Keynote Talks


"Bringing the Body's Electrical Signals Out of the Body and Designing Interfaces Therein" by Timothy Marzullo

"Social Engineering The News" by Michael Schrenk


Keynote Speakers

Timothy Marzullo


Timothy Marzullo
In early 2009, Tim co-founded "Backyard Brains," whose motto is "Neuroscience for Everyone" by designing and making inexpensive equipment (<$100) and experiments that allows scientists of all ages to study and understand the electrical activity of the brain, muscles, and heart. The idea began as a self-imposed engineering challenge between Tim and his friend Gregory Gage to improve neuroscience outreach to local schools in Michigan.
With the generous sponsorship of the Kauffman Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Start-Up Chile Program, Tim works on rapidly bringing prototypes to market and designing intuitive experiments that teach students about physiology. To date the inventions of Backyard Brains are in all 50 States in the USA and 82 countries around the world.
Timothy Marzullo received his B.S. in Biochemistry in 2001 from the University of Texas in Austin and his Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 2008 at the Neural Engineering Lab at the University of Michigan. From 2009-2010, Tim worked as a research engineer for NeuroNexus Technologies, designing and supporting novel brain electrode technology for scientists around the world.

Michael Schrenk


Michael Schrenk
Unlike most hackers, Michael Schrenk writes and speaks about his adventures. Over the past twenty years, he has lectured about information security from Moscow to Silicon Valley, and most places in between. Along the way, he's been interviewed by BBC, The Christian Science Monitor, and many others. In addition to data security issues, Mike has a passion for Data Journalism and has led journalism workshops in Belgium, The Netherlands, and wrote and conducted weekend workshops for The Centre for Investigative Journalism at City College in London.
Mike also conducts a Competitive Intelligence consultancy in Las Vegas and is the author of “Webbots, Spiders, and Screen Scrapers" (San Francisco: No Starch, 2012). He is also a seven-time speaker at the notorious DEF CON hacking conference.

Here's what else in store for you:

  • Featured keynotes and multiple speaker tracks
  • Capture the Flag (Plus: Wild West Hackin Fest Preview by BHIS)
  • Lockpicking Village (relaxed fun and competition)
  • Hardware Hacking Workshops (JTAG friendly)
  • Bio Hacking Village (Hack your friends brain!)
  • Software Defined Radio (SDR) 101 Workshops
