0. About HITCON 2020

Hacks in Taiwan (HITCON) is a technique-oriented security conference held annually in Taiwan, targeting the information security community. In this year, we decided to combine HITCON CMT and HITCON Pacific into HITCON 2020. Introduce the most comprehensive and advanced technique research for the security community and enterprise.

HITCON’S speakers and participators come from all over the world. As the largest security technique conference, many hacker or student security communities in Taiwan participate in HITCON CMT. These make HITCON CMT the best way to establish network in Taiwan community.

Considering the situation of COVID-19, we would like to keep every our speaker’s healthy and safe. Therefore HITCON 2020 will be organized online.
