  VANCOUVER, Canada -- The eleventh annual CanSecWest applied technical 
  security conference - where the eminent figures in the international 
  security industry will get together share best practices and 
  technology - will be held in downtown Vancouver at the the Sheraton 
  Wall Centre on March 22-26, 2010. 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 CanSecWest meeting provides 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 the world's most scenic cities - a short 
  drive away from one of North America's top skiing areas.

  The CanSecWest 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, and/or 
  lightning talk proposals for selection by the CanSecWest technical 
  review committee. This year we will be doing one hour talks, and some 
  shorter talk sessions.

  Please make your paper proposal submissions before November 30th, 

  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 make your submission using our new 
  online form, available at https://cansecwest.com/submissions/. If the 
  on-line form is not available you can alternatively email a synopsis 
  of the material and your biography, papers and, speaking background to 
  secwest09 [at] cansecwest.com . Only slides will be needed for the 
  March paper deadline, full text does not have to be submitted - but 
  will be accepted if available. This year we will be opening up the 
  presentation guidelines to include talks not in English which we will 
  offer to translate for the speaker if they are not a native English 

  The CanSecWest 2010 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 
   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.
  11. If you have multiple speakers, please outline why each presenter 
      is necessary and what each is presenting.

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

  Please forward the above information to secwest09 [at]
  cansecwest.com or use our on-line submissions form at
  https://cansecwest.com/submissions/ to be considered for
  placement on the speaker roster, or have your lightning talk
  scheduled. If you contact anyone else at our organization
  please ensure you also cc the submission address with your
  proposal or use the on-line submissions system or else it may
  be omitted from the review process.


P.S. please accept my apologies if your submission feedback hasn't 
arrived yet from PacSec (but no news is good news for a few which will 
be invited to Vancouver ;-).
