We are excited to announce David Oranchak will be our keynote speaker for this year's conference.

David Oranchak has been engineering web and database software for over 20 years. His interests in puzzles, cryptology, and generative creative works developed into a book on Shinro puzzles and a comprehensive web site dedicated to the unsolved Zodiac Killer cryptograms. His expertise on the Zodiac ciphers has led to his involvement with several Zodiac related documentaries, development of cryptanalysis software for the FBI, and the Youtube series "Let's Crack Zodiac."
