HotSec summit is arranged with the tier-1 conference USENIX Security Symposium that was held this year at Baltimore, MD.

One of the points Prof. Lindqvist made in his talk is that the field of security needs to move beyond building and evaluating computer systems or statistical group comparison of humans, and instead move towards predictive models, as exemplified by his group’s work published at the main conference.
