The forum has provided the stage for such speakers as Bruce Schneier (the legendary cryptography expert), Travis Goodspeed, Karsten Nohl, Marc "van Hauser" Heuse, Ruslan Gattarov, Datuk Mohd Noor Amin (IMPACT, UN).
The first stage is until January 30, 2015. Don't waste your time — the number of final talks is limited.
More than 2,500 experts from 18 countries visited PHDays IV in spring 2014. More than 3,000 participants are expected in 2015. You'd better learn the researches presented last year.
Your honors and certificates aren't of much importance. What we value is a new approach to threatening information security issues. The review board accepts applications from both recognized information security experts and novice researchers.
