The 18th Annual EICAR Conference to be held on May 11th and May 12th 2009, with a pre-conference program on May 9th and 10th at the Steigenberger Hotel in Berlin, Germany.
The conference brings together experts from industry, government, military, law enforcement, academia, research and end-users to examine and discuss new research and development in anti-virus, malware, e-security, e-forensics, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Management and legal aspects of the information technology.
While the EICAR conference traditionally covers all aspects of malicious code and the development of "anti" measures, the conference 2008 shall also concentrate into the usability and issues related to independent testing of Anti-Virus (Malware) products.
The rapid evolution of technologies requires adaptation of human behaviour and in consequence leads to new laws and regulations of direct relevance to the user. The EICAR conference 2009 will therefore also concentrate on legal aspects and user liability.
This call for papers invites therefore the submission of full papers and abstracts on one or more topics devoted to malware and anti-malware technologies, which may include but are not restricted to:
