June 2-4 1995 @ the Downtown Clarion Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia
This is the official announcement and open invitation to the 1995
incarnation of Summercon. In the past, Summercon was an invite-only
hacker gathering held annually in St. Louis, Missouri. Starting
with this incarnation, Summercon is open to any and all interested
parties: Hackers, Phreaks, Pirates, Virus Writers, System Administrators,
Law Enforcement Officials, Neo-Hippies, Secret Agents, Teachers,
Disgruntled Employees, Telco Flunkies, Journalists, New Yorkers,
Programmers, Conspiracy Nuts, Musicians and Nudists.
The Clarion Hotel is located in downtown Atlanta, 9 miles from
Hartsfield International Airport and just a few blocks from the
Peachtree Center MARTA Station.
Considering the exorbitant expenses involved with attending other
conferences of this type, Rooms at Summercon are reduced to
$65 per night for Single or Double Occupancy
The Clarion Hotel Downtown, Courtland at 70 Houston St., NE,
Atlanta, GA 30303
(404) 659-2660 or (800) 241-3828 (404) 524-5390 (fax)
No one likes to pay a hundred dollars a night. We don't expect you
to have to. Spend your money on room service, drinks in the hotel bar,
or on k-rad hacker t-shirts. Remember: Mention that you are attending
Summercon in order to receive the discount.
75/85 Southbound - Exit 97 (Courtland). Go 3 blocks south on Courtland
then turn left on Houston (John Wesley Dobbs Ave.)
20 East - Exit 75/85 North at International. Turn Left on Courtland at
Houston Ave. NE. (aka. John Wesley Dobbs Ave. NE.)
20 West - Exit 75/85 North at International. One block to Courtland
and right at Houston Ave. NE. (John Wesley Dobbs Ave. NE.)
Atlanta Airport Shuttle - The Express Bus that leaves from Atlanta's
International Airport will drop you off at many hotels in the downtown
area, including the Clarion. The shuttle should be no more than 12
dollars. Fares may be paid at the Airport Shuttle in the Ground
Transportation area of the Airport Terminal.
MARTA - The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), is a
convenient and inexpensive way to negotiate most of the Atlanta area.
Take the MARTA train from the Airport to the Peach Tree Center Station.
Walk three blocks down Houston to the intersection of Houston and
Courtland. The MARTA fare will be roughly 2 dollars.
Taxis - The average cab fare from Atlanta's Airport to the downtown area
is roughly 30 dollars.
It has always been our contention that cons are for socializing.
"Seekret Hacker InPh0" is never really discussed except in private
circles, so the only way anyone is going to get any is to meet new people
and take the initiative to start interesting conversations.
Because of this, the formal speaking portion of Summercon will be
held on one day, not two or three, leaving plenty of time for people
to explore the city, compare hacking techniques, or go trashing and
clubbing with their heretofore unseen online companions.
The "Conference" will be held on June 3rd from roughly 11:00 am until
6:00 pm with a 1 hour lunch break from 1:00 to 2:00.
NO VIDEO TAPING WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE CONFERENCE ROOM. Audio Taping
and still photography will be permitted.
CURRENT LIST OF SPEAKERS:
Robert Steele - Ex-Intelligence Agent, Founder and CEO of Open Source
Solutions (a private sector intelligence firm)

to culminate in an international incident.
(Other Speakers May Be Added - Interested parties may contact scon () fc net)
Since other cons of this type have been charging from 25 to 40 dollars
entry fees, we are only charging 10 dollars. Yes, that's correct,
TEN (10) dollars in US currency. Money is far too scarce among the
hacker community to fleece everyone for money they will probably need
to eat with or pay for their hotel rooms.
WHAT TO DO IN ATLANTA:
To attempt to make everyone's stay in Atlanta more exciting, we are
contacting local establishments to arrange for special discounts and/or
price reductions for Summercon attendees. Information will be handed
out regarding these arrangements at the conference.
Atlanta is a happening town.
