Panel: Summary of ACSAC 2018 Workshops
Wednesday, 5 December 2018
13:30 - 15:00
Representatives from this year's pre-conference workshops will presents an overview of their respective workshops and share highlights, key discussions, and important outcomes.
The workshop is intended to focus on novel applied and theoretical work that combines machine learning techniques such as reinforcement learning, adversarial machine learning, and deep learning with significant problems in cybersecurity. We consider both offensive and defensive applications of machine learning to security, with narrow topics grouped into six major topic areas presented over two days.
Workshop Co-Chairs: Dr. Michael Clifford, Noblis, Dr. Bhavani Thuraisingham, UT Dallas, and Dr. Latifur Khan, UT Dallas
The goal of this workshop is to explore new offensive and defensive techniques that are applicable to Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems (ICS), which monitor and control a wide range of industrial and infrastructure processes and face significant threats from internal and external actors as they become increasingly interconnected with corporate and other Internet-visible networks.
Harvey Rubinovitz, The MITRE Corporation, and Adam Hahn, Washington State University, General Co-Chairs:
Irfan Ahmed, Virginia Commonwealth University, Program Chair
The workshop will focus on how to protect software from tampering, reverse engineering, and piracy as well as techniques of program analysis that support reversing engineering and program understanding. It provides a discussion forum for researchers that are exploring theoretical definitions and frameworks, implementing and using practical methods and empirical studies, and those developing new tools or techniques in this unique area of security.
Sébastien Bardin, CEA LIST, France, and Natalia Stakhanova, University of Saskatchewan, Canada, Program Co-Chairs
J. Todd McDonald, University of South Alabama, USA, General Chair
The workshop intends to stimulate an exchange of ideas and experiences on how to design systems that are secure in the real world where they interact with non-expert users. It aims at bringing together experts in various areas of computer security and in social and behavioral sciences.
Theo Tryfonas, University of Bristol, and Debi Ashenden, University of Portsmounth, Programme Chairs
Giampaolo Bella, University of Catania, and Gabriele Lenzini, University of Luxembourg, Workshop Organizers
