Security Forum Hagenberg 2012 – CFP

The Security Forum is a yearly meeting held at Hagenberg University (this year it takes place on the 18th-19th April). Alongside presentations on the 18th, there are also a number of workshops being held the day after.

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of attending my first Security Forum event at Hagenberg University. As my girlfriend went to Hagenberg it’s one of the first places I got to really spend any time when coming to Austria, so I guess it’ll always have a special place in my heart. It wasn’t until after my Girlfriend graduated that I learnt about the Security Forum, and I’ve been trying to get to visit ever since.

The highlight (for me anyway) of last years event, was Claudio Criscone’s presentation on virtualization security. It was certainly eye-opening how badly some of these systems were configured and what you can do with an exposed admin interface. It’s a hard act to follow, but I hope for some equally good presentations at the 2012 edition.

With that in mind, the Call For Papers is now open (PDF –> EN DE) so get your papers in…

If you’re thinking of attending the conference, please let me know… always good to meet new people and see old friends!

    Hey I’ll be speaking at this years Security Forum. It would be great to meat up with someone local as I’ll be coming all the way from Chicago!

    Thank goodness… was getting worried for a moment there 😉

    All the way from Chicago eh! That’s not a short trip. I’ll certainly do my best to be there, but March and April are looking like chaotic months right now, and they’re still 4 months away! Will shoot you an email and touch base!

    I’ll be in DC for Shmoocon as well if you’re attending!
