The GREPSEC II Workshop
May 16-17, 2015

The Ste. Claire Hotel
San Jose, Californa

An NSF and CRA-W/CDC supported workshop for women and underrepresented
groups interested in computer security research.

One of the great conundrums of computer science is how to establish
the security and trustworthiness of computers, the data they hold, and
their communications. The field has attracted brilliant innovations,
but the constantly changing technology landscape undermines
solutions. There are new opportunities for great thinkers to tackle
new problems. The first GREPSEC workshop was in 2013, and this second
workshop, like the first, is dedicated to attracting beginning
researchers and showing them the wide spectrum of areas that need

Computer security is a discipline that began with the need to control
shared resources on expensive computing engines and has grown into a
field encompassing nearly all computing devices, from heart implants
to cell phones to cloud computing. During the workshop leading minds
in this field will address graduate students, showing them the range
of knowledge and open problems that fall under the umbrella of
security and privacy.

The relaxed nature of the workshop will give students time to talk
informally with speakers about research opportunities and career
paths. Speakers will be invited based on their accomplishments in
research and their ability to mentor students from diverse

The workshop is a one-and-a-half-day weekend event in downtown San
Jose. US students accepted to the workshop will be eligible for travel
grants; we are seeking funding for a few international students. Space
is limited and an application is required of all potential
attendees. See the website
