REMINDER: The Call for Papers for the 2nd annual Hack In The Box GSEC
conference in Singapore closes on the 1st of May.

Call for Papers: http://gsec.hitb.org/cfp/
Event Website: http://gsec.hitb.org/sg2016/

HITB GSEC is a new single track 2-day deep knowledge security conference
where attendees get to vote on the final agenda of talks and get a
chance to meet with the speakers they voted for and fellow attendees
based on the votes they cast.

We have an all-women keynote line up this year with Erin Jacobs, Katie
Moussouris and Fabienne Serriere. We're hoping to fill at least half the
agenda with women researchers but we can't do so unless more women
submit! If you know any female researchers working on interesting stuff,
please do send this along to them.

As usual, we are looking for 60-minute, offensive focused deep-knowledge
presentations. Research that is new, novel and preferably material
that has not been presented elsewhere prior.

Submission Process:

1.) Register for an account at http://gsec.hitb.org/cfp/
2.) Send us the following:

 - Presentation abstract (1000 - 1500 words)
 - A recent photograph
 - Draft white paper (3500 - 5000 words) - OPTIONAL
 - Supporting material (poc code, slides, video etc) - OPTIONAL

3.) When CFP closes, audience voting begins. Each registered delegate
gets 3 votes to cast against any presentations they like.

4.) When a presentation receives 8 votes it is removed from voting. You
then receive an email introduction to voters which allows you to further
fine tune your presentation to suit the audience profile.

Important Dates:

May 1st 2016 - Call for Papers closes
May 1st - June 30th  - Voting period
1st week of July - Final agenda announced
