Do you have a fear of being naked in front of other people? Can you name a president who has climbed a palm tree during an official state visit? Do you prefer small and efficient airports? Would you like to present world class research to a highly technical audience? If not sure yet, please continue reading.
t2 infosec is warmly welcoming you to Helsinki, on October 26-27 2017 – CFP is now open, and by submitting a talk, you get a chance to answer one or more of the previous questions.
Finland, the country in the heart of darkness, has managed to survive neutral and independent throughout its history despite facing pressure from the global superpowers due to her geopolitically strategic location. Dominance over the Baltic sea depends on controlling a handful of islands, Åland islands being one of the areas of importance. In a very typical Finnish fashion, we have embraced the 160 years of Åland islands demilitarization by drinking at home, alone, in our underwear. Even Vogue approves that.
While many people here would like to officially see us as the gateway between the East and the West – either through our land border with Russia or the fastest flights between Europe and Asia , the biggest advantage comes from the side alleys of the Internet. On the imageboards, the last sanctions for true freedom of speech, Finnish tactical meme capabilities hold a special stature – loved, admired, feared and hated, sometimes all of those at the same time. Classics like Spurdo spärde are shitposted with an intensity only a country with a long history in developing Linux, Internet protocols and mobile phones can provide, while new organic highly viral OC is pushed out at a rate comparable to major information warfare centers.
In addition to meeting the nation, which produces above average amounts of hackers, memelords and F1 drivers per capita, Helsinki in October offers you a mix of modern architecture and the Classics, saunas, casual foreign intelligence activities , early days of Northern European winter and cold weather, and chance to visit neighboring countries by just hopping onto a ferry at one of the harbors.
We organize this conference out of love and do our best to make it a memorable experience to both speakers and audience alike. If you’re in doubt, just send questions with #t2infosec hashtag on Twitter for an (un)biased opinion. This is an event from hackers to hackers.
