The Autumn 2010 TRUST Conference was held
November 10-11, 2010 on the campus of Stanford University.

This event provides attendees with an opportunity to hear firsthand about the work of TRUST faculty and students-specifically activities that:

  1. Advance a leading-edge research agenda to improve the state-of-the art in cyber security and critical infrastructure protection;
  2. Develop robust education and diversity plans to teach the next generation of computer scientists, engineers, and social scientists; and
  3. Pursue knowledge transfer opportunities to transition TRUST results to end users within industry and the government.

Conference Registration

Registration for the Autumn 2010 TRUST Conference is now CLOSED.
 

Conference Schedule

The conference will run from 8:45 AM to 6:00 PM November 10 and from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM November 11. The conference will consist of technical talks given by TRUST faculty and students, breakout sessions focused on each of the TRUST research themes, poster sessions of TRUST research projects, and social/networking events. All conference attendees are invited to a banquet the evening of November 10 at the Stanford Faculty Club. Please be sure to indicate whether or not you plan to attend the conference banquet when you register and, if you do plan to attend, your choice of entree.

A detailed Conference Agenda is available here.

Conference Poster Session

The TRUST Conference includes sessions when posters of TRUST research are displayed. This is an opportunity for conference attendees to learn more about TRUST researh projects and talk one-on-one with TRUST researchers.

TRUST STUDENTS/POST DOCS: If you are a TRUST student or post doc attending the conference, please plan on displaying a poster of your TRUST-related research. A poster template in PowerPoint is available here. Prior to the conference, please print your poster in color on 40" W x 30" H paper and mount it on poster board if you wish (though this is not necessary). TRUST will provide poster board, easels, and clips for mounting and displaying your posters. It is up to you to print your own poster and get it to the conference. If you do not have the capability at your university to print in color and in a large format (e.g., on a plotter) your local copy shop should be able to do the job. If you have any questions regarding the posters, please contact Jessica Gamble, the TRUST Program Coordinator, and she will be glad to assist you.

Conference Keynote Addresses

We are honored to have as a conference keynote speaker Dawn Song, a professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. Prof. Song is an accomplished researcher and educator recognized for her innovative work in a number of security and privacy areas. She will discuss work that is addressing challenges such as how to build secure platforms for emerging computing models and how to protect user's privacy in an increasingly complex Web environment. Among Prof. Song's many honors, she was named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow for 2010, a very select and prestigious award, so it is a privilege to have a "genius award" winner speak at the conference.
