HotBots is intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent progress, or practical experience in understanding all aspects of botnets. Intriguing preliminary results and thought-provoking ideas will be strongly favored. Papers will be selected for their potential to stimulate discussion in the workshop. See the original Call for Papers for more information about the workshop.

To ensure a productive workshop environment, attendance was by invitation and/or acceptance of paper submission. Check out the program and accepted papers, as well as press coverage of the workshop.

HotBots '07 was co-located with the 4th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design & Implementation (NSDI '07), which took place April 11–13, 2007.
