Visible to the public Symposium and Bootcamp 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 sixth annual HoTSoS event, scheduled for April 2-3, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee, will bring together researchers from diverse disciplines to promote advancement of work related to the science of security. The conference will feature a mix of invited talks, panels, tutorials, and refereed papers to be published by ACM.

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 look forward to keynote presentations from Kevin Hamlen (University of Texas at Dallas), Trent Jaeger (The Pennsylvania State University), and Rebecca Wright (Barnard College and Rutgers University). For more information about the program, please see:
