      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.</p>
