Berkeley Security Seminar: Spring 2016

The Berkeley Security Seminar strives to foster greater discussion and collaboration between researchers at Berkeley and outside researchers and engineers who work on large-scale security and privacy. Once or twice a month, we bring in an external speaker for a technical talk on Fridays from 12pm to 1pm in 380 Soda Hall, followed by individual meetings with students, postdocs, and faculty. Please see the Current Seminar Schedule for this semester's talks.

Info for Speakers

The audience for this seminar typically consists of PhD students, postdocs, and faculty in the security group at Berkeley. Given the nature of this audience, speakers should give concrete, technical talks (similar to talks at academic security conferences); expect lots of questions and technical discussion! The most well-received talks have focused on discussing one or two specific projects in depth; broad overview and recruiting talks are not an appropriate fit for this forum. If you conduct work on important security and privacy issues and are interested in giving a technical talk, please contact Grant Ho (grantho@cs)!
