Marshall D. Abrams Invited Essay Program
About the Program
The goal of the Marshall D. Abrams Invited Essay Program is to stimulate development of provocative and stimulating reading material for students of Information Security, forming a set of Invited Essays. Each Invited Essay will address an important topic in Information Security not adequately covered by the existing literature, with the intent that the Invited Essays will contain an exhaustive survey of the state-of-the-art. This survey should include description of the theory and practice of an Information Security problem, a history of successful attacks and defenses, and research challenges. The set of Information Security Essays should be usable as the basis for advanced undergraduate and graduate seminars as well as springboards for research.
The essayist will present his/her essay at the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC). Essays will be published in the conference proceedings and on the ACSA pages on the World Wide Web. Each essayist will receive an honorarium and complementary registration and per diem at ACSAC. If an essay is co-authored, these benefits will be provided for one person only.
