================================================== ========================

ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

LINUX SECURITY SUMMIT 2010

================================================== ========================


DESCRIPTION

The Linux Security Summit is a technical forum for collaboration
between Linux developers, researchers, and end users. Its primary aim
is to foster community efforts in analyzing and solving Linux security
challenges.

The format of the summit will be:

* Selected brief presentations
* Lightning talks
* Q&A panel sessions


DATES / LOCATION

The Linux Security Summit for 2010 will be held on the 9th of August in
Boston, USA. It will be co-located with LinuxCon [1], at the
Renaissance Boston Waterfront.

Note that Linux Security Summit attendees must be registered to attend
LinuxCon. See the LinuxCon site for details on registration, travel,
and accommodation.

http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/linuxcon

The CFP is currently open, and will close on 4th of June (see below).

Accepted speakers will be notified by 9th of June.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The event is open to all registered LinuxCon attendees.

You do not have to be a "security person" to attend -- we're seeking a
diverse range of attendees, and welcome the participation of general
developers, researchers, operations, and end-users.

There will be several panel sessions in addition to brief, selected
presentations, with a strong focus on discussion.


CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The program committee currently seeks proposals for:

Presentations:

Brief technical talks in 30 minute slots, including at least 10
minutes of discussion (i.e. the maximum length of the presentation
alone is 20 minutes). Papers are encouraged, and slides should be
minimal.

Presentation abstracts should be approximately 150 words in length.


Panel discussion topics:

If you'd like to see an issue discussed in a Q&A style panel, send it
in. Note that this may result in you volunteering to participate in
a panel.


Topic areas include, but are not limited to:

* System hardening
* Access control
* Cryptography
* Integrity control
* Hardware security
* Networking
* Storage
* Virtualization
* Desktop
* Tools
* Management
* Case studies
* Emerging technologies, threats & techniques

Proposals must be submitted before the end of June 4th, 2010.

(That's not far away!)

Accepted speakers will be notified by June 9th, 2010.

We will probably receive more proposals than can be accommodated. If
your talk is not accepted, you may wish to give a lightning talk or
raise a topic in a discussion panel.

Lightning talks and discussion panel agendas will be coordinated closer
to the event on the event mailing list, and on-site.

Proposals should be submitted in plain text via email to the program
committee at: lss-pc (_at_) ext.namei.org


MAILING LIST

Everyone planning to attend should join the event mailing list:
