TOKYO, Japan -- To address the increasing importance of information security in Japan, the best known figures in the international security industry will get together with leading Japanese researchers to share best practices and technology. The most significant new discoveries about computer network attacks will be presented at the ninth annual PacSec conference to be discussed.

The PacSec meeting provides an opportunity for foreign specialists to be exposed to Japanese innovation and markets and collaborate on practical solutions to computer security issues. In an informal setting with a mixture of material bilingually translated in both English and Japanese the eminent technologists can socialize and attend training sessions.

Announcing the opportunity to submit papers for the PacSec 2011 network security training conference. The conference will be held November 9/10th in Tokyo. The conference focuses on emerging information security tutorials - it is a bridge between the international and Japanese information security technology communities..

Please make your paper proposal submissions before August 3rd, 2011. Slides for the papers must be submitted for translation by October 1, 2011 (Which, oh so rarely, happens so we are going to start asking for them earlier :-P --dr).

A some invited papers have been confirmed, but a limited number of speaking slots are still available. 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 "secwest11 [at] pacsec.jp" . Tutorials are one hour in length, but with simultaneous translation should be approximately 45 minutes in English, or Japanese. Only slides will be needed for the October paper deadline, full text does not have to be submitted.

The PacSec 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 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.
