In addition to the lecture tracks, we have a few other interesting things going on at InfoSec Southwest that you may enjoy:

Open-forum Turbo-talks at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz

During our two-hour lunch breaks on both days of the conference, InfoSec Southwest holds a completely open forum for lightning and turbo talks that is not constrained by a speaker selection process, mirroring our wildly successful local AHA! hacker meeting format. This forum is open to anyone attending the conference to attend and/or to speak on any topic they wish in a first-come, first-speak order. As such, we invite everyone to attend and participate. Those who come and speak during the open forum will receive a complimentary drink ticket and speaker badge.

The Alamo Drafthouse is an Austin movie-going staple experience, and we've taken over one of the theaters in their downtown Ritz location for our open forum lunches. The Alamo will have their full kitchen and bar open so we hope you'll consider spending some or all of your lunch break with us at the Alamo.

Saturday Night Party

Get Your Blink On!
Palm Door on 6th
508 E 6th Street
Austin, TX 78701

Party On Saturday night InfoSec Southwest, in conjunction with our sponsors, will host the official conference party. Brought to you by the team that brought you the No More Cheap Bugs, ExploitHub, and LOL Bitcoin parties during the 2011, 2012, and 2013 BlackHat and DEFCON conferences, our party is not just another stuffy conference party. Attendees will get a feel for some of the awesome Austin nightlife.

Demolition Derby Capture the Flag

Welcome to our own take on Capture the Flag. In the Demolition Derby CTF, nearly everything goes. The competition network will also be crowdsourced, so we can't tell you beforehand exactly what to expect. In short, this competition will be complete CHAOS.

Mini-Crack Me If You Can

KoreLogic will be holding a mini Crack Me If You Can competition, similar to the one they hold at DEFCON each year. Be sure to pick up the information at the registration desk, and the first one to break the challenge wins a $100 Amazon gift card!

Lockpick Village

Lockpick Village

The Longhorn Lockpick Club from the University of Texas will be providing a Lockpick Village in our chill area. Come practice your locksport, mingle with other lockthusiests, and attend mini-lectures on various aspects of lockpicking.

Closing Ceremonies Raffle

During closing ceremonies we'll be raffling off a number of items graciously donated by our sponsors.
