IIIT - Delhi


After the grand success of the 2013 and 2014 edition of Security & Privacy Symposium held at IIT Kanpur, we now move towards its third edition which will be hosted at IIITD. Facebook event

Any average Internet user today has multiple online accounts-with Online Social media, with Third-party Cloud service providers, with On-line banking services etc. With such a lifestyle, it is always possible for an individual or a group to become vulnerable to various online security breaches and privacy threats. Researchers are constantly trying to find out solutions to these problems. We began this endeavor to bring all the topics related to security and privacy under one roof and build a close-knit community. With the Security & Privacy Symposium 2015, we continue this effort of strengthening our community of researchers, faculty, students and practitioners in security and privacy area in India.

SPS’15 features invited talks, panel discussions, and poster presentations on various aspects of security and privacy issues. The symposium seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government presenting novel research on all aspects of security and privacy in the form of a poster. This year, we are excited to invite accepted papers for presentations at the symposium. We will also have Capture the Flag hackathon this year. The students or researchers who wish to attend the symposium must register here before 3 Feb, 2015.
