    The conference will be held at the University Club of Pittsburgh. They
    have been very good to work with, and have demonstrated a much more

    free parking, in-room coffee, continental breakfast, dining room, and

    I can assure you that the University Club is not used to having large
    numbers of computer security enthusiasts roaming their hotel. "The
    premises also feature a computer for internet use," does not mean that
    it must be systematically taken apart.
    The hotel is holding a limited number of rooms at a discounted rate;
    when you call them, let them know you are attending SummerCon to
    receive the discount. Act fast, rooms are limited!
    There are several other hotels located within walking distance of the
    University Club.

    About this year's conference:
    SummerCon 2003 will be held at the University Club of Pittsburgh, June
    6-8. The University Club is just two walking minutes from the offices
    of CERT, and situated conveniently between the University of
    Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon. Pittsburgh offers free wireless access
    at many coffee shops, cheap beer, and fighting robots. While
    Pittsburgh isnít as exotic as some of our previous venues, it offers
    many quality attractions at good prices. And cheap airfare, too.
    It has always been our contention that cons are for socializing.
    "Seekret Hacker InPh0" is never really discussed except in private
    circles, so the only way anyone is going to get any is to meet new
    people and take the initiative to start interesting conversations.
    Because of this, the formal speaking portion of SummerCon will be held
    on one day, June 7th, not two or three, leaving plenty of time for
    people to explore the city, compare hacking techniques, or go trashing
    and clubbing with their heretofore unseen online companions.
    If you want to commit crimes, if you are interested in pulling fire
    alarms or breaking things, don't come to this con. We aren't here for
    that, and you shouldn't be either. If you want to learn new things,
    meet new people, and drink a beer or twelve, this con is for you.
    For more information, online registration, and past conference
    information, go to www.summercon.org. Questions can be directed to
    infoat_private We look forward to seeing you in June.
    SummerCon is the oldest of the annual computer security conferences.
    Its origins are well tied to the early years of Phrack Magazine, a
    mainstay of the hacker community. More information about SummerCon
    2003 is available at www.summercon.org. Members of the media wishing
    to find out more about SummerCon should send e-mail to
