Hi Folks, as you all know, we are facing difficult times and due to the uncertain international situation, we have made a decision to move #Hacktivity2020 into the virtual space. So clear your calendars for 8-10 October 2020 and make sure to take part! Good news is that you can do it from all over the world!
We are thrilled to announce the official program of #Hacktivity2020 Live! Just like last year, we have received tons of excellent papers and the Program Committee had a hard time selecting the best of them. This time we’ll have 44 speakers from 20 countries so the international atmosphere and the professional content are guaranteed.
KEYWORDS for 2020:
- online stream;
- live discussions;
- 3 days long conference;
- 3 streams: English, Hungarian, free (with very limited content);
- talk-show with IT sec experts between the talks;
- virtual sponsor booths,
- 2 hours long workshop sessions;
When we decided to hold #Hacktivity2020 as a virtual event the most important driving factor was not to let our audience down and still provide the latest trends of cybersecurity while keeping the opportunity of networking. These two cornerstones lead to the concept of what we call #Hacktivity2020 Live!
We will provide 20 and 40 minutes presentations and roundtable discussions as usual via live stream and give the opportunity to our audience to interact with the speakers on our Discord channel. After every presentation, there will be a 5 minutes long Q&A session, where the presenters will answer your questions. After each Q&A session, we will switch to our studio where cybersecurity experts will discuss the presentations just like in a TV-magazine or a sports broadcasting.
In addition to the presentations, we will provide 2 hours long comprehensive workshop sessions throughout the 3 days of #Hacktivity2020 Live! The workshop sessions will be held via Zoom and will be announced very soon, so stay tuned for more information coming at you!
These features mentioned above will only be available for our ticket buyers. Each and every ticket holder will receive a special code on their tickets. This code will be the key to entering our live-stream page where the magic will happen. We are currently developing this page to get the maximum out of the virtual space to provide extraordinary content that comes close to the experience of a personal event.
As you can see, #Hacktivity is going to be a special event in 2020. This year, we cannot risk to make it as a usual personal conference, but we believe that the virtual version will be just as exciting, fun, and informative. This is the wise decision to make right now. We hope that you understand it and see you in our virtual audience this year!
The Hacktivity Team
