Black Hat CFPs now open: Europe and Asia

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


The Black Hat Briefings was created to fill the need for computer security  
professionals to better understand
the security risks to information infrastructures and computer systems.

What makes Black Hat Briefings different? The speakers. We select the  
speakers that are doing unique
research, writing the security tools, or finding the bugs. No vendor  
pitches. Just straight talk from people
who are experts in their chosen field of study.  This year our Europe and  
Asia shows will be held back-to-back,
potential presenters are invited to submit CFP's to both shows.

If you have original research, new tools, or a fresh perspective on an old  
problem, we encourage you to
submit a presentation.  By presenting at the Black Hat Briefings you have  
the opportunity to both influence
your peers and to contribute to the advancement of the state of the art.  
We are striving to create a high-end
technical conference and any talk that helps reach this goal will be given  
extra attention.

Topics of discussion will include zero day attacks and defenses, deep  
knowledge, policy, management, and
the law.  If you have a speech idea you believe is of Black Hat caliber,  
do not hesitate to submit it, even if it
does not appear to match an existing track.

If you have never been to a Black Hat event, please check out our past  
presentations on-line to get a feel for
what we are looking for:

Please do not wait to submit.  Presentations are selected and evaluated in  
the order received. Full and
detailed explanations are available at:
