Call for Presentations 2012 Rochester Security Summit (RSS)
October 9-10, 2012
Rochester, NY, USA
We are pleased to announce that the seventh annual Rochester Security Summit is October 9-10, 2012 in Rochester, NY at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Rochester. This Summit is the premiere IT security event in Upstate/Western NY and has been held since 2005. Last year's Summit was attended by more than 200 attendees, including executives from Fortune 500 firms along with information security professionals, developers and software architects.
The conference is again looking for top speakers with dynamic relevant presentations. This year there will be three tracks: Business Professional, Health-Care Professional, and Technical Professional.
All three tracks will consist of presentations in 50-minute blocks, including Q&A. Presentations may be allowed to span two blocks to accommodate topic exploration to different depths if the committee sees the merit in the longer time allotment.
If you believe you have a significant research or technical presentation that the security community would value and enjoy hearing, we invite you to submit your presentation topic for consideration.
The Rochester Security Summit is not a vendor fest. There is zero tolerance for heavy commercial content in presentations. Presenters are expected to avoid any marketing that is not immediately backed up with rationale for its inclusion.
