GHC: Excited about presenting!

I'm getting really excited about the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing - I fly to Portland tomorrow. I've got my schedule put together [1], and the slides for our presentation posted on the GHC Wiki.

I'm thrilled to be presenting with Radia Perlman (Intel), Terri Oda (University New Mexico), and Lindsey Wegrzyn (Adobe) - such an esteemed group of women. We're presenting on modern day security attacks and how to protect your privacy online. This isn't going to be a highly theoretical talk, but helping technically savvy people understand the sometimes tricky environment we all work in every day.

We're presenting on Thursday, November 10th 11:30AM-12:30PM Convention Center – B113-115. Come and check us out!

What talks are you most interested in seeing?

[1] Unlike most conferences where you have a choice between an invited speaker track and refereed papers - the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women In Computing has EIGHT simultaneous tracks. If you haven't spent time at least narrowing down which track you want to attend for each session, you won't really have time to figure it out on the fly and will likely end up in a track that isn't as interesting to you as some of the others. Btw, you can switch to different tracks throughout the day.
