Tech4Africa conference 2010

Posted on May 28, 2010

I just came across the website and speaker lineup for Tech4Africa. TECH4AFRICA is a web & emerging technology conference, bringing global perspective to the African context. It looks as though it will be a really great conference.

The schedule and speaker lineup are on the website.

The conference takes place in Johannesburg on the 12th and 13th August 2010 at The Forum in Bryanston, Johannesburg. Directions, map etc are available on the website.

The website is a great example of how to promote a conference using new media. Wonderful to see a tech conference really using the tech available.

ZaCon II Call For Papers

Posted on May 28, 2010

Date : 9 October 2010.
Location : University of Joburg. Joburg.
Cost : The goal is to hit breakeven on the costs,  so an entry fee (if charged) will be low.

Many other conferences exist to cater either to the strictly Academic or Professional individual. We want a simple community based forum  that is completely  free of  corporate affiliation (or shilling). The intention behind this  is that the passion for the field or of sharing knowledge should  be  the primary motivation  of attending or speaking at this conference.

We aim to fulfill these objectives:
* Provide a platform for publication of infosec research
* Showcase free locally-developed infosec tools
* Support  the interaction of industry, academia and  the interested public
* Encourage discussion on infosec / hackery / sec-related-geekery at large
* Build the ZA infosec community
* Provide a platform to up-n-coming talent

Closing date for submissions is 20 August 2010.

* Abstracts: abstracts AT zacon org za
