Pass the SALT

What? Pass the SALT (Security And Libre Talks) is:

  • a technical conference
  • dedicated to Free Software/Hardware (and also Open Formats/Protocols) and Security
  • 3 days long event
  • all the talks will be given in English in order to share the conference with non French speaking speakers in the most comfortable manner.
  • a free access event (as in free beer)
  • Location and date: the 2022 edition of Pass the SALT will be held July, 4 to 6 2022 at Polytech Engineering School in Lille, France.

Why? Hackers from many Security and Free Software fields coming to exchange knowledge and cooperate.

If for any reason, it would be impossible to do it IRL, we won't switch to virtual. It will be postponed to 2023.

Our commitment : if for any reason we are forced to postpone the 2022 edition, we commit ourselves to communicate this decision as soon as possible to the speakers. Accepted speakers would remain accepted for 2023 but are also free to cancel their postponed participation.
