General Information

Security in computer systems and networks is emerging as one of the most
challenging research areas for the future. The main aim of the school is
to offer a good spectrum of current research in foundations of security,
ranging from programming languages to analysis of protocols, that can be
of help for graduate students, young researchers from academia or industry
that intend to approach the field.
The FOSAD series started in 2000 and last edition was in 2004. This year
the school covers one week (from Monday 19 to Saturday 24, September 2005)
and alternates monographic courses of 4/6 hours and short courses of 2/3
hours. We also encourage presentations given by those participants that
intend to take advantage of the audience for discussing their current
research in the area.


The school is organized at the University Residential Center of Bertinoro,
situated in Bertinoro, a small village on a scenic hill with a wonderful
panorama, in between Forli' and Cesena (about 50 miles south-east of Bologna,
15 miles to the Adriatic sea). The cheapest way to travel is by plane to
Forli' airport (the secondary airport of Bologna), which is daily connected
to London and Frankfurt AM through the low fares airline Ryanair.
