ETISS 2010

5th European Trusted Infrastructure Summer School

The fifth European Trusted Infrastructure Summer School will be hosted at Royal Holloway, University of London, from 5th to 10th September 2010.

The summer school covers a variety of fields related to creating a trusted infrastructure to cope with the demands of current and future information processing. This includes Trusted Computing, machine virtualization, new hardware architectures, and new network security architecture.

ETISS is open to all researchers and technologists in IT security with an interest in advanced learning and research discussions on next generation trusted infrastructure technologies and their role in helping secure our information society. The aim of the summer school is to provide a programme that is useful for both new and established researchers in the area. Leading industry and academic speakers will run an introductory session on the Sunday, followed by advanced lectures, practical labs and specialised workshops during the week. Also included is a visit to Bletchley Park, home of UK code breaking efforts during World War II, and current home of the 'Abwehr G312' Enigma machine.

Student bursaries are available for both masters and PhD students wishing to attend.
