TIW 2011: Third Annual Trusted Infrastructure Workshop: Advanced Summer School on Architectures for Trustworthy Computing 19-23 June 2011, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh PA, USA

Co-located with TRUST conference 2011: 4th International Conference on Trust and Trustworthy Computing

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN - access directly or from event website

*** TIW Overview ***

When IT infrastructure technologies fail to keep pace with emerging threats, we can no longer trust them to sustain the applications we depend on in both business and society at large.

Ranging from Trusted Computing, to machine virtualization, new hardware architectures, and new network security architectures, and the challenges arising from the increasing ubiquity of sensitive operations on mobile devices, trusted infrastructure technologies attempt to place security into the very design of commercial off-the-shelf technologies.

The TIW is an open innovation event modeled as a highly interactive summer school, consisting of lectures, workshops, and other lab sessions.  TIW is a collaboration between government, academia, and industry intended to benefit the cybersecurity research and development agenda by bringing together researchers in the field.  It is aimed at bringing together researchers in the field of IT security with an interest in systems and infrastructure security, as well as MS or PhD students who are new to the field.  Funding is available to support student attendance (see below).

We will have security leaders from academia, government, and industry providing lectures and leading discussions, labs, and research workshops.
