CFP for RSA 2011 Metricon 5.5 Event: Be There!

“Mini-MetriCon 5.5 (organized by, loosely defined Smile) is intended as a forum for lively, discussion in the area of security metrics. It is a forum for quantifiable approaches and results to problems afflicting information security today, with a bias towards specific approaches that demonstrate the value of security metrics with respect to a security-related goal. Topics and presentations will be selected for their potential to stimulate discussion in the workshop.
Mini-MetriCon will be a one-day event, Monday, February 14, 2010, co-located with the RSA Conference, the meeting room is a courtesy of RSA.
Mini-Metricon begins at 8:30am, and lunch is taken in the meeting room.
Attendance will be by invitation and limited in size.
All participants are expected to be willing to address the group in some fashion. Potential Mini-Metricon participants are expected to submit a discussion topic. Abstracts of papers, research projects, or practitioner presentations are encouraged and may result in a session allocation devoted to the submission topic. We also welcome ideas for 5-to-10-minute lightning talks on topics such as security-related data sets or key problems and challenges in security metrics. Collections of these talks are expected to result in group discussion on the submitter's topic of interest.
Submissions should be sent to  by November 12, 2010.”
Remember, the ONLY way to be there is to propose a discussion topic! There is no non-participating audience, as per event chapter Smile
P.S. Last year I had to pass on both Cloud Security Alliance meet-up and some VC meetings in order to be at the Metricon – and I didn’t regret it one bit. As you can guess, I can recognize deep awesomeness, when I see it Smile
