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 here.
The CFP is open and a new conference rushes forward. The shorter version: Package up your PII/contact info that we need so we can book flights and figure out visas, put together a summary of who you are and what you want to talk about that is cool new security research, and email them to our jaded, grumpy reviewers (some of whom still use mutt so make sure you include a little ascii at least :-) at secwest13 [at] cansecwest.com before Friday, December 14th, 2012. Full details can be found on the Speakers tab.
Oh, and make sure to leave room in your schedule for the weekend after, when a lot of folks go up to Whistler. We are now trying to put together a plan for Tronapalooza 3 (Insert Witty Sub-title Here), sponsors, it's a good time to chat.
If you aren't submitting a talk, now is a great time to make lower-cost bookings. Happy Holidays.
