DefCon is a very adult orientated conference, more of a party then your typical conference. There will be adult language, alcohol and there may be nudity.
The DefCon Kids conference room will be situated in and around the adult DEFCON, therefore you and your kids will be exposed to a wide assortment of people, lifestyles and philosophies.
We are not trying to scare you off but please research past DEFCON conferences and understand the environment that you are bringing your child into.
It is very wise that you read these two FAQ’s about DEFCON https://www.defcon.org/html/defcon-20/dc-20-faq.html and https://www.defcon.org/html/links/dc-faq/dc-faq.html
There is no pre-registration to DefCon Kids sessions. Like all DEFCON events you must wait in line outside the door for each session that you and your kid would like to attend.
Because of limited space in the classroom and workshop rooms, you and your kid may not be able to attend certain sessions because they will be full.
DefCon Kids has no additional fee but kids and parents must have a DEFCON badge. These badges can be bought at the conference. Please see https://www.defcon.org/html/defcon-20/dc-20-faq.html and https://www.defcon.org/html/links/dc-faq/dc-faq.html
Parents will be required to sign a waiver/release form when registering their child for the first time at the DefCon kids rooms. This waiver form will require them to show and fill out their identification for themselves and their child.
Parents are responsible for their children throughout the DefCon Kids sessions. Parents and Kids must stay together at all times. If the room fills up then the doors will be closed and no one else may enter.
