This year’s event will be held August 26-28 in Arlington, Virginia and will feature Phyllis Schneck, the deputy under secretary for cybersecurity for the National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), as a keynote speaker.
CTSC is a collaborative initiative comprising representatives from IU, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. IU’s Von Welch, who also directs the university’s Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research, leads CTSC.
“We’re incredibly grateful to the NSF for their support of not only CTSC, but for the enhancement of cybersecurity throughout the scientific community made possible by these summits,” Welch said. “Bringing together representatives from large-scale projects enables us to further understand their cybersecurity needs, which in turn allows us to better serve them. This isn’t a traditional conference as much as a dialogue between groups eager to assist one another.”
