NSF/DIMACS Workshop for Aspiring PIs in Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace
October 15, 2012
Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, Raleigh, North Carolina
Presented under the auspices of the DIMACS Special
Focus on Cybersecurity with additional support from the National
Science Foundation under grant number CNS-1265542.
- Rebecca Wright, DIMACS Director, Rutgers University, satc-aspiring at dimacs.rutgers.edu
This one-day workshop is designed for researchers who aspire to participate in NSF's Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program. The workshop is by invitation only, and is open to people with research interests in secure and trustworthy computing who are not currently funded by SaTC or any of its predecessor programs (Trustworthy Computing and/or Cyber Trust). The goal of this workshop is to help aspiring SaTC PIs understand what NSF (and NSF review panels) are looking for in reviewing SaTC proposals, with the goal of increasing the quality of submitted proposals and, in turn, the percentage of proposals funded.
The workshop will be held in Raleigh NC at the same location as the
ACM CCS conference (see http://www.sigsac.org/ccs/CCS2012/), but is not being sponsored by that conference.
The agenda for the workshop will include:
- Brief talks by NSF Program Officers (POs) on their goals for the SaTC Program, and the opportunity for participants to pose questions to the POs.
- Several research talks by current SaTC PIs.
- A panel of current SaTC PIs on what it takes to formulate and carry out a SaTC research agenda.
- "Ice-breaker" small group discussions to foster discussion in small settings and "match-making" for researchers with related interests.
- Discussions of SaTC scope.
- Discussions of common mistakes made in proposals.
Some or all of the workshop will be videotaped and made public in order to benefit a wider audience.
