Call for security science papers

The National Security Agency is taking nominations for its fourth annual Best Scientific Cybersecurity Paper Competition, which recognizes recent work that has made a significant contribution to cybersecurity science.

Entries must have been published between Jan. 1, 2015, and December 31, 2015, and will be judged by a panel of eight cybersecurity experts who will provide recommendations to NSA Director of Research Deborah Frincke.  Frincke, in turn, will make the final decision on awards.

"The emergence of a science supporting security can be seen in the high quality of the papers that are nominated for our award,” Frincke said. “And this progress couldn't be timelier. Securing our infrastructure gets harder, and will take the continued focus of government, industry and academia: all of us, working together, to make progress."

The deadline for entry is March 31. More information is available here.
