The GREPSEC IV Workshop
May 18-19, 2019
The Marines' Memorial Club
San Francisco, California

This is an NSF supported workshop for early-stage graduate students,
specifically women and members of underrepresented groups.  The
workshop is designed for those who are interested in computer security
but who have not yet chosen a definite research area.

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.
This workshop dedicated to attracting beginning researchers and
showing them the wide spectrum of areas that need attention. The
workshop has been held in odd numbered years since 2015, and
information about them is available through the website .

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 backgrounds.

The workshop is a one-and-a-half-day weekend event in downtown San
Franciso, just prior to the target="_" 
Security and Privacy Symposium .

US students accepted to the GREPSEC workshop will be eligible for
travel grants; we have funding for a few international students.
