An international conference on practical cybersecurity that brings together security specialists, developers, engineers, researchers, lecturers, and students from dozens of countries.
Participants share their knowledge and experience. The conference focuses only on technical content dedicated to current industry trends.
There are also a whole lot of activities to have fun and relax. You can even get a tattoo if you decide to capture the event in eternity.
We will be happy to see you on August 25–26 at the LOFT HALL venue, 26 Leninskaya Sloboda St., Bld. 11, Moscow, Russia.
OFFZONE is primarily designed for techies who want to level up their knowledge, exchange experiences, and talk to legendary experts in an informal setting.
The 2019 event featured presentations by more than 60 speakers from 8 countries, a CTF quest, and a ton of games. No suits, no business—only plain hardcore research.
In 2020 and 2021, the conference had to be canceled because of the pandemic, but this year we are back with more energy and ideas.
The OFFZONE chronicles are available in the Archive.
The agenda will be posted a couple of weeks after the paper review date, which is July 10.
Yes, but not all of them. Some speakers ask not to record their presentations as they contain sensitive information.

Note that a partner status does not automatically entitle you to deliver a talk.
If a paper is approved for the agenda, the speaker will be notified by email and will need to confirm participation within 24 hours. Of course, we will try to contact you if we don’t receive your confirmation in time, but please write back to us quickly. Otherwise, we may have to cancel your presentation 😞
