For TROOPERS18 (March 12-16th, 2018) we want to try something a little different, especially since the limited budget of many students should not get in the way of "Making the World a Safer Place". We have decided to do away with the Student Rates and instead ask all Students wanting to come to TROOPERS to submit a motivational letter instead.
What needs to be included in your motivational letter:
- Tell us about yourself!
- Current field of work/degree programs
- Why are you interested in IT-Security?
- How do you help "Make the World a Safer Place?
- Published work/research/white papers/write-ups?
- Why do you want to come to TROOPERS?
- What you will contribute to TROOPERS as an attendee?
Send this letter to email@example.com.
TROOPERS18 Student tickets will include free entry to our Next Generation Internet event on Monday and Tuesday, our Main TROOPERS conference on Wednesday and Thursday, and our Roundtable discussions on Friday. While we do not provide travel assistance at this time please refer to our travel page https://www.troopers.de/travel/ for information regarding where to stay and how to get here. If you have questions or need assistance you can always write us at info@troopers. We will have two rounds of Student acceptance for TROOPERS18 tickets. The first round will be decided on December 1, 2017. Deadline for round 1 submissions is November 30th. The second round will be decided on February 1, 2018. Deadline for consideration for the final round will be January 31st. All students will be notified regarding decisions within 48 hours.
Please submit your motivational letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include proof of your current Bachelors or Masters degree status. This could be a valid student ID or official letter from your University. Motivational letters that do not include proof of active student status will not be considered for TROOPERS18 tickets.
We look forward to seeing you at TROOPERS18!
