*** ABOUT ******************************
THOTCON (pronounced \ˈthȯt\ and taken from THree - One - Two) is a small
venue hacking conference based in Chicago IL, USA. This is a non-profit,
non-commercial event looking to provide the best conference possible on
a very limited budget.

This is the 3rd year for THOTCON. Last year was a sold out event with
world-class speakers and talks.

This year we'll be expanding the attendance to 500 and 20 talks.

*** WHEN / WHERE ***********************
The conference will be held in Chicago, IL USA on 04.27.12.

It will be held at a location only to be disclosed to attendees and
speakers during the week before the event. It WILL be in the City of
Chicago and close to a CTA train stop, accessible by bus, cab, and even
a rickshaw (we have them in Chicago).

*** FORMAT *****************************
The event will be a single track.

There will be ten (10) 50-minute talks and ten (10) 25-minute turbo
talks selected.

Topics we are interested in: retro computing, forensics, robotics,
physical security, 0days, application hacking, wireless, malware
development/research, hackerspaces, The Muppets, Penguins, zombies,
attack detection, the number 7, online game hacking, consumer device
hacking, beer, and bananas [foster].

This year, based upon past attendee feedback, the selection committee
will be prioritizing technical talks over non-technical talks.

*** SPEAKER PERKS **********************
Speakers will be given free admission to the conference as well as one
(1) free attendee badge (to bring a guest). In addition, 50-minute
speakers who give their presentation as planned, will be given a THOTCON
life-time attendance badge. This means you will be given free entry to
every future THOTCON event for life.

You will also have access to the THOTCON VIP Lounge. This means you will
have access to free stuff (food and drinks). We don't have anything else
to give, except you can tell your mom and your friends you spoke at the

*** Sponsors ***************************

use your help. We are not looking for actual conference sponsors, but

speakers. We are looking for sponsors at $2,000.00 USD each to cover the
cost of the party. Email sponsors@thotcon.org to become a sponsor.
