them from their audiences. This track will only be selected by the CFP committee and Board of Directors, it will not be put to public vote.

From Thursday, 26 July 2012 till Sunday, 29 July 2012
Location: Rio Hotel, Las Vegas, United States

DEFCON is one of the oldest continuous running hacker conventions around, and also one of the largest. DEFCON 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 DEFCON. 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 DEFCON. Some people see every speech they can, while others miss all speeches. Other activities include coffee wars, WI-FI shoot outs, robot contests, TCP/IP contests, movie marathons, scavenger hunts, sleep deprivation, lock picking, warez trading, drunken parties, spot the fed contest, charity dunk tanks, the Black and White Ball.
