UAE Security Day – 2013

CCS-AD has been working in the past year to develop a high quality research program that addresses challenges relevant to the UAE and the region. To address this goal CRISSP-AD is organizing a day long meeting to explore research collaborations among researchers in UAE universities who work in the broad field of cyber security and privacy. The goal of this meeting is to develop ambitious and high impact research projects and to explore how they can be supported to generate research results of highest quality. More specifically, we would like to discuss how to develop joint funding proposals, build testbeds, and gain access to data that could be used for evaluating our research results.
