Call for Paper - SyScan'07

SyScan intends to be a non-product, non-vendor biased security conference. It is the aspiration of SyScan to congregate, in Singapore, the best security experts in their various fields, to share their research, discovery and experience with all security enthusiasts in Asia.

Besides main the conference, there will also be specialized security training courses in SyScan’07. These classes will be held before the main conference.

SyScan’07 will be held in Singapore over at the Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel. The main conference will be held on 5^th and 6^th of July and the training will be held on 3^rd and 4^th of July, 2007.
