PacSec 2010 Conference

The 8th annual PacSec conference will be held Nov 10/11 2010, at
Aoyama Diamond Hall in Tokyo, 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 will be presented at
the eighth annual PacSec conference to be discussed.

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 2010
network security training conference. The conference will be held
November 10/11th in Tokyo. 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 July 30th, 2010.
Slides for the papers must be submitted for translation by October 1,
2010 (Which, oh so rarely, happens so we are going to start asking for
them earlier :-P --dr).

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 secwest10 [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.
4) Any significant presentation and educational experience/background.
5) Topic synopsis, Proposed paper title, and a one paragraph
6) Reason why this material is innovative or significant or an
important tutorial.
7. Optionally, any samples of prepared material or outlines ready.
8. Will you have full text available or only slides?
9. Language of preference for submission.
10. Please list any other publications or conferences where this
material has been or will be published/submitted.
