Visible to the public Symposium on the Science of Security (HotSoS)

Visible to the public 


HoTSoS is a research event centered on the Science of Security, which aims to address the fundamental problems of security in a principled manner. The ninth annual HoTSoS event will be virtually hosted by The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in April 2022.

HotSoS brings together researchers from diverse disciplines to promote advancement of work related to the science of security. The Call for Papers will be available in October 2021. The program will include presentations of already published work in security and privacy, particularly that which examines scientific foundations of trustworthy systems. Additionally, work-in-progress manuscrupts will be accepted for presentation. The papers in this category will receive early feedback on a research direction, technology, or idea before it has been fully evaluated. We will again include student presentations and also have a poster session highlighted by a poster competition.

The Science of Security (SoS) emphasizes the advancement of research methods as well as the development of new research results. This dual focus is intended to improve both the confidence we gain from scientific results and also the capacity and efficiency through which we address increasingly technical problems.

We had many excellent talks at HotSoS 2021.
The recorded keynotes, paper, and poster presentations are linked from the agenda:
