Belgrade is a cosmopolitan lovechild of the East and the West, nestled at the confluence of two great European rivers.

QuBit in SEE
QuBit is a Cyber Security Community event connecting the East and West. Based on the success in Prague and CEE region in combination with the Southern hunger for educational conference, we decided to expand further and bring QuBit also to SEE region.
