Two weeks ago we sold out the S4 venue we have used for the first five years. This was not a surprise with last year selling out in mid-December, the increased interest in ICS security and the S4 2013 Agenda. In preparation we came up with a way to double the available size by using two case study rooms and essentially running each day twice. The good news is you will have another 60 ICS security researchers and thought leaders to meet at S4 2013.
But that’s it. When the remaining spots are gone we have no room to expand the event further. If you want to be guarantee your spot at S4 you need to register now. (BTW some of the Advanced ICS Security Classes are near capacity as well.)
UPDATE – Sponsor Blue Hat Competition
We are encouraging all S4 sponsors to put something on the S4 Blue Hat network. This will be available continuously from Tuesday 10AM to Thursday 4PM. S4 attendees will be able to hack and otherwise interact with the devices on the network. It’s a great opportunity to expose security solutions to the S4 attendees.
Honestly, we are not sure how this will work out. We are encouraging sponsors to be creative and provide an interesting and interactive environment for the attendees. They can issue user accounts, provide information, show live or recorded attack information or whatever else comes to mind. We will have three S4 attendees judge the participants on security, innovation, learning, interactivity and whatever else they want to include.
If you are interested in becoming an S4 sponsor, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
