The Black Alps values are the followings:

  • Independence: We are an independent conference, we are not affiliated with any commercial or industrial group.
  • Content: The content is selected by a program commitee. Our goal is to provide you with interesting and exceptional talks and workshops who are consistent with the industrial world.
  • Privacy: We assure you the confidentiality and privacy of your information; we do not share this information, especially we do not share it with our partners or sponsors.

Black Alps is supported by the unversity of applied sciences HEIG-VD, the swiss techonpole Y-PARC, and staff involved in the previous cyber security events in Yverdon-les-Bains:
