Interact with the security community
CanSecWest, the world's most advanced conference focusing on applied digital security, is about bringing the industry luminaries together in a relaxed environment which promotes collaboration and social networking. The conference lasts for three days and features a single track of thought provoking presentations, each prepared by an experienced professional and talented educator who is at the cutting edge of his or her field. We give preference to new and innovative material, highlighting important, emergent technologies, techniques, or best industry practices.
The conference is single track, with one hour presentations over the duration beginning at 9:00 a.m. The registration fee includes the catered meals, and there will be a vendor display and lounge/eating area, where wireless internet access will be available (as well as in the speaking theater). The conference discount hotel room booking system can be found https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/CSW2015">here.
So after a dozen years or so organizing conferences, you get the urge to pull levers and try experimenting with things. So this year I sent out the CanSecWest CFP only over Twitter, and G+ publicly. Just curious as to the adoption and information dispersion rate, and some estimate of the attention these newer channels are getting.
So after this experiment I hear about people having submissions and missing the CFP. So for my control set, here is the normal announce message to different e-mail lists. We'll do a Second CanSecWest CFP, but a brief one. Send us your proposal by the end of Monday next week, December 5, 2011.
The questions and information needed is the same as usual (see website), also for my curiosity could you include:
12. Where did you hear about the CFP from?
