The Midwest Security Workshop (MSW) began as a series of five workshops held from 2006–2008 with the goal of bringing together researchers in computer security and privacy from throughout the Midwestern United States. After a decade-long hiatus, MSW will return on April 14, 2018 at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. The workshop is open to researchers (including faculty and students) who work on topics related to security and privacy and are based in the midwestern United States, broadly defined.

MSW 6 will be held April 14, 2018 from 10:00am to 6:00pm at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign! We will be facilitating the process of organizing workshop attendees to go to dinner together (on their own) following the conclusion of the formal program.

UPDATE (3/15): A total of 188 researchers from 13 different universities across the midwest have registered for MSW 6! This total encompasses 37 faculty members, 5 postdocs, 140 students, 4 staff members, and 2 visiting scholars.

To encourage broad participation, registration for the workshop is free. We will provide a boxed lunch for each participant on the day of the workshop. However, participants are on their own for covering the cost of their other meals (breakfast and dinner), transportation to UIUC, accommodations (if applicable), and other logistics.

The deadline to register for MSW 6 was on March 14th, 2018. We are considering additional registration requests on a case-by-case basis by email.

Regardless of whether you can attend MSW 6, please join our mailing list.
