Dear Readers of DailyDave

*ABOUT SYSCAN'14 Singapore*

Date: 31 March - 4 April 2014.

Venue: Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel

 

So, I have decided to have SyScan'14. The odds are against SyScan'14 (you will find out why soon) but I'm going ahead 
with it. We are going to roll out a very different format to make the conference more interesting and fun for both the 
attendees and the speakers. 

 

Our experience tells us that many of you have very good materials for your talks but they do not last 1 hour. Well we 
are not going to impose this constraint on you. We will offer you 3 choices -- 30 minutes, 45 minutes and 1 hour. We 
want 
speakers to get to the point and talk about the important things about their research. Besides the standard 
presentations, we will be having a *FAILCON* segment within SyScan'14. We want to have speakers presenting about their 
epic failure in 
security (research, pentest etc). We like you to share your failures so that we can all learn from your mistakes. We 
are also going to have a *Long-Lightning-Talks* segment. Speakers in this segment will be given 15 minutes. Finally, we 
will 
have the *WhiskeyCon*. Anyone attending SyScan'14 can go on stage and present anything related to security (NO PRODUCT 
PIMPING!). The amount of time you have will be based on the number of shots of whiskey that you drink before the 
talk. Every 2 shots of whiskey get you 5 minutes.

 

Finally, all speakers, except those from WhiskeyCon, will get to take part in the BEST SPEAKER CONTEST. The winner of 
this contest will walk away with 1000 Singapore Dollars.

 

Unless we or anyone have a better idea, we will continue with SHACK () PATTAYA for SyScan'14 Singapore. We promise more 
alcohol and more jaw-dropping entertainment.

 

As for training classes, we intend to be different from other conferences too. In SyScan'14, we will be offering 
trainers a profit sharing ratio of 60:40. We believe the trainers deserve the bigger share of the profit as they are 
doing most of the work. 
So if you have a good training program, we like you to have a class in SyScan'14.
