Please submit all proposals for presentations by December 6.
This year we will continue to also have two kinds of
presentations, the normal one hour tutorials, and there will
again be a session of the popular "lightning talks": 5 minutes

talk" presenters will receive registration discounts (or rebates)
- travel and accomodations are their responsibility. "Lightning
talk" submissions should follow the same submission guidelines
below. Deadline for "lightning talk" submissions is January 17th,
The conference is responsible for travel and accomodations for
the tutorial 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
firstname.lastname@example.org. Tutorials are one hour in length. Only
slides will be needed for the April paper deadline, full text
does not have to be submitted.
The CanSecWest/core05 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 overt 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,
