The 2009 Spam Conference at MIT

For reasons unknown to me the Spam Conference in MIT for 2009 is happening but is not being advertised on the usual http://spamconference.org/ URL. If you are interested in attending then you need to hunt down the page http://projects.csail.mit.edu/spamconf/.

There you'll find that the conference is taking place March 26-27, 2009 at MIT and you'll also find the Call for Papers. The submission deadline is March 9, 2009 and the topics being accepted are:
  • phishing, spyware
  • spit (spam over internet telephony)
  • spim (spam over instant messenger)
  • SMS spam
  • MMORPG spam
  • blog spam
  • trackback spam
  • image spam
  • stock pump-and-dumps
  • email con games
  • exploit marketing
  • identity theft
  • zombie bots and bot armies
  • antispam systems
  • hardware antispam countermeasures
  • software antispam countermeasures
  • wetware (a.k.a., liveware, meatware, i.e., user errors)
  • blue-ware (i.e. employing the police).
