CanSecWest 2007 CALL FOR PAPERS

VANCOUVER, Canada -- The eighth annual CanSecWest 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 Vancouver at the the Mariott Renaissance Harbourside on April 18-20,
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 CanSecWest 2007 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 scenic cities - a short drive away from one
of North America's top skiing areas.

The CanSecWest 2007 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, and/or lightning
talk proposals, for selection by the CanSecWest technical review committee.
Please make your paper proposal submissions before January 7th, 2007. Slides
for the papers must be submitted by March 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 secwes07@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 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 CanSecWest 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.
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.
8) Will you have full text available or only slides?
9) Please list any other publications or conferences where this material has
been or will be published/submitted.

Please include the plain text version of this information in your email as
well as any file, pdf, sxw, ppt, or html attachments. (Some reviewers only
look at .txt info.) Multiple submissions are acceptable.

Please forward the above information to be considered for placement on the
speaker roster, or have your short lightning talk scheduled. Send all
conference related correspondence to secwes07@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

thanks,
