   BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- The first annual BA-Con applied technical 
   security conference - where the eminent figures in the international 
   and South American security industry will get together and share best 
   practices and technology - will be held in Buenos Aires on September 
   30 and October 1st. 2008. 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 a series of informative tutorials.

   The BA-Con meeting provides local and international researchers a 
   relaxed, comfortable environment to learn from informative tutorials 
   on key developments in security technology, and collaborate and 
   socialize with their peers in one of South America's largest 
   metropolises. All material will be translated into both Spanish and 
   English.  Evening social activities will be planned to provide 
   personal networking opportunities.

   The BA-Con 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 exercises to 
   maximize information transfer.

   We would like to announce the opportunity to submit papers, lightning 
   talk proposals for selection by the international BA-Con technical 
   review committee.

   Please make your paper proposal submissions before July 11th, 2008.

   Some invited papers have been confirmed, but a limited number of 
   speaking slots are still available. The conference is responsible for 
   travel and accommodations 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]

   The BA-Con 2008 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.
