Invited Talks, Panels, Poster Session, Rump Session, and BoFs
In addition to the refereed papers and the keynote presentation, the technical program will include invited talks, panel discussions, a Poster Session, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs). You are invited to make suggestions regarding topics or speakers in any of these sessions via email to the contacts listed below or to the program chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Invited talks will be held in parallel with the refereed paper sessions. Please submit topic suggestions and talk proposals via email to email@example.com by Thursday, February 16, 2012, 11:59 p.m. PST.
The technical sessions may include topical panel discussions. Please send topic suggestions and proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for panel proposals is Friday, April 6, 2012, 11:59 p.m. PDT.
Would you like to share a provocative opinion, interesting preliminary work, or a cool idea that will spark discussion at this year's USENIX Security Symposium? The poster session is the perfect venue to introduce such new or ongoing work. Poster presenters will have the entirety of the evening reception to discuss their work, get exposure, and receive feedback from attendees.
To submit a poster, please submit a draft of your poster, in PDF (maximum size 36" by 48"), or a one-page abstract via the poster session submission form by July 2, 2012, 11:59 p.m. PDT. Decisions will be made by July 12, 2012. Posters will not be included in the proceedings but may be made available online if circumstances permit. Poster submissions must include the authors' names, affiliations, and contact information. At least one author of each accepted poster must register for and attend the Symposium to present the poster.
We will host a rump session on the evening of Wednesday, August 8, 2012. This is intended as an informal session for short and engaging presentations on recent unpublished results, work in progress, or other topics of interest to the USENIX Security attendees. As in the past, talks do not always need to be serious. To submit a rump session talk, email email@example.com by Wednesday, August 8, 2012, at 11:59 a.m. PDT.
Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions (BoFs)
Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs) will be held Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. Birds-of-a-Feather sessions are informal gatherings of persons interested in a particular topic. BoFs often feature a presentation or a demonstration followed by discussion, announcements, and the sharing of strategies. BoFs can be scheduled on-site or in advance. To preschedule a BoF, please send email to the USENIX Conference Department at firstname.lastname@example.org with the title and a brief description of the BoF; the name, title, affiliation, and email address of the facilitator; and your preference of date and time.
