CCS Industry Track

I’m excited to be a part of the ACM’s 2005 Computer and Communication Security Conference, which has an Industry Track this year. We’re working to foster more interplay and collaboration between industry, the public sector, and academia:

The track aims to foster tighter interplay between the demands of real-world security systems and the efforts of the research community. Audience members would like to learn about pressing security vulnerabilities and deficiencies in existing products and Internet-facing systems, and how these should motivate and shape research programs. Presentation of crisply framed, open technical problems and discussion of innovative solutions to real-world problems will be especially valuable. Also of interest are: Practical and broadly informative experience with the security aspects of large-scale systems, reports on the scope and content of sponsored research programs in information security, and government or commercial requirements for future systems. Technical characteristics of novel products may be of interest, but marketing pitches are verboten.

    Good stuff! Taking my lead from:
    does it permit open publication? I sent the info on that to the conference I’m on the panel for … advocacy is good.
    Maybe we need a browser logo that says something to the effect of “Open Publication Safe!” and something else for authors that proclaims “I Publish Openly…”

    The talks given at this workshop should be available online afterwards. If people do papers, those may fall under ACM’s more restrictive practices.
