Hack In The Box (HITB) is a series of network security and hacking conferences held annually around the world, with cutting-edge hardcore technical talks delivered by some of the most respected names in the cyber security industry. It’s among the foremost platforms for the discussion and dissemination of next generation cyber computer security issues.
HITB+CyberWeek goes beyond the cutting edge talks and trainings for security professionals that you’ve come to expect from HITB. We will be disseminating the latest knowledge, ideas and techniques amongst security professionals and also developing specific content and challenges for the wider student population during a week-long gathering in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Speakers are selected based on a Call for Papers process. You can register for free and submit your paper through the website. Our list of panelists will review and approve your paper based on our guidelines. We will let you know once your paper is approved and help you with travel and accommodation.
