Troopers 09 Security Conference, Call for Papers
From: Enno Rey <erey () ernw de>
Date: Tue, 17 Feb 2009 12:04:35 +0100
We'll do it again ;-)
Last year _everybody_ involved in the event (speakers and attendees) enjoyed themselves and could significantly gain
knowledge (and/or network with other researchers). There were keynotes by Dan Bernstein and Chris Hoff, a number of
great talks ... and we had a fabulous speakers dinner in a medieval place in Munich. For anybody interested in the
inaugural event see www.troopers08.org.
This year's Troopers edition will be held in Munich again (on 04/22 and 04/23) and will only be one track, as we
cooperate with another industry style event (mainly to avoid the heavy workload of organizing a con which keeps us away
from the technical stuff we prefer to do in our lives ;-)
Our call for papers addresses security researchers interested in sharing their knowledge with other researchers and a
high level audience. We would like to invite everyone with special knowledge in breaking security in whatever area or
practical experience in securing complex information systems to present their skills.
We will cover the flight costs (limited to EUR 500 for speakers from Europe and US$ 1500 for speakers from other
continents) and two nights of accomodation.
Given an appropriate subject and technical level we're happy to welcome "fresh speakers" (not seen in various places
before) and we're happy to help you with setting up your talk (or getting over your pre-talk excitement).
We are mainly interested in talks on
Security in Carrier Environments
Obviously heavy vendor-pitching will not be welcomed warmly and we reserve the right to ask for modifications of
confirmed talks if we have the impression there's too much of that in a talk. If you have to offer another "Web 2.0
cross browser unicode overflow" talk you may submit it. However chances will be bigger if you have some more innovative
stuff to talk about...
CFP submissions [to erey () ernw de] must include the following information:
1) Brief biography including list of publications and papers published previously.
2) Proposed presentation title & synopsis/description.
3) Contact Information (full name, alias, handler, e-mail, postal address, phone, country of origin, special meal
requirement, smoking habits ;-).
4) Employment and/or affiliations information.
5) Why is your material different or innovative or significant?
Please note that all speakers will be allocated 45 minutes of presentation time + 5 minutes Q+A. Any speakers that
require more time must inform the CFP committee in the course of the submission.
