Update and Reminder – DeepSec/DeepINTEL Call for Papers is still open

René Pfeiffer/ May 27, 2020/ Call for Papers, Conference

We have added another training to the schedule. Irene Michlin (IBM) will teach you about threat modelling and how to integrate threats into your software development life cycle. Further details will be published in our blog. Speaking of content – the call for papers for both DeepSec and DeepINTEL are still open. We are looking for your contribution.

And then there is the inevitable update on DeepSec and the current pandemic situation. A lot of countries discuss how to proceed in terms of regulations, health protection, and logistics such as travel. We would very much link to official information on travel, accommodation, additional procedures during our event, and how DeepSec will look like in November. Sadly we cannot do this yet. The facts are that the Austrian hotels open on 29 May 2020 again. Restaurants already opened two weeks ago. Travel restrictions are still in place and are currently under negotiation. Given that DeepSec and DeepINTEL are international events we rely on you being here in Vienna. The chances are very good that this will happen. This is not idle talk. We used the past two months to develop ways to handle the extra measures and procedures. The reality is that not everything can be solved by technology. This has always been the case in information security. Few other areas of interest and research have to deal with ever changing environments and threats. Just as in infosec we handle the organisation of DeepSec step by step, ask a lot of questions, and proceed carefully.

Of course we will have further updates on how DeepSec and DeepINTEL will look like as soon as we have source material from the authorities. In the meantime consider submitting your content. The call for papers are open until 31 July 2020.
