EUSecWest CALL FOR PAPERS
LONDON, U.K. -- The second annual EUSecWest applied technical
security conference - where the eminent figures in the international
security industry will get together share best practices and
technology - will be held in downtown London at the the Victoria Park
Plaza hotel in March 1-2 2007. The most significant new discoveries
about computer network hack attacks and defenses, commercial security
solutions, and pragmatic real world security experience will be
presented in a series of informative tutorials.
The EUSecWest meeting provides international researchers a relaxed,
comfortable environment to learn from informative tutorials on key
developments in security technology, and collaborate and socialize
with their peers in one of the world's most central cities.
In addition to the usual one hour tutorials, panel sessions and highly
entertaining 5 minute "lightning" talks, this conference will also
feature a new session called "Elevator Focus Groups". Featuring
several short sessions, these commercial presentations will showcase
new, significantly used, or dramatically innovative new products in
the information security realm. Each selected vendor will have a short
10 minute presentation ("elevator pitch"), after which 10 minutes of
audience Q&A and interactive discussion amongst the expert security
practitioners attending will follow. In this session both the audience
and the vendors can get valuable feedback from world leading experts
and the attendees can get user evaluations and learn from sharing
experiences and real world security applications about practical uses
of the products - the "focus group." Hence the name: Elevator Focus
The EUSecWest conference will also feature the availability of the
Security Masters Dojo expert network security sensei instructors, and
their advanced, and intermediate, hands-on training courses -
featuring small class sizes and practical application excercises to
maximize information transfer.
We would like to announce the opportunity to submit papers, lightning
talk proposals, and elevator focus candidate products for selection by
the EUSecWest technical review committee.
Please make your paper proposal submissions before October 20th,
2006. Slides for the papers must be submitted by January 15th, 2007.
Some invited papers have been confirmed, but a limited number of
speaking slots are still available. The conference is responsible for
travel and accomodations for the speakers. If you have a proposal for
a tutorial session then please email a synopsis of the material and
your biography, papers and, speaking background to
secwest07 at ...13596... Only slides will be needed for
the March paper deadline, full text does not have to be
submitted - but will be accepted if available.
The EUSecWest 2007 conference consists of tutorials on technical
details about current issues, innovative techniques and best practices
in the information security realm. The audiences are a multi-national
mix of professionals involved on a daily basis with security work:
security product vendors, programmers, security officers, and network
administrators. We give preference to technical details and new
education for a technical audience.
The conference itself is a single track series of presentations in a
lecture theater environment. The presentations offer speakers the
opportunity to showcase on-going research and collaborate with peers
while educating and highlighting advancements in security products and
techniques. The focus is on innovation, tutorials, and education
instead of product pitches. Some commercial content is tolerated, but
it needs to be backed up by a technical presenter - either giving a
valuable tutorial and best practices instruction or detailing
significant new technology in the products.
Paper proposals should consist of the following information:
1. Presenter, and geographical location (country of origin/passport)
and contact info (e-mail, postal address, phone, fax).
2. Employer and/or affiliations.
3. Brief biography, list of publications and papers.
