Mathieu Sauve-Frankel writes in with the following announcement for RECON 2005.

While msf@ is an OpenBSD developer and is one of the event organizers, our readers should also note that OpenBSD developers past and present will be in attendance as speakers too. In addition to a more traditional three day conference format, there are two intensive reverse engineering sessions. For those who can attend, this looks like a great first year kickoff for what promises to be an excellent infosec training experience:
