SuriCon2024: CALL FOR TALKS and MORE: 10th SuriCon2024 (Madrid) November 13-15

Hello Past - and New! - SuriCon Attendees,

We hope you’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with Suricata and are as excited as we are for the upcoming SuriCon 2024. This year, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re returning to an in-person format, hosting the conference in the vibrant city of Madrid, Spain, from November 13-15, 2024. It’s a significant milestone for us - the 10th anniversary of SuriCon, a concept we never imagined would grow so profoundly when we started.

As we’re planning early to ensure a seamless and enriching experience, we encourage you to start thinking about how you can contribute to this year’s event. Madrid offers a perfect backdrop for reigniting our collaborative spirit, sharing insights, and diving deep into the technical aspects of Suricata’s development and application.

Call for Talks - Technical Insights and Innovations: We’re seeking submissions that highlight new use cases, development insights, and innovative applications of Suricata. Whether it’s a deep dive into code optimizations, novel security approaches, or case studies of Suricata in action, your expertise can inspire and elevate the knowledge base of our community. This is your platform to showcase technical achievements, share challenges overcome, and spark discussions that drive Suricata’s evolution.

Exclusive Training Sessions and Community Engagement: In addition to the main conference, we’ll be offering our specialized Threat Hunting and Advanced Suricata training sessions on Monday (11/11) and Tuesday (11/12). These are unique opportunities for hands-on learning and skill enhancement, exclusively available to SuriCon attendees at a discounted rate. It’s a chance not only to advance your expertise but also to engage with the OISF developers and leading experts in our field. SuriCon attendees receive a 20% discount - REGISTER.

A Call to Support Open Source Security: SuriCon’s success and the continuous development of Suricata rely on the support of our community and sponsors. This year, we aim to direct all OISF funding towards Suricata’s ongoing development, emphasizing the importance of sponsorships. By supporting SuriCon, you’re not only contributing to the event’s success but also to the sustainability and advancement of an essential open-source security tool.

Why Madrid? Choosing Madrid for our 10th SuriCon is no coincidence. It’s a city that combines rich history with modern vibrancy, offering an ideal setting for both technical discussions and networking. After a year of virtual gatherings, the prospect of meeting in person to celebrate this milestone and collaborate directly is something we all look forward to with great anticipation.

We’re all here because we believe in the power of open source, Suricata, and the incredible work we can do together. SuriCon 2024 is a testament to our collective spirit and determination. Whether you’re coming to share knowledge, learn, support, or just have a good time, your presence is what will make this event special.

So, let’s do this. Let’s make SuriCon 2024 the best one yet. Can’t wait to see you all in Madrid!
