Due to growing concerns surrounding the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus, we've decided to postpone BSides 2020 until November.
This decision does not come lightly and we've been monitoring the situation closely for the last few week. Even though our event is small the health, safety and well-being of our patrons is paramount.
We will continue working with our sponsors, partners and the community to make sure the conference will be worth the wait.
Thanks to tremendous support from the local infosec community and our sponsors in 2019, we are thrilled to announce our 2nd annual conference on
May 13th 2020. We got a lot of positive feedback from participants on the perceived quality of content and overall value for the price of admission. We have taken this feedback to heart and decided to keep quality high and prices low by sticking to the single-track, single-day format, but moving to a new, larger venue—Vulkan Arena and Pokalen in central Oslo. We invite you to join us along with more than 200 other expected participants from diverse backgrounds and experience levels to help us to continue to grow as an accessible, technical information security conference in Oslo by the community for the community.
A number of participants at the previous event said they felt the ticket price was so low that they wished they could pay more. To this end, we have offered a new ticket option this year for those who want and can afford to give a little extra support. The "Friend of BSides" option gives you an additional way to show your support beyond merely attending and participating in our post-event feedback survey (also much appreciated). We don't depend on these funds to run this year's event, but we also don't budget for a huge surplus. We are a non-profit event run 100% by volunteers, and any additional funds will give us more options and lower risk to grow and respond to feedback in 2021.
All talks will be in English to be as welcoming as possible to international guests and newcomers to Norway.
Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided throughout the event.
Please stay tuned to our website and twitter for the final speaker line-up, schedule and other important details. We will also send out email reminders as the date approaches. In the meantime, feel free to contact us if you have questions.
Refunds up to 4 week before event, minus Deltager.no fees.
Also please read our code of conduct.
See you in May!
