FC - top picks for papers

My counter to Peter Wayner's article kicked up a bit of a storm, regretfully carried on in the hallowed but private halls of IFCA's internal mail forums. (Yes, I did ask when they'll put up a forum for members and others to discuss matters FC.) One thing that was curious was the volume of response; finally it twigged to me, the conference starts on Monday!

Well, I'm not there, I'm sitting in the snow. You're not there either if you're reading this. Here's my list of top picks for those talks that might have made the trip worthwhile.

But before I get onto that, I have to report: shock! horror! every paper is online ! Thank you organisers, thank you papers committee, thank you all! We can now read these papers, and fame and fortune for the authors is assured:

Protecting Secret Data from Insider Attacks
David Dagon and Wenke Lee and Richard Lipton (Georgia Institute of Technology)

Dear anonymous coward,

Yes, and don't forget to say a prayer to the patron saint of anonymity.

The discussion list has existed for years; I created it primarily at your suggestion and I'm sure I informed you of it at the time. Formerly it was called "discuss" and it was later changed to "fc-discuss" (its current incarnation). I'm considering removing it because it sees almost no traffic (a total of 4 messages in more than two years) and spam handling is getting to be a nuisance. So far it has been used for informal messages related to IFCA's FC conferences, but it is open to discussion of all things FC. The archives are public.
