-=] About RootedCON

RootedCON is a technology congress that will be developed in Madrid
(Spain) from 5 - 7 of march 2020.

With an estimated seating from 2.500 to 3.000 people, is the most
relevant specialized congress that is held in the country, and one of
the most relevant in Europe, with attendee profiles ranging from
students, Law Enforcenment Agencies to professionals in the technology
and information security market and, even, just passionate people.

This is our XI edition, *after one tenth anniversary!*. And as in every
edition, we want it to make it special :)

-=] Talk types

We will mostly accept two kind of talks:

- Fast talks:           20 minutes.

not being shown in any other forum, blog, web, event or congress.
