The BA-Con 2008 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 new
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
