Call for Articles – DeepSec Proceedings

René Pfeiffer/ May 14, 2013/ Administrivia, Security

While our Call for Papers for DeepSec 2013 and DeepINTEL is still open, we have a Call for Articles for all our past speakers ready. It’s our pleasure to inform you that we will publish a book with proceedings about past and present DeepSec topics. It will be a summary, a factual overview on what’s been going on at our annual event, from 2007 – 2012, a collection of the most compelling talks and captivating topics we’ve featured at our conference so far. To make this book a bummer we need your help.

We want you to send us the abstracts of the talk you held at DeepSec – and we ask you to open up your topic once again.

  • What’s been going on in the very special field you held your talk about?
  • Have there been some new developments?
  • Is your talk still up to date or does it seem kind of antiquated to you? If so, why? This is your chance to give an update.

Since we choose the talks for DeepSec very carefully we believe every topic is well worth thinking about once again and worth updating.

We need your input in the form of an academic publication: Please send us the original content of your talk in the form of an article, including a clearly separated endorsement where you write about your current thoughts on your special topic. We also have some formal requirements:

  • Your manuscript must be written in Microsoft® Word, Open/Libre Office, LaTeX (a style file will be provided).
  • Microsoft® Word/Open/Libre Office files will be converted to LaTeX, so please use plain vanilla styles with proper formatting. We will provide style guides for your chapters.
  • Proper editing and proof reading must be done before submission.
  • Please include a short biography and a contact email that can be published.
  • If you held multiple talks at multiple DeepSec conferences, you can submit each one as a chapter.

We also plan to publish proceedings for future DeepSec conferences. Title and Abstract for your chapter needs to be submitted until June (end of Juna at latest). Manuscript needs to be submitted until the 1st of August, 2013. The editors of the proceedings are René ‘Lynx’ Pfeiffer and Stefan Schumacher. For those who do not know them, here is a short description.

René Pfeiffer is part of the DeepSec conference organisation team and lectures information security at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien. He has a solid background in system administration and researches selected topics of information security such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), communication protocols and configuration convergence of distributed systems.
