12th USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies

August 13–14, 2018
Baltimore, MD, USA
Co-located with

Paper submissions are due on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.

Please join us in Baltimore for the 12th USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies. WOOT presents a broad picture of offense and its contributions. Offensive security today is a large-scale operation managed by organized, capitalized actors, and software used by millions is built by startups less than a year old. In the field’s infancy, offensive security research was conducted separately by industry, independent hackers, or in academia, and collaboration between these groups could be difficult.

Since 2007, WOOT has brought these communities together to share, explore, and produce high-quality, peer-reviewed work discussing tools and techniques for attack.

Interested in participating? Registration is now open, and you can submit papers through May 30, 2018. The program will be available by early July.


Early Bird Registration Deadline: Monday, July 23, 2018
