Learning from Authoritative Security Experiment Results
The Learning from Authoritative Security Experiment Results (LASER) workshop series focuses on learning from and improving cyber security experimental results. LASER explores both positive and negative results, the latter of which are not often published. LASER's overarching goal is to foster a dramatic change in the paradigm of cyber security research and experimentation, improving the overall quality of practiced science.
The 4th LASER workshop will be held as an IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy Workshop (SPW 2016), co-located with the 37th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy ("Oakland"). The workshop will be held on Thursday, May 26, 2016 in San Jose, CA, USA.
This year, LASER will focus on cyber security experimentation methods and results that demonstrate approaches to increasing the repeatability and archiving of experiments, methods, results, and data. Participants will find LASER to be a constructive and highly interactive venue featuring informal paper presentations and extended discussions. To promote a high level of interaction, attendance will be limited, with first preference given to participating authors. Additional seats will be available on a first-come first-served basis.
LASER also seeks to foster good science in the next generation of cyber security researchers. As such, LASER offers a limited number of student scholarships for participation.
