I'd like to congratulate Adam Laurie for winning the second Powerbook 
from the Pwn_to_Own contest as the prize for the best speaker rated by 
the audience for his presentation on RFID at CanSecWest 2007. We will 
have a similar prize for the best speaker at CanSecWest 2008, prize TBD 
(but we promise it will be cool - depending on what we find trawling 
though the electronics shops in Akihabara this year :).

  VANCOUVER, Canada -- The ninth 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 Mariott 
  Renaissance Harbourside on March 26-28, 2008.  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 20/30 minute 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 email a synopsis of the material and 
  your biography, papers and, speaking background to (please remove _'s). Only slides will be 
  needed for the March paper deadline, full text does not have to be 
  submitted - but will be accepted if available.

  The CanSecWest 2008 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. Please list any other publications or conferences where this 
      material has been or will be published/submitted.

  Please include the plain text version of this information in your 
  email as well as any file, pdf, odt, docx, ppt, odp, or html 

Please forward the above information to 
  (remove _'s) to be considered for placement on the speaker roster, or 
  have your lightning talk scheduled.
