  • Why Omaha?

    Kernelcon was founded with one goal in mind:

    To be the midwest's premier information security conference.

    Therefore, the event needs to be centrally located, with a large local infosec community. Omaha has three universities certified as Centers of Academic Excellence through the NSA, multiple local cyber security groups such as DEF CON 402, NebraskaCERT, and NULLify, and plenty of opportunities in the information security field.

    Kernelcon will be held in the heart of Omaha’s historic Old Market, alongside the Missouri River. The Old Market is the hub of Omaha’s nightlife, with excellent bars, breweries, restaurants and shops all around.

    Our venue, the Embassy Suites Omaha, is a quick drive/shuttle ride from Omaha Eppley Airfield. Omaha is less than a day’s drive from many large cities in the Midwest and is an easy flight from both coasts. Pack your bags and plan for a trip where the people are friendly, the steaks are fresh, and hacking goes all night.

  • Where to Park
