The Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program of the National Science Foundation held a two-and-a-half-day conference of its principal investigators' from Tuesday morning, November 27, to Thursday noon, November 29, 2012 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD (in the Washington, DC area).
SaTC is an interdisciplinary program including technologists, social scientists, and educators from programs sponsored by the NSF CISE, SBE, and EHR directorates. This PI meeting will encompass all of these perspectives on cybersecurity through plenary talks, breakout sessions, posters, and informal Birds of a Feather gatherings. The technology portion of SaTC replaced the Trustworthy Computing (TC) and Cyber Trust (CT) programs, so former TC and CT PIs are now SaTC PIs.
The inaugural Science of Security (SoS) Community Meeting immediately followed the SaTC PI meeting after lunch on Thursday, November 29 and continued thru to the close of business on Friday, November 30 at the Gaylord. Government, industry, and academic members of the community will came together to discuss foundations for security science and ways individual elements can contribute to a general framework that supports the principled design of trustworthy systems, which may include multi-disciplinary contributions from mathematics, computer science, behavioral science, economics, physics, etc.
