This past Thursday and Friday, April 7-8, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Florida and FICS Research member, Daniela Oliveira, led the second in a two-part series of workshops aimed at promoting collaboration between US and Brazilian researchers in developing innovative solutions to current and emerging cyber security and privacy problems. Sponsored byThe US National Science Foundation (NSF), US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Brazil Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MCTI), the event encouraged top researchers from each country to share their research challenges and findings, as well as pursue opportunities to collaborate by coming together to brainstorm solutions to the open problems present in each of their areas of expertise. The program featured a keynote address by FICS Research Co-director, Mark Tehranipoor, as well as contributions from other FICS members, Yier Jin and Kevin Butler.In addition to being able to participate in break-out sessions and panel discussions, attendees heard a variety of research pitches from both academics and industry experts from each country. These proposals not only exposed the presenters to possible collaborators and/or funding opportunities, but also helped identify areas in which future collaborations could be possible.
