ToorCon is just around the corner again this year. In its 7th running
year, it is still San Diego's exclusive hacker convention, bringing
together Southern California's hacker community year after year to
attend the high quality presentations and participate in the annual
festivities. This year we are still aiming to provide the same highly
technical lectures you've come to know and love, but also set the theme
as "Smoke & Mirrors" which will highlight the voodoo magic behind
computer security and have a focus on Anonymity, Spoofing Techniques,
Phishing, and other kung foo exploitation methods. We will also be
offering an intensive full-day Deep Knowledge Seminars on Friday the
16th that we are accepting submissions for.
SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
ToorCon only accepts talks on new technologies and methodologies that
have been recently developed. We will not accept papers that have
already been presented prior to 2005, unless they present fundamental
concepts or conform to any of the outlined topics below.
Special consideration will be given to papers addressing the following
* Cryptography & Privacy
* Anonymity Concepts
* Forensics, Tracking & Phishing
* Advanced Attack Methods (Exploits, Reverse Engineering, etc)
* Hardware & Protocol Attacks
All talks should be 60 minutes in length including time for delegate
participation and questions at the end of the presentation. Inclusion of
any talk related tools, white papers or source code will help during the
selection process. While we try to facilitate speakers' requests for
equipment, we may not be able to accommodate all requests. In cases
where we cannot guarantee special equipment the speaker is expected to
supply hardware and/or software. Each speaker is also expected to bring
their own laptop to display their presentation.
All talks must be vendor neutral, while speakers are welcome to present
on behalf of a company - sales pitches will be thrown out.
For each chosen presentation ToorCon will give the speaker and 1 guest
