hehehe, I don't doubt they will be there.

Federal agents have been asked to stay away from one of the world's biggest hacker gatherings.

Revelations about the scale of US government spying meant emotions in the hacking world were "running high", said organisers of the Def Con convention.

As a result, federal agents should take a "timeout" from Def Con this year. U.S. Federal Agents Asked To Stay Away From Def Con Hacker Conference [bbc.co.uk]

I have somewhere, a Def Con branded room key entry card.
The Def Con conference had just ended so the hotel was using up the cards. The hotel staff suggested I should not use the cash machines in the hotel. I complied.
