NSF/IARPA/NSA Workshop on the Science of Security
Nicholas Weaver received a B.A. in Astrophysics and Computer Science in 1995, and my Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2003 from the University of California at Berkeley. Although his dissertation was on novel FPGA architectures, Nick was also interested in Computer Security, including postulating the possibility of very fast computer worms in 2001. In 2003, Nicholas Weaver joined ICSI, first as a postdoc and then as a staff researcher. His primary research focus is on network security, notably worms, botnets, and other internet-scale attacks, and network measurement.
The GameSec conference aims to bring together researchers who are
working on the theoretical foundations and behavioral aspects of
enhancing security capabilities in a principled manner. Previous
GameSec contributions included analytic models based on game,
information, communication, optimization, decision, and control
theories that were applied to diverse security topics. In addition, we
welcome research that highlights the connection between economic
Vehicle automation has progressed from systems that monitor the operation of a vehicle, such as antilock brakes and cruise control, to systems that sense adgacent vehicles, such as emergency braking and intelligent cruise control. The next generation of systems will share sensor readings and collaborate to control braking operations by looking several cars ahead or by creating safe gaps for merging vehicles.
