RUXCON is on again in Sydney Australia. RUXCON is a non-profit IT
Security Conference run by members of the IT Security community. Due to
the diverse backgrounds and interests of RUXCON staff, the conference
boasts a broad range of technical and non technical topics such as
reverse engineering, cryptography, code analysis, computer forensics,
identity crime, and social engineering.

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. Activities range from the light
hearted chilli eating competition and computer security trivia quiz,
right up to the competitive Capture the Flag tournament. 

RUXCON 2006 will be held over 30th of September to the 1st of October
at the University of Technology in Sydney, $60 will cover you for two
days worth of talks and experience, making it accessible to anyone who
is genuinely interested in computer security.
