  • WOOT '24: 18th USENIX WOOT Conference on Offensive Technologies
    August 12, 2024August 13, 2024, Philadelphia, PA, United States

    Practitioner track paper submissions due: March 6, 2024 - 3:59 am

    The USENIX WOOT Conference brings together both academics and practitioners in the field of offensive security research. Occurring annually since 2007, when it was founded as the Workshop On Offensive Technologies, WOOT has become the top venue for collaboration between academia, independent hackers, and industry participants on offensive research. As offensive security has changed over the years to become a large-scale operation managed by well-capitalized actors, WOOT has consistently attracted a range of high-quality, peer-reviewed work from academia and industry on novel attacks, state-of-the-art tools, and offensive techniques. In 2024, WOOT becomes the USENIX WOOT Conference On Offensive Technologies with formal proceedings.

    WOOT '24 welcomes submissions from academia, independent researchers, students, hackers, and industry. Two different submission tracks are available—an "academic" track for those intending to submit complete formal academic papers and a "practitioner" track for researchers who may be less familiar with academic procedures and may desire assistance writing a paper or just additional feedback and reviews, while believing that the community would benefit from their research being published in the more formal and complete form of a short paper.
