  • The course aims at widening the student's knowledge about and understanding of different research areas connected to practical and theoretical security issues. This goal is pursued through readying, studying, explaining and discussing recent results published in well-established peer-reviewed venues in the past 2 years. The acquired knowledge will give students a perspective on the width of security-related research and possible tools to progress in and boost their own research path.
  • The course is organized as a series of seminars. Every meeting is dedicated to a different research question or article. The chosen papers must be published within the last 2 years and constitute the course literature.
