* CONFidence 2009 *

This year we will celebrate the 5th edition of "CONFidence". On 15-16
May, 2009, in Krakow, Poland, more than 400 IT security professionals
from industry and academia as well as researchers and developers will
gather to make this event not just a conference, but an experience.
CONFidence is the only conference of its kind in Eastern Europe, it
combines a strong programme with a unique location and atmosphere.

Bruce Schneier will give a keynote speech and talks by excellent
speakers, including Joanna Rutkowska, Alexander Kornbrust, Adrian
Pastor, Mario Heiderich, Alessio L.R. Pennasilico will follow.

The conference location was not chosen randomly. Krakow is well known
for its magical Old Town with countless bars and a crazy night-life.
CONFidence gives you the opportunity to enjoy both technical talks by
professional, well-known speakers as well as all-night partying in one
of the most fun places in Europe.
