The ekoparty is characterized by its conferences and relaxed atmosphere. For this reason, we provide to the attendees the GetTogether at the end of the first day, and the AfterCon Party's closure at the end of the week.

Attitude. The Argentine hackers, mostly young men, in recent years have abandoned their "underground" attitude and replaced it by an "activism without borders" [...]

The best known of the "under world" is the ekoparty, which was held recently in Buenos Aires and attended by hackers recognized in six countries in the region.

Heads of corporative security and systems students are here, in ekoparty. And they argue about how to access external systems and how to defend them from possible attacks. There are also some talks. [...]

What unites the audience is the intention to share knowledge on the latest vulnerabilities of all kinds of systems, from operatives for PC and even game consoles.

The very good organization by its members did they realize that they really knew how to make an international conference with great effort and enthusiasm. An event like this makes that many eyes are placed in Argentina and the ekoparty takes international importance to remain at the level of other security conferences...

An event of international level with foreign and local speakers, guests from Latin America and all around the world. The topics to be treated, discussions and direct participation of the public are chosen with excellence. This is the profile of a different computer security conference, where the commercial is aside and finally technology, information, and fun are the protagonists.
