World Security Pros To Converge on 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 and 
    defenses will be presented at the sixth annual PacSec conference.

    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 2008 
    network security training conference. The conference will be held 
    November 12/13th in Tokyo at the Aoyama Diamond Hall above 
    Omotesando station. The conference focuses on emerging information 
    security tutorials - it is a bridge between the international and 
    Japanese information security technology communities..

    Please make your paper proposal submissions before September 1st, 
    2008. Slides for the papers must be submitted for translation by 
    October 1, 2008.

    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 
    secwest08 [at] pacsec.jp . 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,
