  • The call for papers for FIRST 2017 closed on 1st December 2016 (13:24 +0100)

    For the first time the call was not extended, as a satisfying number of submissions from around the world have been received in time. Actually we have a representation of over 40 countries. While the number of submissions is much higher and much diverse from the previous years there is also a considerable lower number of presentations from the US, showing that the incident response and security teams have really become international. This year's conference chair, Prof. Dr. Klaus-Peter Kossakowski, a long term veteran in the cyber security community and past chair of FIRST, is looking forward for a fruitful discussion within the Program Committee consisting of over 60 volunteers. The reviews will be carried within the next six weeks. He is confident that a very interesting program will be presented in early February 2017 to the public.
