The CANSec workshop brings together researchers and practitioners in security and networking related fields in the central area of the US. The goal of the CANSec workshop is to provide a regular forum for presenting research and education activities in all areas related to computer and communication security, as well as promoting interactions and collaborations among scholars and students and between academia and industry.

The CANsec committee is seeking submissions for presentations on research and education activities relating to all practical and theoretical aspects of networking and security. As with past workshops, these will consist of oral and/or poster presentations. Students are strongly encouraged to give these talks. We also invite faculty, especially first-time attendees, to introduce your group and your research briefly (about 10 minutes). If you are interested in giving this presentation, please email to discuss details.

The deadlines for registration for the workshop and competition, as well as one-page abstract submission, are October 14th. There are student travel grants available, and the deadline to apply for those is October 15th. We expect to have decisions returned a week after the deadline.

Any and all interested participants are welcome! Please distribute this information and attached flyer to any schools or individuals who might be interested, including graduate and undergraduate students. If your school has a cyber defense club, please let them know about the competition. We look forward to seeing you in Manhattan, KS in October!
