USENIX Summit on Hot Topics in Security (HotSec)

11 Aug, 2020 - 11 Aug, 2020

The 2020 USENIX Summit on Hot Topics in Security (HotSec '20) will be co-located with the 29th USENIX Security Symposium and will take place August 11, 2020, at the Boston Marriott Copley Place in Boston, MA, USA. HotSec aims to bring together researchers across computer security disciplines to discuss the state of the art, with emphasis on future directions and emerging areas. HotSec is not your traditional security workshop! The day will consist of sessions of lightning talks on emerging work and positions in security, followed by discussion among attendees. Talks are 10 MINUTES in duration—time limit strictly enforced with a gong! The format provides a way for lots of individuals to share ideas with others in a quick and more informal way, which will inspire breakout discussion for the remainder of the day. Some of the most successful HotSec lightning talks take and defend a strong position. This instigates real discussion, and we encourage you to do so!
