    CALL FOR PAPERS: CanSecWest/core03
    The fourth annual CanSecWest computer security training conference is
    scheduled to be held April 16-18 2003 in Vancouver, British Columbia,
    Submissions and presentation proposals for tutorials for this
    conference will be accepted during the month of October 2002, with
    preference given to earlier submissions.
    The CanSecWest conferences consist of tutorials on advanced 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 overt 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.
    7) Optionally, any samples of prepared material or outlines ready. 
    8) Optionally, list any software, source code or new information
       scheduled to be released and available for publicaiton on the
       conference CD.
    Please forward the above information to drat_private to be
    considered for placement on the speaker roster.
    Details of presentation logistics:
    Presenters do not have to submit full text of their materials, but do
    have to submit slides and any accompanying software/demo information
    at the deadline one month before the conference.  Presentations are
    nominally one hour in length, and exceptions must be justified. (And
    this year this will be a very strict limit, and we will try to have
    few or no exceptions.) Internet access (wireless or other) and av
    projection is provided for live demonstrations.
    Vendor display or corporate sponsorship inquiries and requests for
    attendee or exhibitor information should be directed to
