Technical Program Features and Organization

We continue to add diversity to the manner in which computer security applications are discussed at the conference. Paper sessions include refereed papers that describe the latest in implementations and applications-oriented research.

The conference includes two types of sessions designed to allow significant time for interaction with the audience: panel sessions are designed to provoke discussion on a controversial topic; forum sessions may report on the results of implementation activities or provide different perspectives on a single topic of interest.

Vendor presentations allow providers of products and/or services an opportunity to describe the innovative ways in which their products or services are being used to implement secure systems.

The Vendor Track will include vendor presentations on capabilities and applications of INFOSEC products to realistic civil, defense, and commercial problems. The Vendor Track will feature systems integrators, designers, and architects from the government and private sector. Displays will also be open on Wednesday during the evening reception and on Thursday during breaks between the sessions.
