      This is a reminder regarding BU's  Research On Tap event On
      cybersecurity research, tomorrow 4-6pm. The event is aimed at at
      the general research community at BU. It consists of a sequence of
      ligntning talks, 4-5 minutes each, about different aspects of
      cybersecurity research at BU. See details below.

      *The Many Facets of Cybersecurity Research

          *Thursday, November 9, 2017 | 4-6 pm*

            Photonics Colloquium Room
            8 St. Mary’s Street, 9th Floor

(RISCS) <https://www.bu.edu/riscs/>/

Cybersecurity, or the study of information systems that are accessible 
to the public and yet resilient to malicious subversion, has 
become acutely relevant. This study is inherently interdisciplinary and 
multi-faceted. It covers basic issues such as engineering computer 
systems that are resilient to errors and hacking, designing algorithms 
that guarantee the privacy and authenticity of information and 
computations, social issues such as our expectations for personal 
privacy, fairness, and ubiquity in information systems, economic 
incentives for consumers and vendors, legal and political issues 
thrusting liberty against government control and international power 
struggles, and many more. Furthermore, all these aspects are 
intermingled in the design of a relatively small number of information 
systems. This Research on Tap session meeting will feature some of the 
fascinating research done at BU in this area.
