About the Event

Behold: A Code of Conduct

Many years ago, Summercon published its first real code of conduct. This was kind of a landmark, since the Summercon has always prided itself on a certain amount of constructive chaos. That early code of conduct looked like this:

If you love anarchy, want to break things, set off fire alarms, or generally behave like a twlve year old, you probably should stay away--even if you are a twelve year old. Especially if you are a twelve year old. It's not that kind of event, and we're not those kind of people. Even though we're a group of hackers, breaking the law is still illegal.

If you're interested in meeting your peers in the security world, meeting some of the finest people you'll ever know, putting names to faces, and learning about the latest trends in security analysis, we'd love to see you. Mingle, socialize, make lifelong friendships. That's what we're all about.


We still believe in that.

But the world has grown. And while we still love that constructive chaos, we've grown a lot, too. We want everyone to have a good time. And because not everyone knows what that means, we'll be very clear:

SummerCon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for the conference venue, including talks, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be thrown out of the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the conference staff immediately. Anyone wearing a red Summercon Staff shirt will be able to intervene.

In case you don't feel comfortable approaching a member of the staff, call us at 718-687-2948 (718-68 SAW IT) so that you can speak directly with the conference organizers about your concerns.


There, that wasn't so hard, was it?

Radio Summercon

Even though we're planning to push all the noisy people over to Parklife so that attendees can listen to presentations in peace, we're also going to be simulcasting all speaker audio via FM broadcast.

What does this mean? Bring an FM radio and headphones.

Practically any FM radio will do, just make sure you have good headphones.

Summercon 2018 is back in Brooklyn


Live Presentation


Littlefield - 635 Sackett Street, Brooklyn, NY


Video simulcast


Parklife - 636 Degraw Street, Brooklyn, NY


This year Summercon is returning to Littlefield in Brooklyn, New York. We'll be simulcasting all presentations from Littlefield to Parklife, so you won't miss any of the action, but if you want to actually be able to hear the presentations, Littlefield will be a little less berserk than previous years. The conference will span 2 days, Friday, June 29, 2018 - Saturday, June 30, 2018, and run from 11am to 5pm on both days, followed by a 5pm-7pm happy hour.

Littlefield is located at 635 Sackett Street, close to the Union Street R.

It's a pretty laid back space with a main conference area and social area, and most importantly, adjoined by the bar. Summercon was held at Littlefield back in 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016, and 2017 and we had a pretty good time.

   

It is easily accessible by public transit, there's access to a wide variety of dining choices in the nearby areas of Park Slope and Carol Gardens, and there's even a couple of nearby choices for lodging, including a Holiday Inn Express and a budget Super 8 just right around the corner. A subway ride from Union or Barclay's Center (previously Atlantic/Pacific) can take you to Manhattan within 4-6 stops (depending on the line).
