SyScan'08 Call For Paper/Training

*About SyScan'08*
The Symposium on Security for Asia Network aims to be a very different security conference from the rest of the security conferences that the information security community in Asia has come to be so familiar and frustrated with.
SyScan is a non-product, non-vendor biased security conference. It is the aspiration of SyScan to congregate in Asia the best security experts in their various fields, to share their research, discovery and experience with all security enthusiasts in Asia.

Speakers who have presented in previous SyScan conferences are among the best and brightest in the respective field.
Many of theses previous presentations were outstanding and awesome, with the industry still in active discussion today.
This will continue to be case as the highly regarded members of the Call for Paper (CFP) committee will ensure only the top speakers with the best content will speak at SyScan. Your participation in SyScan will help you to maintain your technological leadership and stay abreast of the latest developments in this rapidly moving technological field.

This two-day symposium would be held in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, allowing all participants to enjoy themselves whilst expanding their knowledge on information security. This is a single-track conference.
