Trust Logo

The Autumn 2013 TRUST Conference was held
October 9-10, 2013 at the University of California, Washington Center (UCDC). No TRUST conference is scheduled for 2014.

This event provided attendees with an opportunity to hear firsthand about the work of TRUST faculty and students-specifically activities that:

  1. Advance a leading-edge research agenda to improve the state-of-the art in cyber security and critical infrastructure protection;
  2. Develop robust education and diversity plans to teach the next generation of computer scientists, engineers, and social scientists; and
  3. Pursue knowledge transfer opportunities to transition TRUST results to end users within industry and the government.

Conference Poster Session

The TRUST Conference will include an extended session when posters of TRUST research are displayed. This is an opportunity for conference attendees to learn more about TRUST research projects and talk one-on-one with TRUST researchers.

TRUST STUDENTS/POST DOCS: If you are a TRUST student or post doc attending the conference, please plan on displaying a poster of your TRUST-related research. A poster template in PowerPoint is available here. Prior to the conference, please print your poster in color on 40" W x 30" H paper and mount it on poster board if you wish (though this is not necessary). TRUST will provide poster board, easels, and clips for mounting and displaying your posters. It is up to you to print your own poster and get it to the conference. If you do not have the capability at your university to print in color and in a large format (e.g., on a plotter) your local copy shop should be able to do the job. If you have any questions regarding the posters, please contact Carolyn Winter, the TRUST Program Manager, and she will be glad to assist you.
