The second LayerOne conference is now officially accepting papers and
presentations for speaker selection. We are looking for people to speak
on a broad range of topics; however, we encourage all submissions. To
give you an idea of the sorts of things that were covered last year:

- CryptoMail: mail encryption for all.
- Life Hacks and Hacked Lives
- How the DMCA is Threatening to Strangle Reverse Engineering and the
Future of Interoperability
- Visual Deep Packet Inspection
- A User-Centric Distributed Social Software Architecture

Please note that we'd love to see as broad a range of topics this year
as we did last year, so don't consider this to be a strict guideline on
what we'd like people to be submitting. If you've got something that
you think will fit, by all means send it in. To see a list of topics
from 2004, visit our website.

Please be sure to include the following information in your submission:

- Presentation name
- A one-sentence synopsis of your presentation
- A longer one to three paragraph synopsis or short outline of what you
plan on covering
- Names of and URLs to presenter(s)
- A short (single-paragraph) biography of the presenter(s)

Once everything's ready to go, send your submission to cfp [at]
layerone [dot] info no later than March 1, 2005. All papers submitted
by then will receive either an acceptance or rejection notice no later
than March 15th, 2005. Speaker selection is expected to be finalised on
this date.

Although we only have one speaking track, please bear in mind that
speaking slots are limited to one hour. How you use that time is
entirely up to you - but most people tend to divide it between
presentation and a Q&A session. If you think your presentation will run
longer please advise us when you turn in your proposal and we will do
our best take your needs into consideration.

If the presentation is based on code or a particular technique the
presenter must be one of the developers of the code/technique and be
prepared to perform a demonstration.

We look forward to reading over your submissions, which we are sure
will be outstanding. Once again, if you have any questions or
submissions please email cfp [at] layerone [dot] info. Thank you for
your interest, and we look forward to seeing you there.
