(sorry for the xpostings)
The call for papers for YSTS (you sh0t the sheriff) 2.0 is now open!
The 2nd edition will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on November 17th and
YSTS is a very unique event dedicated to the top-notch Information Security
Society in Brazil, having local and speakers from abroad.
YSTS mixes the highest quality presentations, covering diverse topics in
information security, from all technical haxor to management C level good
The goal is make the attendees get the "real big picture" of the current
state of information security world, mixing professionals from different
Infosec segments of the market.
For the attendees, this is almost an invite-only event. So, submitting a
talk is certainly a good hack to try to be there, specially if you're local.
Due to the success of last year's edition, we'll keep the same format:
- - Kicked-back and cozy environment
- - YSTS 2.0 will be held at an almost secret location
- - Once again, this secret location will, most likely, be a club or a bar
- - and yes, we have food and drinks
The focus for YSTS 2.0 will include the following:
* Operating Systems
* Career and Management topics
* Mobile Devices/Embedded Systems
* Information Security Audit and Control
* Web and anything 2.0
* Information Security Policies
* Networking/Telecommunication/Radio Frequencies
* Incident Response & other applicable (and useful) Infosec Policies
* Information Warfare
* Malware/ BotNets
* User awareness/ Social Networking Threats
* Secure Programming
* Hacker Spaces/ hacker community
* Physical Security
* Cryptography / Obfuscation
* Infrastructure and Critical Systems
* Caipirinha Hacks
* and everything else security related you might think would be good for
We like shorter talks, 30 minutes is plenty for you to deliver the message,
but, if you feel
like you need more time, please be specific in the paper submission
WHAT WOULD YOU GET BEING A SPEAKER?
* Round-trip economy class air-ticket for one person
* Airport transportation arrangements
* 4 nights of accommodation

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO BE A SPEAKER AND GO TO BRAZIL?
* Sao Paulo is a melting-pot of different cultures, with plenty of stuff
* We really take care of our speakers (you don't have to trust us, I am
sure you know
at least one of our previous speakers, check with them)
* We highly recommend that if you're coming from abroad, you stick around
for a few more days
