(Page formatting cheerfully borrowed from CS 7934.) The spring 2015 offering of CS 7936 will focus on reading and discussing papers from recent security conferences on a variety of topics.
The goal is to increase participants' familiarity with recent and important results in the area of computer security & privacy research. Attendees will read and discuss papers from recent top-tier security conferences. Attendees will typically discuss one paper each week. Papers will be selected by presenters based on their interests.
Students may enroll for one (1) credit. Although the University lists the course as “variable credit,” the two- and three-credit options are not currently available.
Students enrolled in the seminar are expected to read the papers prior to the seminar. Additionally, students are expected to sign up to lead the discussion on one or more seminar meeting. Leading the disucssion means:
Upcoming and recent conference proceedings are good sources of papers for discussion. Below are links to some relevant conference series.
