The CfP for the 2nd USENIX Workshop on Large-Scale Exploits and Emergent Threats (LEET ‘09): Botnets, Spyware, Worms, and More is up at:
LEET ‘09 will be held on April 21, 2009 in Boston, MA immediately before the 6th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI ‘09), which will take place April 22–24, 2009.
- Submissions due: January 16, 2009, 11:59 p.m. EST
- Notification of acceptance: March 2, 2009
- Electronic files due: March 30, 2009
This will be the second edition of LEET, which had evolved from the combination of two other successful workshops, the ACM Workshop on Recurring Malcode (WORM) and the USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Understanding Botnets (HotBots). These two workshops have each dealt with aspects of this problem. However, while papers relating to both worms and botnets are explicitly solicited, LEET has a broader charter than its predecessors. We encourage submissions of papers that focus on any aspect of the underlying mechanisms used to compromise and control hosts, the large-scale “applications” being perpetrated upon this framework, or the social and economic networks driving these threats.
