[PLUG] USENIX WOOT '11 Submission Deadline Approaching

I'm writing to remind you that the submission deadline for the 5th
USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies (WOOT '11) is approaching. 

Please submit all work by May 2, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

WOOT provides a forum for high-quality, peer-reviewed papers discussing
tools and techniques for attack. Submissions should reflect the state of
the art in offensive computer security technology, either surveying
previously poorly known areas or presenting entirely new attacks.

Submission topics include but are not limited to:

* Vulnerability research (software auditing, reverse engineering)
* Penetration testing
* Exploit techniques and automation
* Network-based attacks (routing, DNS, IDS/IPS/firewall evasion)
* Reconnaissance (scanning, software, and hardware fingerprinting)
* Malware design and implementation (rootkits, viruses, bots, worms)
* Denial-of-service attacks
* Web and database security
* Weaknesses in deployed systems (VoIP, telephony, wireless, games)
* Practical cryptanalysis (hardware, DRM, etc.)

* New for 2011: "Systematization of Knowledge" (SoK) Papers and Invited
Talk Papers
Suitable papers include survey papers that provide useful perspectives
on major research areas, papers that support or challenge long-held
beliefs with compelling evidence, or papers that provide an extensive
and realistic evaluation of competing approaches to solving specific
problems. Invited talk papers are papers previously published or
accepted for publication at security conferences or workshops with
proceedings, but that will be of interest to academic and industry

Co-located with the 20th USENIX Security Symposium in San Francisco, CA, 
WOOT '11 will take place on Monday, August 8, 2011.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
