Event in series PlumberCon

PlumberCon is a unique hacker conference targeted at security researchers, system and network operators, application developers, hardware hackers, hackerspace members, and generally open-minded folks working or participating in the broad fields between information warfare and digital art.

It will combine the knowledge of experienced security speakers, hackers, and information warriors with the fun of a small but 1337 conference at one of Vienna's most comfy & snugly meeting locations: the WerkzeugH. Its main goal therefore is to help attendees understand the current state of art in information technology and security, and showcase projects evolved from the hackerspace movement.

After last year's tagline, The Internet is a Series of Tubes, PlumberCon 10 will take our approach towards security, hacking and technological innovation a step further, therefore being sub-entitled:

Make A Good Hack[edit]

How ever much seriousness or amusement you bring into this, we'll make sure you get an overview of today's state-of-the-art technologies, insight into a bunch of the best hackers' mindsets, and learn new things! Not only will you again have the chance to participate in workshops and the mainly security and networking-focused talks, but also get your hands on some hardware hacking, and join in to various activities, such as...


PacketWars(tm) is an intense, real-time information warfare simulation. Unlike other 'capture the flag' games, the battlegrounds featured in PacketWars use the same software and hardware you would encounter in the real world. This is your chance to proove your l33tness and walk the halls of fame for one night.

Save the date: July 09th - 11th 2010[edit]

The event is going to kick off with activities (including physical activity...), trainings, and an off-site biolab workshop followed by a small party on Friday, July 09th at Vienna's no. 1 hackerspace, the Metalab.

Talks & workshops will be held throughout Saturday & Sunday, July 10th & 11th respectively - making it 3 days and nights of talks, trainings, hands-on workshops, epic haXX0r battles and a little partying; the perfect combination of technology, IT security, hardware hacking, art, music, socializing and good times.
