Breaking News: RC Recovery Mode
Posted on: 08.03.20

One of the challenges mentioned in my previous post was THE OUTBREAK. Since March 26, we are closely monitoring the Covid19 pandemic situation both locally and internationally, after the ECQ (Enhanced Community Quarantine) has been lifted the number of cases in the Philippines shoots-up, this could be an early warning that we will be going back to ECQ anytime or in between ROOTCON 14 planning.

At this time everything is just so uncertain, it makes planning very difficult. Travel restriction could vary from one country to another, hotels and bars are still closed or only caters a specific number of people. Furthermore we don't want to risk the health safety of our crew, speakers, sponsors, and attendees.

Like most other hacking conferences, ROOTCON 14 will be entering Recovery Mode, you may call it a Limited Edition as this is the first time in the history of ROOTCON that we will be hosting the full event virtually. We are looking forward to seeing everyone.

Stay tuned for more ROOTCON Recovery Mode announcements. In the mean time Call for Papers and Call For Sponsors are still on-going.

All the best,
