   Please submit all proposals for presentations by December 6.

   This year we will continue to also have two kinds of

   again be a session of the popular "lightning talks": 5 minutes
   max (BigHook/Gong enforced) and 1-3 slides. Selected "lightning
   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 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.

   1) Presenter, and geographical location (country of
   origin/passport) and contact info (e-mail, postal address, phone,
