SuriCon 2015 | Barcelona

Our First Annual Conference in Barcelona was a great success!

In November 2015, Suricata users from around the world came together for the first time in Barcelona, Spain. It was an incredible week of training, talks, networking, and community!

The conference far exceeded our expectations so we thought we would share some highlights, a few photos, and the presentation decks from our amazing speakers.


  • When planning began we hoped for 50 people to sign up — we ended up with over 100 Suricata fans in attendance!
  • Over 50 organizations were represented — a great testament to Suricata’s global reach.
  • Over the two-day conference, there were more than 10 talks with industry experts.
  • As a community, we mapped Suricata’s development roadmap for 2016.
  • 90% of the total cost of the conference was met: thanks to our sponsors and Suricata training attendees — we couldn’t have done it without you!
  • 70% of those surveyed said they are already planning on attending next year’s conference in Washington, DC.
