The very successful PRACTICE General Assembly, Advisory Board and Technical meeting occured from 16th to18th of September, 2015 in Tallinn / Estonia. The PRACTICE Advisory Board: Moti Yung (Google), Seny Kamara (Microsoft) and Christian Cachin (IBM Research Zurich).
We encourage you to apply for our summer school on topics related to Secure and Trustworthy Computing that is organized by the EU FP7 PRACTICE project in collaboration with the Polytechnic Institute Bucharest. It takes place in Bucharest, Romania from September 23rd to 27th, 2015.
This summer school aims to introduce the participants to a large spectrum of theoretical underpinnings and practical aspects associated to secure and trustworthy computing that are vital in the context of secure cloud computing. The lectures cover a wider range of topics from advanced cryptography to system security: secure multi-party computation, searchable encryption, hardware security and new trends (e.g., Intel’s SGX), runtime attacks (e.g., return oriented programming), etc.
The primary audience are PhD students and PostDocs working on topics closely related to the focus of the school, but advanced Master students, academic researchers and industrial participants are also welcome. The application deadline is August 1st, 2015.
Please find the invited speakers and detailed information on application/registration on the website of the summer school: http://summerschool.trust.cased.de/.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
