The seventh Midwest Security Workshop (MSW) will be hosted at UChicago on April 13, 2019. MSW is an informal forum that promotes interaction between security and privacy researchers in the Midwest. It provides an opportunity for faculty or students to present research-in-progress and receive feedback. Note that the work submitted to the workshop will NOT be formally peer-reviewed, and the workshop is not an archival venue. Instead, submissions will be lightly reviewed for relevance to the workshop and selected directly by the organizing committee. There will be no proceedings of the workshop, so you should not be precluded from submitting this work to peer-reviewed venues for subsequent publication. We encourage work in progress or work published recently.
The program is designed primarily to promote discussion among attendees. As such, we are soliciting submissions in the following four categories. Final selections will be made by the organizing committee.
1) Poster presentations (Students and postdocs)
Students at any level and postdocs may present posters of research-in-progress or work published recently. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please register here by March 20, 2019. Selections will be made by the organizing committee and notifications will be sent on or around March 25, 2019. The recommended poster size is 30"x40", but we will be flexible. We will provide easels, tacks, and 30"x40" posterboard. You must bring your own poster.
2) Panel discussion (Faculty and postdocs)
Faculty members may offer to join our panel discussion on the future of computer security. To volunteer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 20, 2019 indicating your interest.
3) Leaders for break-out sessions (Faculty and postdocs)
Faculty members or postdocs may offer to lead one of the break-out discussion sessions. They will then lead a 90-minute discussion with between 5 and 15 participants. To volunteer, please send an email to email@example.com by March 20, 2019 indicating your interest, including the topic(s) for which you could lead a break-out session.
4) Lightning Talks (Faculty, postdocs, advanced PhD students)
Faculty members, postdocs, or advanced (post-proposal) PhD students may offer to give a lightning talk about their favorite recent results in their area of computer security. However, they may not focus on their own work or that of their close collaborators, but rather work from others in their broad research community. To volunteer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 20, 2019 indicating your interest, including the topic(s) for which you could give a lightning talk.
