About Kernelcon
In 2017, local collectives of information security professionals gathered together to start sharing knowledge and experiences here in Omaha. Many beers were had and slides discussed before culminating in a mission to gather knowledge seekers from across the Midwest to propagate their techniques and mastery.

Enter Kernelcon.

We welcome both seasoned professionals and novice beginners to network, share their wisdom, and learn from one another during our two days of affordable Cornhusker camaraderie. Laughs will be had and popcorn eaten at this intimate and enriching event. Our organizers are driven to provide both a new generation with the experiences that inspired us to love Infosec and bolster our community with a strong network of professionals. We are made stronger together.

Suggested topic areas
Kernelcon submissions should focus on topics that are of interest to the security and hacking communities. The list below is meant as a guideline, not an exhaustive list.

-Hacking of Software/Hardware
-Incident Response
-Operational Security
-Computing Hardware Security, Repurposing, Designing/Building
-Technology Policy and Politics (yep, we're willing to go there)
-Security Education
-Security and Hacking Capture-the-Flag Topics
-Security Automation
-Digital Forensics
-Bug Bounties
-Secure Development Practices / DevSecOps / SecDevOps
-Security Aspects of Cloud Computing
-Practical Security
-Machine Learning (securing, and using for security)
-War Stories, Histories, Scientific Advancement, Trade, etc. of Kernels
-Security Metrics (Inform Risk Analysis, Identify Priorities, Measure Progress, etc)
-Risk Management
-BeyondCorp / Zerotrust models in practice
-Privacy and Anonymity
-Identity & Access Management
-Focused Security Research (Visualization, IoT, Vehicles, Toys, Web apps, etc)

If your talk doesn't fit precisely into one of these areas, but you still think is a good fit, please submit it for consideration! The suggested topics are meant only to provide some direction, not as a strict pedantic gate through which all submissions must pass.

Conference format
Kernelcon has two, concurrent main tracks, and talks should fit into a 60 or 20 minute timeslot (meaning a 15 or 50 minute presentation is expected). As one might expect, presenters will be positioned at the front of a hotel conference area, and will present using typical conference equipment.
