We invite you to submit papers to the Workshop on Cyber Security
Experimentation and Test (CSET'09) on August 10, 2009 in Montreal,
Canada. The CSET'09 workshop is co-located with the USENIX Security

CSET '09 is bringing together researchers and testbed developers to
share their experiences and define a forward-looking agenda for the
development of scientific, realistic evaluation approaches for security
threats and defenses; it provides an important community forum for the
exploration of transformational advances in the field of cyber security
experimentation and test.

While we particularly invite papers that deal with security
experimentation, we are also interested in papers that address general
testbed/ experiment issues that have implications on security
experimentation such as: traffic and topology generation, large-scale
experiment support, experiment automation, etc. We are further
interested in educational efforts that involve security experimentation.
Please see workshop URL for a more detailed listing of topics.

Financial assistance is expected to be available for promising students
to help defray costs of attending this workshop, present their papers,
and become more integrated into this important scientific community. We
believe that attendance to present papers and to interact with
researchers and practitioners in Cyber Security Experimentation and Test
is an important component of students' education and professional
development. Moreover, students' presence at this workshop will enrich
and broaden the range of workshop activities. Procedures for applying
for a student travel grant are forthcoming.
