Trusted Infrastructure Workshop

June 2 - June 6, 2013
The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA

Advanced Summer School on Architectures
for Trustworthy Computing

When IT infrastructure technologies fail to keep pace with emerging threats, we can no longer trust them to protect the applications we depend on in both business and society at large. Trusted infrastructure technologies aim to provide a security foundation for the deployment of commercial off-the shelf technologies through advances in hardware, software, and networking. TIW 2013 is a premier educational meeting for graduate students with a focus on computer systems security research and research that builds on trusted computing foundations. Application is required for attendance to TIW 2013 and travel grants will be offered to many selected attendees. In addition to graduate students, TIW 2013 has space for a smaller number of more established researchers (e.g., postdocs, faculty and industrial researchers).

The school will run from Sunday afternoon, June 2 through Thursday, June 6, 2013. Attendees are expected to participate in the entire program.


TIW 2013 will be located on Penn State's University Park campus in State College, Pennsylvania. State College is accessible by air (State College Airport -- SCE) and is within a few hours' drive of New York, Washington, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh.


Registration is free for accepted participants. Participants are responsible for their travel and accommodations, but a number of travel scholarships are available to help defray a portion of the travel costs.

Application process:

Applications received by April 25 will receive full consideration for funding for travel scholarships. Applications will continue to be accepted until at least May 20 based on available space and funds. Applicants will be asked to provide the abstract of a research project (either published or in progress) in which they have been significantly involved. We particularly encourage the application of underrepresented minorities to TIW 2013. Please indicate such status in the application abstract.
