Due to 0x7E4 version cannot be run
See you in 2021 with 0x7E5 version

At the beginning of March, BSidesLjubljana organization team decided to postpone the planned event for 4th April until autumn due to the new coronavirus outbreak. After continuously monitoring COVID-19 situation, we are sad to inform you about our decision to ** fully cancel BSidesLjubljana 0x7E4 (2020) **.

In one of the backup plan scenarios we were also considering of going virtual as some of the similar events did in new COVID-19 reality, but BSidesLjubljana was built on full in-person experience and happening on the event, beyond just great talks and workshop presented, from all networking; all on-site competitions going on, including Capture the Flag; 1:1 knowledge exchange between participants and we believe this is why our BSides event is so genuine and unique and cannot be done virtually.

Because the situation is still very unpredictable in organizing live events, we realized organizing BSidesLjubljana this year would be too risky or even impossible to our standards.

We hope the situation will get better by the end of the year and we can start organizing a great BSidesLjubljana 0x7E5 (2021). We want to THANK: speakers for submitting their papers and willing to contribute to an amazing event; sponsors for support and willing to make this event possible; all the fans and other participants for helping spread the word; everyone who got supporter tickets (please send us an email to refund[at]bsidesljubljana[dot]si for refund).

Thank you for your understanding and we hope you stay healthy!

Dear BSidesLjubljana attendees and speakers,

following the rapid escalation of the Covid-19 outbreak around the world and due to the latest restrictions of Slovenian National Security Council and Slovenian Government regarding the Novel Coronavirus (which have instituted a ban on all indoor events with more than 100 visitors) [EN version][SI version] and our concerns as organizers, we are very sad to inform you that we had to make the hard decision and CANCEL BSidesLjubljana planned for 4th April 2020.

We have been continuously monitoring developments regarding the Coronavirus and we have to admit for us as organizers of BSidesLjubljana it has been a difficult, unpredictable, and stressful time with many considerations in mind. We truly regret any inconvenience you may have at this point but the health and safety of everybody is our top priority and concern. 

We will consider the option of postponing the event and having it sometime later this year. We will keep you updated about this as well. We have started our outreach to all sponsors, attendees, and speakers with the next steps. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach us over email hello[at]bsidesljubljana[dot]org or twitter @BSidesLjubljana.

We appreciate your support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you in a rescheduled version of this same event.

From the heart, we wish you to stay healthy and keep on hacking,
BSidesLjubljana Organizational Team
