44CON London is the UK’s largest combined annual Security Conference and Training event. The conference will be held at the ILEC Conference Centre in London and run for two full days on 10th/11th September 2015, with an evening-only session on the 9th. We will have a fully dedicated conference facility, including secure wi-fi with high bandwidth Internet access, catering, private bar and daily Gin O’Clock break.

44CON London will comprise of two main presentation tracks, two workshop tracks and a mixed presentation/workshop track over the two full days covering Technical topics. The Hidden track is run under the Chatham House Rule and we’re not going to tell you about that.

Technical and Infosec Professional presentations & workshops will be accepted. Presentation will be 45 minutes long with 5 minutes for Q&A. Workshops are either 60 or 120 minutes in length including setup/breakdown time.

  • A presentation on the main tracks is in front of a seated audience.
  • A presentation on the Mixed/Workshop track can be more interactive/informal and is with a smaller audience.
  • A Workshop is like a mini training course - e.g. take a single executable and show a walkthrough on IDA Pro. Follow through a scenario based workshop e.g an incident response from a management and technical view with the audience etc.

This is NOT a call for training. Training takes place the 7th/8th/9th/14th/15th September and details of the 2015 training courses are due to be announced shortly.
