TRAINING PROGRAM, INVITED TALKS, PANELS, WIPS, AND BOFS
In addition to the refereed papers and the keynote presentation,
the technical program will include a training program, invited talks, panel
discussions, a Work-in-Progress session (WiPs), 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.
Tutorials for both technical staff and managers will provide
immediately useful, practical information on topics such as local
and network security precautions, what cryptography can and cannot
do, security mechanisms and policies, firewalls, and monitoring
systems. If you are interested in proposing a tutorial or suggesting
a topic, contact the USENIX Training Program Coordinator, Dan Klein, by
email to email@example.com.
There will be several outstanding invited talks in parallel with the
refereed papers. Please submit topic suggestions and talk proposals
via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The technical sessions may include topical panel discussions.
Please send topic suggestions and proposals to email@example.com.
Work-in-Progress Reports (WiPs)
The last session of the Symposium will consist of Work-in-Progress
reports (WiPs). This session offers short presentations about
work in progress, new results, or timely topics. Speakers should
submit a one- or two-paragraph abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by
6:00 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, August 11, 2004. Make sure to include your name,
affiliation, and the title of your talk. The accepted abstracts
will be posted on this Web site. The
time available will be distributed among the presenters, with each
speaker allocated between 5 and 10 minutes. The time limit will be
strictly enforced. The schedule of presentations will be posted at
the Symposium and on this Web site.
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
onsite, but if you wish to preschedule a BoF, please email the USENIX
Conference Department, email@example.com. They will need the title of
the BoF with a brief description, the name, title, affiliation, and
email address of the facilitator, your preference of date, and whether
an overhead projector and screen are desired.
