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!

DeepSec CFP

My good friends over at DeepSec are currently looking for papers for the upcoming DeepSec 2011 conference in Vienna, Austria. The conference itself is taking place Nov 17th-18th, with training being offered on the 15th-16th.

We are happy to invite you to the fifth DeepSec In-Depth Security Conference from November 15th to 18th at the Imperial Riding School Renaissance Hotel in Vienna.

The In-Depth security conference will include two days of security talks during the conference and two days of trainings, covering the latest topics in network and IT security. There will be also a comprehensive social program around the event.

DeepSec IDSC is a non-productnon-vendor-biased conference event. Our aim is to present the best research and experience from the fields’ leading experts.

A first for DeepSec this year is the inclusion of the U21 (Under 21) which allows people under the age of 21 to attend the conference free in exchange for showing off some of their research in the breaks or as lightning talks. I think this is a great way to engage the next generation of hackers, so really look forward to seeing what comes of it.

DeepSec will sponsor young security researchers by providing an opportunity to attend the conference for free. In order to take advantage of this offer you have to submit a description of your own security research project. Your work will be an exhibit during the breaks. You have to present your project in the lounge area. Optionally you can do a lightning talk about your work (roughly 5 minutes).

Last years DeepSec was great fun, with an amazing collection of talks. This year will only be better. So get your papers in now… Vienna is a lovely town 😉
