General Information

Security in computer systems and networks emerged as one of the
most challenging research areas for the future. The main aim of
FOSAD is to offer a good spectrum of current research in
foundations of security - ranging from programming languages to
analysis of protocols, from cryptographic algorithms to access
control policies and trust management - that can be of help for
graduate students and young researchers from academia or
industry that intend to approach the field.

FOSAD, that is at the 6th edition since 2000, covers one week
(from Monday 11 to Saturday 16, September 2006) and alternates
courses of 2-6 hours. FOSAD also encourages 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, e.g., London and Frankfurt AM through the low fares
airline Ryanair.
