[] CfP: InfowarCon 2002, September in Washington,

Bei der letzten IWC waren kaum Leute aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum da -
ob sich das diesmal ändert? Wer einen Vortrag hält, kann immerhin die
Konferenzgebühren von ca. 1000 Eur sparen. Ich denke selber gerade
drüber nach. 
Ach ja: Die Jungs von White Wolf, die auch das "Live War Game"
durchführen, waren letztes Mal schon dabei und haben zwei Tutorials
"Hacking 101" und "Hacking 201" gegeben. Soll ganz gut gewesen sein.
Ansonsten ist das Niveau eher gemischt (einige schlechtere Panels, aber
auch ein paar extrem gute), aber die Veranstaltung ist eine erstklassige
Gelegenheit zum Networking.

Your Audience is looking for Real-World Solutions to Real-World
Problems, as well as being made aware of future possibilities. Your
