About the Event

Hackathons bring tech-savvy people together in a collaborative setting to solve problems, advance a technology or produce another type of positive outcome. One of the issues hackathons can address is cybersecurity. On December 19, 2020 (Saturday), this conference organizes two hackathon events in network security and blockchain security. Based on your interested security problem, you can register one of the hackathon event. The detailed instructions will be given during the conference dates. You cannot participate in both hackathon events together because of time conflicts. The number of seats is limited to 100 for the network security hackathon track 1. Please reserve your spot with small registration fee ($10) which will be refundable to you after you participate in hackathon. If you didn’t participate in this hackathon after registration, you cannot get refund from us because your registration makes another student lose the chance of participation and learning.

Our prize is Amazon gift cards!

We will select the grand, the first, the second, the third place, and several honor places for each track in this Hackathon competition depending on the available funding. However, we will post the winners on our websites up to the third place.

The award is supported by the conference sponsors and San Jose State University. Thank you so much!!!
