In light of the growing concerns around the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the organizers of BloomCON and BloomCON Hak4Kidz have made the decision to cancel the 2020 conferences. We’ve reached this decision after much consideration and feel this is the best course of action to protect the health and well-being of our community. We will be issuing refunds for paid tickets.

BloomCON and BloomCON Hak4Kidz will be returning March 26-27, 2021!

BloomCON is Bloomsburg University’s annual digital forensics, cybersecurity, and hacking conference. The conference hosts a variety of speakers and features unique workshops and cybersecurity challenges.

The fifth BloomCON Forensics and Security conference will be held March 27-28, 2020 at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds.
