Security Series

The computer security seminars (CompSecSem) are informal meetings of staff and PhD students, with the goal of broadening our knowledge and improving our understanding of computer-security-related concepts and techniques. We maintain a mailing list, complete with an archive, for E-mail discussion.

The computer security seminars are an informal weekly seminar series to discuss work in progress. The meetings take place every Thursday at 11:00 in room 245 and will typically be followed by lunch in staff house. All are welcome. An archive of meetings prior to May 2009 is available.
