Festival della Scienza
[25/Oct/2018]

Event Category: 

The Genoa Science Festival is an annual event which, since the first edition in 2003, represents a national arena where the most outstanding scientists and researchers from Italy and abroad present and discuss their latest advancements. This event is also a unique occasion for public of all ages to “experience” science through several interactive laboratories and “hands on” exhibits. Today the Science Festival is recognised as one of the most important events of science communication at a European level counting over 200.000 visits each year.

18th International School on Foundations of Security Analysis and Design
[27/Aug/2018]

Event Category: 

The International School on Foundations of Security Analysis and Design FOSAD is a one-week yearly school on cyber-security held in Bertinoro (Italy) in August-September. The main aim of the FOSAD school 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.

IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E 2018)
[17/Apr/2018]

Event Category: 

The IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) conference series seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences as related to cloud computing.

European Cyber Security Challenge 2017
[31/Oct/2017]

Event Category: 

The European Cyber Security Challenge leverages on competitions from Member States and it adds a pan-European layer to them: Top cyber talents from each MS collaborate and compete against each to win the ECSC prize. Contestants solve security related challenges from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics and collect points for solving them.

During the conference there will be a NeCS closed session, on November 1st, where each ESR is going to present the status of his research.

QASA 2017, 6th International Workshop on Quantitative Aspects of Security Assurance
[14/Sep/2017]

Event Category: 

With security established as a critical ICT attribute, one also needs to be able to scientifically quantify the levels of desired or achieved security assurance. This naturally needs to occur over the entire multi-level life-cycle of systems & services, e.g., from requirements elicitation to run-time operation and maintenance. Addressing such quantitative aspects, the QASA workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the research dimensions of quantification spanning dependability, security, privacy and risk.

Open PhD Forum
[29/May/2017]

Event Category: 

The Open PhD Forum is organized for NeCS fellows to present their research topics and share their ideas with other cyber security researchers. The goal of the workshop is to provide the NeCS fellows the possibility to defend their research approaches, discuss possible alternative solutions and research directions with the researchers of different expertise and get a more comprehensive vision of their problems at this early state of their study.

Course on Research Methodology
[18/Apr/2017]

Event Category: 

Objectives and contents:
This is a general course introducing to the methods of science and research. The goal is to teach students the fundamental notions and concepts underlying scientific and technological research, with a focus on Information and Communication Technology.
