Update! This event has been canceled!
Established in 2010 under the original name hashdays, Area41 is Switzerland’s most well-known technical information security conference. Every two years, international speakers present cutting-edge research from a variety of fields, ranging from software vulnerabilities and malware research to threat hunting and offensive security practices.
Area41 attracts a diverse crowd of information security professionals, technical managers, as well as students and enthusiasts interested in the field.
Area41 actively curates a lineup consisting of international speakers as well as promising rising stars.
Our talk selection focuses on content first. Our speakers, while compensated for their travel expenses, choose to share their knowledge without further compensation.
Small by Choice
Since the conference’s first sold-out event in 2016, we have chosen to cap Area41 at 400 attendees maximum to ensure that the atmosphere and the ability to connect with other attendees and speakers alike remain intact. Get your tickets early or you might end up on the waitlist.
Since 2010, Area41 is a community-driven, non-profit event by the Swiss DEF CON group chapter DC4131. It is made possible by the countless hours of volunteers and the sponsors believing in our platform to make great technical content available to everyone.
