Visible to the public First (2012) Science of Security Community Meeting

The National Security Agency held its first Science of Security (SoS) Community Meeting on November 29-30, 2012 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

Over 150 leaders from government, industry, and academia met to discuss new and ongoing programs in security science being pursued by U.S. government research sponsors, and an exciting new Cybersecurity Research Institute recently established in the U.K. The presentations included work in a broad range of disciplines including mathematics, computer science, behavioral science, economics, physics, and biology. The meeting introduced a new Science of Security Virtual Organization website designed to promote research collaboration and community development. NSA's Director of Research concluded the meeting with the announcement of an NSA sponsored Cybersecurity Science Paper Competition. More details on the meeting can be found at
