----[ Returning 28-29 FEB 2024!

AvengerCon, the 780th Military Intelligence (MI) Brigade’s homegrown hacker con, will return in early 2024!

This year’s event features two major changes from previous events – a new location and new partner organizations for the event!

AvengerCon VIII is scheduled for 28 and 29 February 2024 at the Georgia Cyber Innovation & Training Center (Georgia Cyber Center) in Augusta, Georgia!

Like the past two AvengerCons, AvengerCon VIII will be a hybrid in-person and remote event. AvengerCon VIII’s in-person activities will be hosted at the Georgia Cyber Innovation & Training Center. Attendees who are unable to travel to Augusta for the event will still be able to participate remotely.

We are also excited to announce that AvengerCon has gained two new partners for hosting this year's event: the Army Cyber Institute (ACI) and the Army Cyber Command Technology and Innovation Center (ArCTIC)! Support from ACI and ArCTIC enabled us to (finally) lock in a date and location for AvengerCon VIII and move forward with event planning. We are very grateful for ACI and ArCTIC's assistance!

AvengerCon features presentations, hacker villages, training workshops, and other content provided by motivated members of the Avengercon community!

Stay tuned for more announcements about AvengerCon VIII and we hope to see you there!

----[ Call for Volunteers!

AvengerCon VIII, the 780th Military Intelligence (MI) Brigade’s homegrown hacker con, is currently scheduled as a hybrid in-person and remote event on 28 and 29 February 2024 in Augusta, Georgia, and we’re looking for volunteers to host this year’s event!

Every year, AvengerCon is organized and led by a group of motivated volunteers from the 780th Military Intelligence Brigade and the unit’s partners across the U.S. Army Cyber Command, U.S. Cyber Command, the Department of Defense, academia, and private industry I would like to extend an invitation to you to join our team and make this year’s AvengerCon the best yet!

There are many ways to support the event. Everyone is welcome to contribute regardless of rank, position, prior experience, or physical location.

To best support the new event location at the Georgia Cyber Center, we are especially looking for volunteers who are local to Augusta, GA and are willing to help us plan and execute the in-person portions of the event!

Some of the ways to contribute as an event volunteer include: - Planning / organizing the core features of the event (presentations, villages, workshops, etc.) - Art and design - Event website and online infrastructure management - Event registration - Communications and advertisement - CTFs - Keynote speaker and panel discussion coordination - Hosting an AvengerCon watch party or in-person satellite at your location - Whatever other awesome ideas you want to make a reality for the event this year!

More info about volunteering and contributing is available starting on page 4 of the AvengerCon VI edition of 780th MI BDE’s BYTE Magazine (https://www.dvidshub.net/publication/issues/63429)!

If you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to either myself (neil.a.milchak.mil@army.mil) and CPT Jacob Heybey (jacob.o.heybey.mil@army.mil)!

If you are looking to contribute content (giving a presentation, instructing a workshop, running a village), please hold your formal submissions for now while we prepare to open the calls for presentations, workshops and villages. We tentatively expect to open the CFP in late November 2023!
