The AsiaSecWest conference like all the SecWest conferences focuses on emerging and important information security research in all areas of internet, computing, communication and information processing.
We look for presentations that outline new threats and attacks,and information to let defenders mitigate attacks and improve countermeasures to unauthorized access, modification and misuse of computer based information, software, applications and systems. The conference focus is on all areas of applications, mobile phones, laptops, desktops, servers, network equipment, cloud deployments, and the full spectrum of infosec vulnerabilities and mitigation strategies with particular emphasis on new material and research that hasn’t been seen before. The topic array is intentionally selected to be broad, to give attendees an overview of the state of the art in infosec as well as an opportunity to explore new facets of the field they may not have considered. We aim to expand your intellect and improve your, and your company’s, security posture through technological advancement, and eagerly look for presentations that work towards this goal.
The material must be educational in nature, and vendor product pitches are usually not ranked highly or often selected. You may mention your or your company’s products, but usually this is best in the context of other informative research for our audiences, which typically consists of experienced practitioners looking to stay abreast of recent technological developments. Sales pitches or marketing decks are frowned upon, and usually product mentions or inclusions should contain significant new innovation and explanations of the technology behind it to maintain the interest level of the very technical audience - we’ve seen many a sales pitch attempted to be sneaked in only to get shredded in front of the very savvy and occasionally cynical crowd if they’re unprepared. Expect an interesting audience, with almost as much technical acumen as the folks on stage - interesting folks that make up an interactive environment to lead to synergistic discussion and collaboration is what we strive for.
Selected speakers will have their travel costs and complementary registration covered by the conference (within reason).
Presentation Review Process
Submissions are stripped of name and individual identifiers before presentation to the review panel. After debate submissions are shortlisted and re-paired with names. Chosen speakers will be contacted to confirm acceptance or clarify submissions.
The AsiaSecWest review board is a panel of several dozen industry veterans from many different representative sectors of industry that evaluate submissions based on their experience, looking for presentations on information security attacks and defences, prioritizing on new and innovative material that hasn’t been presented before. The ranking takes into account the significance and scope of the material presented, giving priority to the issues and solutions which have the greatest impact and effect on the largest and most important parts of the internet or our computing and communications landscape.
