.: [ ABOUT ]

  Rooted CON is a Security Congress to be held in Madrid (Spain) on
March 2010. Our goal is to promote security by offering highly technical
talks with a practical approach (interesant mix of theory / demos) and
neutrality (although we want businesses/enterprises to participate in the
congress, they should prioritize the technical and objective approach).

  We also want people to participate and enjoy... And even come back home
with a prize! Therefore, we will hold various events (apart from talks),
one of the most important of them being the CTF ("Capture the flag")
contest, with substantial cash prizes and been designed by none other
than one of the "Sexy Pandas" (finalist team in the traditional "Defcon"

  And of course if you are brave enough you will also have fun by living
the beautiful nights of Madrid...

.: [ FORMAT ]

  We would like to receive two kind of proposals:
- fast talks. Duration: 20'.
- normal talks. Duration: 50'.

  If you have a crazy/interesting and fresh idea that could be summarized
in fewer time, please don't hesitate and submit a fast talk. If your idea
is even crazier and need more time to be explained in depth, use the
second one: normal talk.

  We are only accepting submissions in Spanish and English language. We
will do our best to have simultaneous translation in the conference room
but we cannot promise it since it will depend on budget and sponsors.
