    EUSecWest/core06 CALL FOR PAPERS

    London Security Summit February 20/21 2006

    LONDON, United Kingdom -- Applied technical security
    will be the focus of a new annual conference from the
    organizers of CanSecWest, and PacSec, which is sponsored
    by the U.K. Ministry of Defence - where the eminent
    figures in the international security industry will
    get together with leading European researchers to
    share best practices and technology. 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 central London at the Victoria
    Park Plaza hotel on February 20 and 21.

    The EUSecWest meeting provides international researchers
    a relaxed, comfortable environment to learn from informative
    tutorials on key developments in security technology, and
    to collaborate and socialize with their peers in one of the
    world's hubs of IT activity - downtown London.

    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
    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.
    The attendees can get user evaluations and learn
    from sharing experiences about real world security
    applications and the practical uses of the products - the
    "focus group." Hence the name: Elevator Focus Groups.

    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 proposal submissions before December 1st 2006.
    Slides for the papers must be submitted by February 1st 2006.

    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 core06@eusecwest.com. Only slides
    will be needed for the February paper deadline, full text
    does not have to be submitted.

    The EUSecWest/core06 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.
    4) Any significant presentation and educational experience/background.
    5) Topic synopsis, Proposed paper title, and a one paragraph description.
    6) Reason why this material is innovative or significant or an
        important tutorial.
    7) Optionally, any samples of prepared material or outlines ready.

    Please include the plain text version of this information in your email
    as well as any file, pdf, or html attachments.

    Please forward the above information to core06@eusecwest.com to
    be considered for placement on the speaker roster, have your lightning
    talk scheduled, or submit your product for inclusion in the focus

    Advance discount registration is now available for EUSecWest
