Announcement of GREPSEC II: computer security workshop for women and
members of underrepresented groups (students)

Security research is a great field that has not attracted women and
minorities in any great numbers, despite the wonderful opportunities
available.  We'd like to change that — and so does NSF, CRA-W/CDC, and
Google.  We're pleased to announce GREPSEC, a computer security workshop
for women and underrepresented groups.  Come and learn about why great
minds are drawn to security.

GREPSEC is a day-and-a-half-long workshop scheduled for May 16-17, 2015 in
San Jose, occurring just prior to the annual IEEE Symposium on Security and
Privacy.  The workshop will consist of a number of talks by leading
academic and industry researchers in computer security.  (A list of
speakers may be found at: http://www.ieee-security.org/grepsec/schedule.html.)
The workshop will include a number of research talks as well as panels
looking at research from various perspectives including information
assurance from a hardware and software point of view, picking good research
problems, and privacy from both a policy and technical perspective.  There
will be breaks to afford students time to meet informally with the

Funding for this meeting has been provided by the US National Science
Foundation, a grant from CRA-W/CDC, and Google, and travel funding will be
available for graduate students at US institutions. A small amount of
funding exists for students at foreign institutions.  If space permits, we
may admit some advanced undergraduates.

Application information can be found at:
http://www.ieee-security.org/grepsec/apply.html .  Applications are due
February 28. Applicants will be informed by March 6 whether they have been
admitted and the size of their travel award.  Workshop participants are
encouraged to attend the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy, which will
begin on May 18.  We regret that workshop travel funding cannot cover
participation in the IEEE Symposium.

If you have questions about the workshop, please direct them to one of
Susan, Hilarie, or Terry (susan.landau at privacyink.org,
hilarie at purplestreak.com, tbenzel at isi.edu). We encourage all eligible
students to apply.

Please feel free to share this mail with potential candidates.
