ZeekWeek 2021 (formerly BroCon) will be held 13-15 October at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center in Austin, Texas – provided it is safe to meet in person. 

Attendees will be able to “Zeek-out” on workshops, training, community presentations – and  meet event sponsors, core developers, other “Zeekers” and more. 

Thanks for your feedback after our virtual ZeekWeek last year! Based on your input, we will continue to have separate sessions dedicated to training, topics for incident responders / threat hunters, and topics relevant to developers. In-person seating will be limited, and offered on a first come, first serve basis.  Yes, we will offer remote participation as well. 

We’ll announce more details over time, but here are some things to expect from each day: 

Day 1: Zeek related training sessions: a total of six sessions (four hours each), four of which will be available as part of the sponsorship prospectus.

(Watch for the sponsorship announcement, as there will only be four slots available.)

Day 2 and 3: Keynote and two tracks: Track 1 is for incident responders and threat hunters ( 20 min presentations); Track 2 is for developers. 

(Watch for the call for papers, for more details on submissions).

Registration, call for participation, and sponsorship opportunities will open soon, so check back often.
