I was interested a little earlier in having a UGN paper contest, but it wasn't too well received. Hopefully there will be some people interested in this. This month's contest they will be awarding 2 security books I believe. It is hosted by InfoSecWriters, which was SWG, which was BSRF members I think. ISW is good people and a good website, so if there was any paper contest to enter, this would be it. Below you can get more info on rules, regulations, guidelines, and suggestions. If you have good ideas for a paper, but don't want to write it, just reply with the idea. BTW, if you do submit a paper, be sure to include a reference to UGN.
