text version of the information along with any other supporting

The EUSecWest 2010 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 new
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.

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.
4. Any significant presentation and educational experience/background.
