Security is BroCon
BroCon ’17 offers the Bro community a chance to meet face-to-face, share new ideas, and better understand and secure our networks. The conference is composed of presentations from members of the community and the Bro Development team.
BroCon ’17 will occur on Tuesday morning, September 12th — Thursday at noon, September 14th, at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications in Urbana, Illinois (map). Each morning the conference will begin with breakfast at 8:00am at NCSA. Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s agendas end at 5:00pm with a welcome event planned Tuesday night. Thursday’s agenda is shortened to noon to give remote attendees a head start on traveling home.

Plan on limiting your talk to 30-35 minutes with an additional 10 minutes for questions/comments.

There are two regional airports near Urbana-Champaign: Willard Airport (CMI) and Central Illinois Regional Airport (BMI) in Bloomington. The Bloomington airport has more flight options but is a 45-minute drive west of Champaign. For those who prefer to drive from Chicago or Indianapolis the drive is approximately two-and-a-half hours from either city.
Paid parking is available in the B4 lot directly north of NCSA (on University Ave, enter the lot on Matthews or Goodwin Ave). Be sure to park at a metered spot. Do not park in the un-metered spots, those are rental spots for students and staff. NCSA and The BroCon Events Team are not responsible for parking violations. Registration to BroCon does not include free parking.
BroCon ’17 is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.
