Rapid7 is thrilled to announce that the 2nd annual VeloCON virtual summit will be held this September 13, 2023, with times oriented to the continental USA time zones. Once again, the conference will be online and completely free!

VeloCON is a one-day event focused on the Velociraptor community. It’s a place to share experiences in using and developing Velociraptor to address the needs of the wider DFIR community and an opportunity to take a look ahead at the future of our platform.

This year’s event calls for even more of the stimulating and informative content that made last year’s VeloCON so much fun. Don’t miss your chance at being a part of this year’s marquee event of the open-source DFIR calendar.

The call for presentations closes Monday, July 17, 2023 (see details below).

Last year’s event was a tremendous success, with over 500 unique participants enjoying our lineup of fascinating discussions, tech talks and the opportunity to get to know real members of our own community.

Call for presentations (CFP)

VeloCON invites contributions in the form of a 30-45 minute presentation. We require a brief proposal (~500 words; not a paper). These proposals undergo a review process to select presentations of maximum interest to VeloCON attendees and the wider Velociraptor community and to filter out sales pitches.

VeloCON focuses on work that pushes the envelope of what is currently possible using Velociraptor. Potential topics to be addressed by submissions include, but are not limited to:

  • Use cases of Velociraptor in real investigations
  • Novel deployment modes to cater for specific requirements
  • Contributions to Velociraptor to address new capabilities
  • Potential future ideas and features that Velociraptor
  • Integration of Velociraptor with other tools/frameworks
  • Analysis and acquisition on novel Forensic Artifacts

  1. Your name and email address (if different from the sending email)
