What is RUXCON?

Ruxcon is a computer security conference that is well regarded throughout Australia and the rest of the world. The conference aspires to bring together the best and the brightest security talent within the Aus-Pacific region, through live presentations, activities, and demonstrations.

The Ruxcon organisers feel that a security conference should be accessible to all levels of the security industry. We are staffed by passionate volunteers who contribute their time, effort, and resources to assure the smooth and professional running of the conference, keeping it at a low and affordable price for attendees. We firmly believe that the technical calibre of our guest speakers is superior to those at any other security conference in Australia.

Ruxcon is held over two days in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, and is held at UTS in Sydney, Australia. The conference allows attendees to enjoy themselves, socialise with others, and expand their knowledge on security.

Ruxcon presentations run for one hour, cover a diverse range of topics, and are presented by credible local and international speakers. Attendees have the opportunity to meet new people, either socially during the lunch or drink breaks, or during the many activities and competitions held over the weekend. These competitions will allow novices to improve their basic skills, while experts can test their skills against their peers, with everyone having the opportunity of winning prizes and having some fun.
