The Campus Party Europe 2010 (http://www.campus-party.eu) will take place on Madrid, April 14-18, 2010, during the Spanish Presidence of the European Union. One of the tracks in the event is the Network Security Area (http://www.campus-party.eu/NetworkSecurity.html), which includes a Security or Hacking Challenge, apart from other security related lectures from renowned speakers. The organizers are selecting two people for each member country of the European Union to participate on this challenge based on their enthusiasm, talent, and technical skills; travel and accommodation are fully covered .
If you are an ISC reader that were born in any EU country and want to participate and represent your country, hurry up, and send your submission! The official deadline is January 31, 2010, although there is a chance it can be slightly extended a few days. It seems the challenge will cover multiple infosec areas, such as reverse engineering, crypto, web-app security, network security, etc.
More information about the official announcement, including where to send your submission, available at http://seclists.org/bugtraq/2009/Dec/257.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend as I will be teaching the SANS "Security 542: Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking" track on Dubai, SANS UAE 2010, April 17-22.
