After travelling the world to attend many excellent security conferences
with our compatriots, we decided it was time to pull finger and organise
one in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

This is the call for presenters for the inaugural Kiwicon.


Kiwicon '07 will be a largely informal conference, organised by the
security community for the security community. It will be held in
Wellington, New Zealand, on the weekend of the 17th and 18th of
November, 2007.

It will focus on sharing information; ideas, code, and catching up with
other like-minded people from around New Zealand (and further abroad).


Our hosts for the weekend will be Victoria University of Wellington.

This location has the advantage of being close to cheap accommodation
and, more importantly, several good pubs. Details will be provided
closer to the conference date.


Kiwicon '07 is a non-profit event.

Attendance for the entire weekend will cost $50 for employed individuals
(self-employed and salaried). There is a discounted rate of $30 for
students and the unemployed.

Please do note that there are several good pubs in close proximity. We
anticipate the total cost of the weekend in money and dignity may be higher.


Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

- Information Warfare / Industrial Espionage
- Satellite Hacking
- Echelon - Waihopai & Tangimoana
- Lockpicking / Wiretapping / Bugs
- Biometrics
- Cellular Networks (GSM,GPRS,CDMA,3G,4G)

We do not plan on having pre-determined time slots for presentations. If
your talk is only 20 minutes long, then you will only be talking for 20
minutes. The goal of the weekend is to share useful information - this
means flexible time limits.
