World Security Pros To Converge on Japan

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 hack attacks
and defenses will be presented at the sixth annual PacSec conference.

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 2008
network security training conference. The conference will be held
November 12/13th in Tokyo at the Aoyama Diamond Hall above
Omotesando station. The conference focuses on emerging
information security tutorials - it is a bridge between the
international and Japanese information security technology

Please make your paper proposal submissions before September 1st,
2008. Slides for the papers must be submitted for translation by
October 1, 2008.

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 secwest08 [at] . 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.

Paper proposals should consist of the following information:
1. Presenter, and geographical location (country of
origin/passport) and contact info (e-mail, postal address,
phone, fax).
2. Employer and/or affiliations.
3. Brief biography, list of publications and papers.
