London Security Summit February 20/21 2006

LONDON, United Kingdom -- Applied technical security
will be the focus of a new annual conference from the
organizers of CanSecWest, and PacSec, which is sponsored
by the U.K. Ministry of Defence - where the eminent
figures in the international security industry will
get together with leading European researchers to
share best practices and technology. The most
significant new discoveries about computer network
hack attacks and defenses, commercial security
solutions, and pragmatic real world security experience
will be presented in central London at the Victoria
Park Plaza hotel on February 20 and 21.

The EUSecWest meeting provides international researchers
a relaxed, comfortable environment to learn from informative
tutorials on key developments in security technology, and
to collaborate and socialize with their peers in one of the
world's hubs of IT activity - downtown London.

In addition to the usual one hour tutorials, panel sessions
and highly entertaining 5 minute "lightning" talks, this
conference will also feature a new session called
"Elevator Focus Groups". Featuring several short
sessions, these commercial presentations will showcase
new, significantly used, or dramatically innovative
products in the information security realm. Each
selected vendor will have a short 10 minute
presentation ("elevator pitch"), after which 10 minutes
of audience Q&A and interactive discussion amongst
the expert security practitioners attending will follow.
In this session both the audience and the vendors can
get valuable feedback from world leading experts.
The attendees can get user evaluations and learn
from sharing experiences about real world security
applications and the practical uses of the products - the
"focus group." Hence the name: Elevator Focus Groups.

The EUSecWest conference will also feature the availability
of the Security Masters Dojo expert network security sensei
instructors, and their advanced, and intermediate, hands-on
training courses - featuring small class sizes and practical
application excercises to maximize information transfer.

We would like to announce the opportunity to submit papers,
lightning talk proposals, and elevator focus candidate products
for selection by the EUSecWest technical review committee.

Please make your proposal submissions before December 1st 2006.
Slides for the papers must be submitted by February 1st 2006.

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 core06@eusecwest.com. Only slides
will be needed for the February paper deadline, full text
does not have to be submitted.

The EUSecWest/core06 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.

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 description.
6) Reason why this material is innovative or significant or an
important tutorial.
7) Optionally, any samples of prepared material or outlines ready.

Please include the plain text version of this information in your email
as well as any file, pdf, or html attachments.

Please forward the above information to core06@eusecwest.com to
be considered for placement on the speaker roster, have your lightning
talk scheduled, or submit your product for inclusion in the focus
