We love THOTCON and it is on our list of the top must-attend cybersecurity conferences. It started about 10 years ago by a group of Chicago hackers who wants a low-cost conference. If you love hacking, this is a place to be.

THOTCON (pronounced \ˈthȯt\ and taken from THree – One – Two) is a hacking conference that is based in Chicago Illinois, United States. This is a non-commercial, non-profit, event looking to give the best conference possible on a very limited budget.
The idea started in late 2009 by a group of Chicago hackers who wanted to start a local low-cost conference.
Since Chicago has a great hacking and security scene in small pockets, the group wanted to bring everyone together at a real conference where travel and spending a ton of money is not needed.
Proceeds from the event are applied toward the next year’s conference with the hope to be able to put on a better conference each year.
THOTCON 0xB (2020) will be held in Chicago on May 8 – 9, 2020. The event is considered as one of the attended conference and proof of that is the event tickets are sold in less than 3 days in 2018 so expect the tickets to sell out just as fast this year.
It will be held at a location only to be disclosed to participants and speakers during the week before the event.
THOTCON is produced by THOTCON Infinity NFP, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
