Digital Villainy Summit (DVS) is an adults-only online convention, during which art, panels, events, workshops, and DJ sets are streamed on Picarto.

The convention was founded in 2019 under the moniker of KorpsCon. It was themed around furry supervillains and took inspiration from the Korps fictional universe created by Karen "Kraken" King.[1] In 2022, the convention was renamed Digital Villainy Summit or DVS (as a pun on the English word "devious"), to reflect an expanded scope of content, including livestreams, kink, art, fiction, animation, gaming, and more.[2]

DVS's charity of choice from 2019-2022 was The 519, Canada’s most prominent LGBTQ2S community centre and service provider.[3] Since 2023, a new charity is chosen yearly.[2]
