Once more, it will be Troopers time.
This year, again, _everybody_ involved in the event (speakers and attendees) enjoyed themselves and could
significantly gain knowledge (and/or network with other researchers). We had great presentations, a number of
interesting tools saw the light of earth and - as was the case in 2008 with Francisco's and Federico's Evilgrade - some
groundbreaking stuff was presented at Troopers for the first time at all.
Next year's Troopers edition will be held in the beautiful city of Heidelberg (on 03/10 and 03/11 2010) and will
feature two tracks, one on attack techniques and security research, the other focused on management aspects of the
To get an idea of the event pls look at www.troopers08.org [in 2009 we've been partnering with another event and
subsequently changed the format, we'll get back to the initial structure in 2010].
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, tools or experience.
We will cover the flight costs (limited to EUR 500 for speakers from Europe and US$ 1500 for speakers from other
continents) and three 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...
