0. About HITCON Community 2019

Hacks in Taiwan (HITCON) Community is a highly technical security conference held annually in Taiwan, targeting the information security community.

1. This year’s theme

The theme for this year’s HITCON Community is “Trust in the Untrusted World”. Trust has always been a central theme in information security. Throughout the years, there are countless incidents that shows the critical role that trust plays, from the certificates that were stolen to sign APT malwares, to the widespread fake news problem. New developments in our industry also warrant our revisit to the trust theme. With so many things that we have to trust in the highly untrusted world of Internet, we welcome you to explore these topics with us at this year’s HITCON Community.

2. The call for paper

We welcome anyone to submit their information security related research paper, especial those that are trust related.

The length of the talk should be approximately 50 minutes and leaves some room for Q&A.

Also, please provide as much information as possible in the submission. Submissions with no slides and very vague descriptions will likely be rejected.

The papers will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

3. How to submit

Please apply for an account at https://cfp2019.hitcon.org and submits through the website before the deadline.

Please direct all enquiries to cmt-agenda[at]hitcon.org
