The first ever “Early-Careers Researchers Symposium for Cybersecurity Research” in Oxford will be occuring on the 30th September 2015, and will be held in the Tony Hoare Room, Robert Hooke Building. The idea is to get students and postdocs into the same room, to learn what is going on across the university and present their new ideas in front of a friendly (but well-informed) audience. There will even be prizes and lunch on offer.
There is also opportunity to present if you would like, as the aim is to showcase as many groups and departments as possible, whilst giving you a chance to test-drive your presentations before giving them at a conference or event.
The Current Agenda looks like this:
9:30-10:05 – Registration and Welcome
10:05-10:45 – Session 1: Security and the Social
10:45-11:30 – Panel 1: CyberSecurity – Hype or Real Threat?
11:30-11:45 – Coffee Break
11:45-12:30 – Session 2: Hardware and Software
12:30-13:30 – Lunch
13:30-14:30 – Session 3: Law, Politics and Policy
14:30-14:45 – Coffee Break
14:45-15:45 – Session 4: Comfort Zones and Jurisdictions
15:45-16:15 – Wrap up and Prizes

EPSRC have released a call in search of 3 collaborative projects between the UK and Singapore on the subject of Cyber Security. Up to £1.2 million is to be split between these 3 projects, with the aim to foster stronger research links between Singapore and the UK, and to strengthen collaboration between the nations’ best cyber security researchers.
This call is open to proposals, in any area of research, which have real potential to enhance the understanding of cyber security and strengthen relationships between researchers in Singapore and the UK. In particular projects are welcomed which address shared challenges in:
• Intrusion: Malware, exploits, intrusion detection and protection
• Data Analytics: Algorithms, machine learning, privacy, trust, and personal/aggregated data issues (‘Big Data’)
• Human Factors: Usability, behaviours, incentives, and more general economic, social and legal concerns
• Policy Aspects: Issues that directly affect policy, government or business
• Sectors and applications (e.g. Internet of Things (IoT)): Targets the concerns of particular sectors or applications.
The closing date for applications is the 30th July 2015 – please contact your research facilitation team as soon as possible if you intend to apply.
