- Christina Michailidou (CNR): "Risk-aware Data Usage Control Model for simplifying policies”
Coffee with Science
The main purpose of this event is to overcome the stereotype of a scientist who is confined in a laboratory, since the secondary school students could sit with them and know the importance of their work, a knowledge that may awaken their future scientific vocations.
The next Webex seminar will take place on Thursday the 9th of November 2017 at 15:00 (CET).
The speaker will be Fabio Giubilo (British Telecommunications Public Limited Company).
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.
The ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) is the flagship annual conference of the Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC) of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The conference brings together information security researchers, practitioners, developers, and users from all over the world to explore cutting-edge ideas and results. It provides an environment to conduct intellectual discussions. From its inception, CCS has established itself as a high-standard research conference in its area.
Nations, corporations, and individuals constantly need to reason about how to protect their sensitive assets in order to ensure economic growth and prosperity. Decision making for security and privacy of infrastructure and information needs a scientific framework that can handle challenges arising from modern-day heterogeneous, dynamic, and large-scale systems.
ESR14 Athanasios Rizos - CNR
The next Webex seminar will take place on Wednesday the 4th of October at 15:00 (CET).
The speaker will be Athanasios Rizos (CNR) and the title of the talk will be "Introducing Usage Control in MQTT”.
The researcher’s Night is a Europe-wide public event dedicated to science and learning. It takes place each year on the last Friday of September. Around 30 countries and over 300 cities are involved.
All the events are supported by the European Commission as a part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, to boost the careers of researchers.
The event aims to emphasize the figure of the researcher in society. The scientists will share with visitors their hobbies and their work, so that citizens can meet, for example, a doctor writing poems, enjoy music with performances by a group of scientists or participate in a historical-scientific tourist route. ESRs will present their work in order to increase its impact in society and present in an easier way how the advances of cybersecurity could contribute to an advance to people and the benefits it brings.
