If you prefer the bus, take A12 or A11 (plus some walking). Are there good occasions for networking and meeting people? Definitely yes, and we hope of having been able to encourage these opportunities. For example at the end of the second day we have 45 minutes fully dedicated to networking. It's also possible to use some of this time to show something about you and your research on the stage, maybe introducing your company or your projects, that's particularly suggested for the invited groups of students. If you like the idea please tell us about it. How can I attend the event? Information and additional FAQ about registration will be available in few weeks. Do I have to bring something with me? Business cards. Mobile phone will be useful for consulting some material we plan to provide during the event. Wi-Fi may be available mainly for sharing some material with the attendees. The hotel already provides notepads, pens and water. Dress code? Casual or business, it's up to you. T-shirt, (medium/long) shorts and shoes are the bare minimum. Code of Conduct? Respect the others, no offenses, no aggressive and inappropriate behavior. This is a place where we plan to share experiences and do networking with people interested in the topics of the event.

These FAQ will be updated and improved in the next weeks.


REVULN™ has been founded in Malta (European Union) the 13 September 2012, later more companies have been incorporated in Belize (Central America) and Hong Kong (China, Asia).

We are specialized in Information Technology Security, mainly in vulnerability research and reverse engineering, we work on various projects and activities for private companies, organizations and governments worldwide.

Since 2019 we finance and organize some international events too.

The founder of REVULN™ is Luigi Auriemma, he has a wide and proven experience of almost 20 years in finding 0-day vulnerabilities and reverse engineering of protocols, file formats and proprietary code, activities that he started since the year 2000 and for which he released an incredible amount of security advisories, 0-day exploits, research papers and source code, ever under the full-disclosure and open source philosophies.

Luigi has been a very active independent researcher before starting REVULN™ in 2012, he has been one of the most prolific researchers for ZDI in 3 consecutive years, his projects and patches keep alive many gaming communities otherwise defunct, he maintains the largest collection of game file formats available, found 0-days in a wide range of proprietary and open source products ranging from SCADA/ICS to enterprise servers, from game engines for triple-A titles to SmartTV, media players, online poker client software, BitTorrent clients, financial software and so on.

Both Luigi and REVULN™ have been featured in various news articles, a brief collection is available in the Press page. The most notable article has been published on the front page of New York Times the 14 July 2013 about vulnerability brokers and governments: Nations Buying as Hackers Sell Knowledge of Software Flaws, and the original front page [PDF].

We have also been speakers at various international conferences where we presented our research material, an archive of our papers and slides is available in the Research Page.
