Science in Information Security: ROOTs 2022
The Reversing and Offensive-oriented Trends Symposium (ROOTs) was co-located with DeepSec. It is an academic workshop co-located with the DeepSec conference, and it will be in parallel with the DeepSec conference days.
We are neutral and we stick to our principles: If a topic is interesting and important we will consider a submission for our conferences. We will not lock out individuals or organizations from submitting a talk or attending our conferences and we hope, that potential visitors share our stance and posture.
Novelty, Quality & Impact
When selecting talks or trainings from our submissions we strictly make no discrimination or preference based on anything else than the quality, novelty, impact or relevance of that specific submission. Often we prefer to invite a newcomer to the stage if the content is more promising than the “safe choice” of well established truths, which are repeated all over the place. We even observe sometimes that superstars of the security circus lack brilliance, novelty and something that we really love: Controversy, a little bit of provocation and alternatives to the mainstream.
Treat Each Other With Kindness And Respect
We want to encourage individuals, organizations and countries to meet and exchange, to improve overall security and trust. Let’s create neutral ground where we can freely talk about ideas and points of view. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. And, in case you need anything - our team is happy to help you!
Facts And Not Ads
Our web site states that DeepSec is a non-product, non-vendor-biased conference event. In short this simply means that the topics discussed at DeepSec are all about facts not ads. We are looking for honest talks about security: If something breaks, tell us about it. If you can repair it, tell us about it. If you discovered something, tell us about it. That’s our goal.
Support Young Talents
We launched our special U21 initiative for young security researchers. We like to support young researchers (under the age of 21, hence U21) and enable them to present their works and results in an appropriate manner.
For topics in security intelligence and related content we offer you the DeepINTEL event. The plan for DeepINTEL 2022 is ready. Please send your submissions by e-mail to: cfp (at) deepsec (dot) net
