CALL FOR PAPERS: CanSecWest/core03
The fourth annual CanSecWest computer security training
conference is scheduled to be held April 16-18 2003 in
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Submissions and presentation proposals for tutorials
for this conference will be accepted during the months
of September and October 2002, with preference given
to submissions made in September.
The CanSecWest conferences consist of tutorials on
advanced 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.
