I would like to thank the academy, and endorsement of the Great   Council, for placing us on their top sellout list among such esteemed   company. But, uh just before you engrave the gold statuette, there is   the small matter of a some mis-spellings.... so in the spirit of   selling out...  it's....

the larch.

nope. ok.

How about a small editorial - I'm told that Argentina will be blazing   into uncharted territory by instituting internet based voting in   presidential elections imminently. Most people are treating this with   remarkably little concern, IMHO. (See: http://xkcd.com/463/)  We've   taken the liberty of inviting someone who has actually looked at some   of these systems (Harri Hursti) in to inject some realism (:-) and   practical experience gained from analyzing other such plans into the   efforts as the legislation for this new system is being built. Ask   Harri for his comparison between fraud in the financial system and   electronic voting... :-)

PacSec 2008 CALL FOR PAPERS

World Security Pros To Converge on Japan

    TOKYO, Japan -- To address the increasing importance of information
    security in Japan, the best known figures in the international
    security industry will get together with leading Japanese
    researchers to share best practices and technology. The most
    significant new discoveries about computer network hack attacks
    and defenses will be presented at the sixth annual PacSec conference.

    The PacSec meeting provides an opportunity for foreign specialists  
    to be exposed to Japanese innovation and markets and collaborate
    on practical solutions to computer security issues. In an informal
    setting with a mixture of material bilingually translated in both
    English and Japanese the eminent technologists can socialize and
    attend training sessions.

    Announcing the opportunity to submit papers for the PacSec 2008
    network security training conference. The conference will be held
    November 12/13th in Tokyo at the Aoyama Diamond Hall above
    Omotesando station. The conference focuses on emerging
    information security tutorials - it is a bridge between the
    international and Japanese information security technology
    communities..

    Please make your paper proposal submissions before September 1st,
    2008. Slides for the papers must be submitted for translation by
    October 1, 2008.

    A some invited papers have been confirmed, but a limited number of
    speaking slots are still available. The conference is responsible
    for travel and accomodations for the speakers. If you have a
    proposal for a tutorial session then please email a synopsis of
    the material and your biography, papers and, speaking background
    to secwest08 [at] pacsec.jp . Tutorials are one hour in length, but
    with simultaneous translation should be approximately 45 minutes

    paper deadline, full text does not have to be submitted.

    The PacSec conference consists of tutorials on technical details
    about current issues, innovative techniques and best practices in the
    information security realm. The audiences are a multi-national mix
    of professionals involved on a daily basis with security work: security
    product vendors, programmers, security officers, and network
    administrators. We give preference to technical details and
    education for a technical audience.

    The conference itself is a single track series of presentations in a
    lecture theater environment. The presentations offer speakers the
    opportunity to showcase on-going research and collaborate with peers
    while educating and highlighting advancements in security products
    and techniques. The focus is on innovation, tutorials, and education
    instead of product pitches. Some commercial content is tolerated,
    but it needs to be backed up by a technical presenter - either giving
    a valuable tutorial and best practices instruction or detailing
    significant new technology in the products.

    Paper proposals should consist of the following information:
     1. Presenter, and geographical location (country of
        origin/passport) and contact info (e-mail, postal address,
        phone, fax).
