As you already know, we have the BruCON next week on monday/tuesday (21/22.09) in Brussels and there still is room for volunteers. In case that you are interested, below you will find the link to register. Just pick some shifts and you are in, easy.
The video team needs some hands as well. Volunteering on the video team has the advantage that you can follow all the lectures and get to handle cool gear.

BruCON is an annual security and hacker (* see BruCON FAQ for definition of the word ‘hacker’) conference providing two days of an interesting atmosphere for open discussions of critical infosec issues, privacy, information technology and its cultural/technical implications on society. Organized in Brussels, BruCON offers a high quality line up of speakers, security challenges and interesting workshops. BruCON is a conference by and for the security and hacker(*) community.
The conference tries to create bridges between the various actors active in computer security world, included but not limited to hackers(*), security professionals, security communities, non-profit organizations, CERTs, students, law enforcement agencies, etc…..
BruCON is organized as a non-profit event by volunteers. A group of security enthusiasts decided that it was time in Belgium to have its own security and hacker conference. A lot of countries around the world have these kind of conferences to discuss and present research on computer security and related subject matters. We want to unite people who share the same passion and support the Belgian (research) communities, with BruCON as a yearly highlight. We are not professional organizers and started this as a non-profit organization. We all have full time jobs and dedicate a lot of our free time to this project. Everyone is welcome to join us and help!!
Don’t miss it :)
PS. The team is also looking for Volunteers.
The second BruCON security event will be held from 22th to 25th September 2010 in Brussels, Belgium. The happening is divided into two parts: a security training session is organised the 22th and 23th and a conference with talks and workshops takes place the 24th and 25th of September.
The topics of the training sessions are quite attractive: Pentesting High Security Environments, A crash course in pentesting and securing VOIP networks, Social engineering, Assessing and Exploiting Web Applications with Samurai-WTF and Advanced Vulnerability Scanning Techniques Using Nessus. More training session will be organi
sed in the days prior to BruCON by internationally renowned trainers. Due to the registration price (and probably the content :^), the training days are more reserved to professionals in the security domain.
The schedule of the conference itself is not yet available and the Call for Papers is still open till end of April. The registration for the conference (excluding the two day training) is now possible as well and fair “early bird” prices are available until 30th of June. Only 400 places are accepted, so don’t wait too long.
If you would like to experience the event without paying, you might apply as volunteer, which is a quite hard job. BruCON is organized as a non-profit event by and for the security community. This event wouldn’t be possible without the help of volunteers.
