Everything about the conference, from the venue to the speakers to the schedule, is structured to facilitate collaboration and information sharing between attendees. Whether you’re an academic researcher looking to for ways to transfer your technology in to industry, a hacker who wants to present your ideas to an audience of professionals, or someone interested in learning the latest in information security, Hackademic will be a valuable investment of your time and energy.
