The Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) Program of the National Science Foundation is developing a new vision document that will be used to craft future calls for proposals and shape the next decade of cybersecurity research among the NSF community. This effort is co-chaired by Patrick McDaniel of University of Wisconsin–Madison and Farinaz Koushanfar of University of California San Diego
The first step in this process is a two-day workshop to assess the key research challenges and opportunities of the cybersecurity and privacy community for the next decade. We encourage experts in industry, academia and government to participate by submitting topics and volunteering to participate in the workshop on March 8-9, 2023 in Richardson, Texas.
People are encouraged to submit topics for the workshop as well as nominations to participate. The deadline is February 10, 2023.
