GREPSEC III Workshop
Westin San Jose Hotel
An NSF supported workshop for women and underrepresented groups interested in computer security research.
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 Jose, just prior to the 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. Space is limited and an application is required of all
potential attendees. The application instructions will be available
at this website in mid-to-late-January and will be due on March 1, 2017. Watch here for updates.
