GameSec Technical Program Overview

Social Program

GameSec 2010 social program aims to bring researchers working on similar topics together and grow our community. The social program consists of

  • Welcome reception on Sunday November 21st, the evening before the conference between 19:00-21:00, in the Skyline Cafe on the 20th floor of the TU high-rise building, with a wonderful view of Berlin.
  • Conference dinner will be on Monday November 22nd evening from 19:30-22:00 in the elegant restaurant Brasserie am Gendarmenmarkt. The restaurant is located at one of the most outstanding places, in the historical middle of Berlin. Free transportation will be provided from near conference location (at Ernst-Reuter-Platz) and back. Details will be announced during the conference. Note: unfortunately, student registrations do not include conference dinner.

Plenary Talks

GameSec 2010 includes plenary talks by two very distinguished researchers, Nick Bambos (Stanford Univ.) and Jean-Pierre Hubaux (EPFL). (Unfortunately, Prof. Silvio Micali has informed us on Nov. 18th that he will not be able to give a plenary talk as originally planned due to unforseen health reasons. We apologize for this last minute change).

  • Title: A Risk Management View to Information Security
    Plenary Speaker: Prof. Nick Bambos (Stanford University, USA)

    Abstract: The scale and complexity of information technology infrastructures increase rapidly; so is our dependence on information services deployed on them. In this talk, we develop the case that a risk management approach is key for coping with the complexity and diversity of vulnerabilities of such infrastructures and services. If ignored, they can have potentially catastrophic consequences. We first discuss some risk modeling, assessment and mitigation challenges. We then argue that a systematic approach - based on games and decisions, control and optimization - can provide a solid foundation for addressing key issues. It can also inform and advance best practices in industry.

  • Title: Designing Network Security and Privacy Mechanisms: How Game Theory Can Help
    Plenary Speaker: Prof. Jean-Pierre Hubaux (EPFL, Switzerland)
