Centre to host Cybersecurity Early Careers Researchers Symposium

The 2nd Annual Cybersecurity Early Careers Researchers Symposium, organised by the Department of Computer Science, will take place on Friday 30 September 2016 at the Oxford e-Research Centre.

This event is conducted through Cyber Security Oxford and offers a perfect opportunity for University of Oxford students, RAs and Postdocs to showcase their work. Submissions are encouraged from a wide range of disciplines, including computer science, human-computer interaction, social science, psychology, law, geography, politics, mathematics, and virtually any other field imaginable. This relaxed and multidisciplinary event offers a perfect setting for meeting colleagues from other departments. An exciting keynote speaker has been booked, and a number of great prizes will be on offer during the day.

Streams will be split in four ways, giving everyone the chance to present ideas, regardless of their completeness. Participants can present 15-minute full presentations, 5-minute lightning talks, academic posters or live demos.

Submissions should take the form of simple 200-word micro-abstracts, uploaded to EasyChair by Friday 9 September.

Registration for the event closes on Monday 19 September, with no registration fee. Refreshments will be served throughout the day.

Professor David Wallom is a member of the GCHQ recognized Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security, one of a number of initiatives outlined in the UK Government's National Cyber Security Strategy 'Protecting and Promoting the UK in a Digital World'. The Strategy describes how Government is working with academia and industry to make the UK more resilient to cyber attacks.

In collaboration with a range of departments across the University, the Centre of Excellence has become the nucleus of the Cyber Security Oxford network, which incorporates and extends the work of academics drawn from over 20 departments and units in the University, including the Oxford e-Research Centre, the Department of Computer Science, and the Oxford Internet Institute. The network is a principle point of contact for those inside and outside the University seeking to engage with leading research in cyber security, and actively develops new partnerships to embrace the range of disciplines necessary to make a significant impact in the improvement of theory, technology, techniques, policies and practice in cyber security.
