The Hacktivity Crew

The Hacktivity hacking conference brings together the official and alternative representatives of information security profession with all those interested in the area, in an informal, yet educational, and most of the times highly technical.

Call For Contributions/Speakers

This year we are offering two alternatives: you can either give a presentation as usual or you can give a hello workshop.


This is the business as usual. We require similar thing as in any other IT security conference CFP. We are accepting presentations from a wide spectrum of IT security topics. It is up to you to apply for a presentation which is in line with the spirit of Hacktivity. We favor presentations with demo.

Please write your slide deck in English. Your speech can be in English (favored) or Hungarian.

As a speaker you can have either 20­ minutes or 40 ­minute s lot to present your topic.

Hello workshop

We all know there is a huge difference between seeing and doing. Real knowledge grows from issuing your first command. Therefore, to help visitors start off learning we organize hello workshops. Hello workshops are short courses introducing basic/intermediate IT security skills. Previous years included topics like:

Burp Extensions
Malicious PDF analysis
Basic rootkit techniques
SQL injections
A hello workshop should meet the following requirements:

participants should acquire a definite and useful piece of knowledge;
participants bring their own equipment you should calculate with the diversity;
a workshop will not have more than 16 attendees;
it should fit into 20 plus 20 minutes (seeing plus doing) from preparation to take­aways.
one workshop will be held approx. 3 times during the two days

Here are some topics that we are especially interested in:

Vulnerabilities at unexpected territories
Exploit mitigations and their mitigations
Malware analysis inside or outside the sandbox
Blue Team techniques / operation
Big Data / Cloud / APT / any_fancy_buzzword ­ What’s the big deal? Are there any / What are the new threats?
Extraordinary stories of #FAIL
Any research which brings something brand new to the security world
These are just examples though, please feel free to submit your talk as long as it fits to the spirit of Hacktivity.
