REcon is a computer security conference with a focus on reverse
engineering and advanced exploitation techniques.  It is held annually
in Montreal, Canada.

The conference offers a single track of presentations over the span
of three days along with technical training sessions held before
the presentation dates.  Technical training varies in length between
two and four days.


REcon 2023 is almost upon us.  As with years past, it will offer a
great lineup of trainings, talks from some of the top reversers in the
world, and a lot of fun.

Some guidelines for talks are:

 - 30 or 60 minute presentations 

 - We are open to proposals for workshops that would occur alongside talks. 
   REcon have a dedicated area for workshop and 
   village, there will be a Software and a hardware village,       
   the Hardware village will have a electronic lab.                    
   We are planning to bring soldering equipment, BGA Station,  	 
   microscope, Oscilloscope, Spectrum Analyser, Protocol Analyser,     
   Bench Power supply, reflow oven, 3D Printer, ... Note that the      
   talks will be broadcasted in the workshops area so you won't miss   
   anything.       
 
 - There will be time for five to ten minute informal lightning talks
   during the REcon party
