Welcome to the 16th Association of Anti-Virus Asia Researchers International Conference 2013 in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India, the largest Asia Pacific conference on anti malware. We have previously held the AVAR conference in Japan, China, Australia and this year we come back to India for the second time. AVAR (Association of anti Virus Asia Researchers) is a non-profit organization whose primary objective is to prevent the spread of and the damage caused by malicious code. AVAR (Association of anti Virus Asia Researchers) now comprises members from 15 territories, from the Asia pacific and around the world.
The threat from malware has never been higher, but our defences are stronger. I believe that the international and inter-organisational exchange and cooperation at the AVAR conferences through the years have made a significant contribution to those defences. I am sure that our 16th conference will continue that tradition. AVAR (Association of anti Virus Asia Researchers) is not just a conference for virus researchers, it is also particularly relevant to the business and technical needs of corporate IT professionals, students, educators, law enforcement, legislators and all those whose objectives are to ensure safe and secure computing and the security of the internet. I hope you can join us and benefit from this conference. I look forward to meeting you at AVAR2013 in the historic city of Chennai, the gateway to South India. Allan Dyer Chairman, Association of Anti Virus Asia Researchers (AVAR)
