Damage or destruction of hotel property will not be tolerated. No crashing wedding parties at the hotel. Hotel Information: 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 cooperative spirit than last year's hotel in Washington D.C. They even have 802.11b access available to the public!

"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. Holiday Inn Oakland 100 Lytton Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15213 412-682-6200 Wyndham Garden Hotel University Place 3454 Forbes Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15213 412-683-2040 Hampton Inn University Center 3315 Hamlet Street Pittsburgh, PA 15213 412-681-1000 Residence Inn 3896 Bigelow Blvd. Pittsburgh, PA 15213 412-621-2200 Sunnyledge Hotel & Restaurant 5124 5th Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15232 412-683-5014 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.
