Organization announces an open call for papers and presentation proposals for the annual ShmooCon event.

The Shmoo Group is soliciting papers and presentations for the sixth annual ShmooCon. The event is slated for February 5-7, 2010 in Washington DC.

The organization said that despite being a security conference, it is soliciting submissions on “offbeat technology topics.”

From the announcement:

ShmooCon presentations should be focused on topics that are of interest to security and technology professionals who are paying attention to current trends and issues. Presentations dealing with new technologies such as cloud computing or large-scale virtualization or new takes on existing methods and techniques are of interest. Presentations that are rehashes of old talks, primers on known technologies, or vendor pitches will be rejected and summarily panned.

The 2009 conference included sessions on a variety of topics. Researchers exposed social networking threats, flaws in Google Android were presented in a mobile security session and a demonstration was given on how to easily clone smart cards — just to highlight a few.
