LAST CALL FOR PAPERS
Network Security Training Conference
April 21,22,23 - 2004
CanSecWest would like to announce the final really, really,
last call for papers of the spring, fifth annual,
CanSecWest/core04 network security training conference. The
conference will be held on April 21,22,23 at the Mariott
Renaissance in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The conference focuses on emerging information security
tutorials and technology.
So many people have come in after the deadline because we
did it earlier this year and asked for more time...
That the deadline will be extended to: January 5, 2004.
Preference will be given to earlier proposals.
Resubmissions are not necessary for those who have
submitted though they may resubmit at their option.
I would also like to announce the call for a second type of
presentation. This year we will do a session of "lightning
talks": 5 minutes max (BigHook/Gong enforced) and 1-3 slides.
Selected "lightning talk" presenters will only receive
registration discounts (or rebates) - travel and accomodations
are their responsibility. "Ligntning talk" submissions
should follow the same submission guidelines below.
Deadline for "lightning talk" submissions is January 15th, 2004.
Please make your paper proposal submissions on/before January 5, 2004!
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 email@example.com.
Tutorials are one hour in length, Only slides will be needed for
the March paper deadline, full text does not have to be submitted.
The CanSecWest/core04 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 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 overt 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
7) Optionally, any samples of prepared material or outlines ready.
Please forward the above information to firstname.lastname@example.org to
be considered for placement on the speaker roster.
