ACSAC is an internationally recognized forum where practitioners, 
researchers, and developers in information system security meet to learn 
and to exchange practical ideas and experiences.

The Technology Blitz Session is a fast-paced forum for disseminating 
leading edge security solutions quickly without the necessity for lengthy 
dissolution. Each abbreviated work is be summarized in a 10 minute 
presentation followed by a 5 minute question and answer period during the 
conference. Thus, allowing for rapid articulation and immediate feedback 
from academic and industrial colleagues.

Prospective authors are invited to submit extended abstracts for peer 
review. Accepted abstracts and presentation slides and will be published on 
the ACSAC web site after the conference.

Successful Technology Blitz extended abstract submissions represent the 
most current activities in practical security research and are no more than 
2-3 pages in length using a standard IEEE format (about 1800 words in 
length).  Papers should describe only the main technical innovations, any 
accomplishments to date and lessons learned.
