RC17 Theme
Posted on: 02.14.23

This year's theme revolves around surveillance, privacy and technology.

Surveillance, privacy, and technology are all closely interconnected topics that have become increasingly important in the modern world.

The intersection of surveillance, privacy, and technology has become increasingly complex in recent years. On the one hand, technology has made surveillance easier and more widespread, allowing for the collection and sharing of vast amounts of data. On the other hand, technology can also be used to protect privacy, through the use of encryption, privacy-focused tools, and other means of securing personal data.

As society continues to grapple with these complex issues, it is important to consider the balance between surveillance and privacy, and to ensure that technology is used in a responsible and ethical manner.

For our con-goers to have full ROOTCON experience ROOTCON 17 will be executed fully as physical conference. We are no longer offering hybrid this year. Exciting times ahead, we hope to see everyone this year! Hack-on....
