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 attacks 
will be presented at the ninth annual PacSec conference to be discussed.

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 2011 network 
security training conference. The conference will be held November 9/10th in 
Tokyo. 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 August 3rd, 2011. Slides for 
the papers must be submitted for translation by October 1, 2011 (Which, oh so 
rarely, happens so we are going to start asking for them earlier :-P --dr).

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 "secwest11 [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.
