2018 NSF Cybersecurity Summit for Large Facilities and Cyberinfrastructure

Date: 
20/08/2018 to 25/08/2018

The NSF cyberinfrastructure ecosystem presents an aggregate of complex cybersecurity needs (such as scientific data and instruments, unique computational and storage resources, complex collaborations) as compared to other organizations and sectors.

This community has a unique opportunity to develop information security practices tailored to these needs, as well as break new ground on efficient, effective ways to protect information assets while supporting science. The Summit will bring together leaders in NSF cyberinfrastructure and cybersecurity to continue the process initiated in 2013: building a trusting, collaborative community, and seriously addressing that community's core cybersecurity challenges.

The following is a quick snapshot of the three-days general schedule:

August 21st: Half-day and full-day training workshops

August 22nd, 23rd: Keynote and plenary presentations

The Summit seeks proposals for presentations, breakout and training sessions. It offers opportunities for student scholarships.
