Static:Lightning Talks

From Camp_2015_Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Lightning Talks are concise lectures given by camp participants on a wide variety of topics!


Bring your infectious enthusiasm to an audience with a short attention span! Discuss a program, system or technique! Pitch your projects and ideas or try to rally a crew of people to your party or assembly! Whatever you bring, make it fast and fun!

Wnat to see more about how they work? Check out the Lightning Talks from the 31c3 (Day 2, Day 3, Day 4.) and the 30c3 (Day 2, Day 3, Day 4)


Lightning talk registrations are open! Use the Create Lightning Talk page and follow the instructions. There is no registration deadline, but we expect that the sessions will fill up before the camp starts.

Timeslots are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis to participants who do all of the following:

  • Create a proper Lightning Talk Page
  • Upload slides or a visual element in 16:9 format
  • Confirm their attendance by e-mailing
  • Present their material in a spirit of excellence to each other [1] [2].

If you plan on giving your talk on a specific day, submit your entry as soon as possible. Preliminary slides are okay, but remember to update them at least 24 hours before.


How long are the Lightning Talks?
So we can maximize the number of cool talks and opportunities, talks are no longer than 5 minutes.
I've never given a talk before, I don't think I can do it!
Yes you can! Many LT presenters have never spoken in front of a huge audience. This format is great for first-time speakers to get their awesome ideas out and gain comfort speaking in a safe space.
My lecture didn't get accepted, I need at least $AMT_OVER_5_MINUTES to give this talk!
The sad fact is that most lectures designed to be given in over 30 minutes by speakers accustomed to taking more than 45 minutes cannot be successfully cut down to a coherent 5 minute talk. We suggest focusing on one particular element of your talk that you can give in 5 minutes or less.
I need to connect my laptop to do this demo!
Bear in mind, you have 5 minutes to get set up, give your talk, and get off the stage. If you can give a three minute awesome demo, go for it! Specify that you need to do this in your e-mail.


Lightning talks will happen on Days 2, 3, and 4 from 16:00 (4 PM) to 18:15 (6:15 PM).

The schedule below will automagically populate once talks are accepted and scheduled.

Lightning:British Library Labs: Experiment with our digital collections
Day 2, 16:15
British Library Labs encourages people to do things with our digital collections and data - creative things, research-related things, innovative or entrepreneurial things. We have lots of data available under open license for download, and more will be available at CCC Camp. This talk will be an introduction to why the British Library wants to open up its data in this way, and what people are doing with it.

Day 2, 16:20
In Berlin werden Spätis durch immer schärfere Kontrollen daran gehindert, auch Sonntags zu öffnen. Da dies der umsatzstärkste Tag ist, haben viele mit der Existenz zu kämpfen. Doch das BerlLadÖffG lässt sich hacken: sobald Spätis Stromtankstellen werden, dürfen sie täglich rund um die Uhr öffnen. Die Voraussetzungen, was fehlt, und welche Unterstützung noch nötig ist, das stelle ich in diesem Talk vor.

Day 2, 16:35
The goal of this talk is present a way to abuse a default feature of Cisco routers. The feature mentioned is the Embedded Packet Capture (EPC), described by the Cisco: "... a powerful troubleshooting and tracing tool. The feature allows for network administrators to capture data packets flowing through, to, and from, a Cisco router." We were able to abuse this feature and build a system to collecting massive data and store them for analysis purpose. The PoC developed uses multiple Cisco routers configured with default accounts to send their data traffic (input, output or both) to our repository and finally we are able to starting the processes to transform these raw data packet files in useful information. Such as user credentials, pre-shared key keys, URLs and many other potential sensitive data can be extracted, but additional "features", like cyber attacks, are planned for the future. The subject presented by the researchers would help a simple penetration tester during a usual engagement , additionally it's possible configure a larger set of routers to collect data and build a huge database, hack the planet style.

Lightning:The Internet in Iran
Day 3, 16:40
Iran is a country of contrasts. Much like the USA, the politics of its people range from progressive to ultra conservative. Its conservative government works hard to regulate the media in Iran, and a big part of that is controlling (and censoring) Internet access. In this short talk I will share my experience using the Internet in Iran in April 2015.

Lightning:Crypto Reloaded: rebranding the Dark Web, spreading art & infosec around the world
Day 4, 16:05
Two interventions to resolve the paradox of discretionary power in the age of mass surveillance are proposed. The paradox is that on one hand, discretion can be dangerous in the context of centralized power—but at the same time, trust in the discretionary power of our fellow hacktivists underpins the workings decentralized spaces and action that can help empower otherwise disempowered people. The first intervention is a rebranding of the subset of those decentralized spaces and action structures formerly known as the Dark Web—now the EDTR (expressing, dissenting, teaching, resisting) web—to make it more sustainable, safe, and simple to talk about. The second intervention is a reproducible art and info kit designed to produce trust spirals with art supplies and positive psychology exercises, enhance information security by propagating crypto, and transmit free books around the world. 

Tech community, sit down. Well ok, you’re already sitting down, or maybe the grass is wet or whatever and you don’t want to, but that’s not the point.

We need to talk.

Lightning:Eaternity: Hacking against Climate Change!?
Day 4, 16:55
With ⅓ of our greenhouse gas emission originating from our food consumption, food does matter to our planet as it is important to our daily routine. If we continue our trends, it is predictable when we will run out of ressources and cause our climate to change. By enabling smart decisions, food takes the biggest share of things we can do -- one-by-one -- to cut down emissions by 1 ton per person and year. And this also by enjoying a delicious, affordable and healthy cuisine. Everyone can cook! Let’s make a difference.
