Hack.lu 2015 Call for Papers, Presentations and Workshops

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education. Mark Twain

The convention will be held in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg in October (20-22.10.2015). The most significant new discoveries about computer network attacks and defenses, commercial security solutions, and pragmatic real world security experience will be presented in a three days series of informative tutorials.
