NDSS'03 brings together innovative and forward thinking members of the Internet community including leading-edge security researchers and implementers, globally-recognized security-technology experts, and users from both the private and public sectors who design, develop, exploit, and deploy the technologies that define network and distributed system security.

NDSS'03 provides a balanced mix of technical papers (with a strong emphasis on implementation) and panels who discuss and debate new and practical approaches to security problems that are endemic to network and distributed systems.

Perhaps best of all, NDSS'03 offers a myriad of opportunities for extended Q&A (during sessions) and "hallway" discussions in a relaxed, informal setting. This continues to be a hallmark of the SYMPOSIUM where attendance is kept to a level that fosters the maximum exchange of technical and practical information on the successful deployment of existing security solutions as well the latest on emerging, candidate solutions to unsolved problems.
