*** ABOUT ******************************
THOTCON (pronounced \ˈthȯt\ and taken from THree - One - Two) is a small 
venue hacking conference based in Chicago IL, USA. This is a non-profit, 
non-commercial event looking to provide the best conference possible on 
a very limited budget.

This is the 3rd year for THOTCON. Last year was a sold out event with 
world-class speakers and talks.

This year we'll be expanding the attendance to 500 and 20 talks.

*** WHEN / WHERE ***********************
The conference will be held in Chicago, IL USA on 04.27.12.

It will be held at a location only to be disclosed to attendees and 
speakers during the week before the event. It WILL be in the City of 
Chicago and close to a CTA train stop, accessible by bus, cab, and even 
a rickshaw (we have them in Chicago).

*** FORMAT *****************************
The event will be a single track.

There will be ten (10) 50-minute talks and ten (10) 25-minute turbo 
talks selected.

Topics we are interested in: retro computing, forensics, robotics, 
physical security, 0days, application hacking, wireless, malware 
development/research, hackerspaces, The Muppets, Penguins, zombies, 
attack detection, the number 7, online game hacking, consumer device 
hacking, beer, and bananas [foster].

This year, based upon past attendee feedback, the selection committee 
will be prioritizing technical talks over non-technical talks.

*** SPEAKER PERKS **********************
Speakers will be given free admission to the conference as well as one 
(1) free attendee badge (to bring a guest). In addition, 50-minute
