CSE 590Y (Fall 2020): Cryptography and Security for Social Good
This quarter for CSE 590Y (typically the security seminar), we are bringing together cryptography, security, and privacy for a seminar on "Cryptography and Security for Social Good".
Broadly, we will discuss cryptography and security work that considers (or how it should better consider) marginalized or vulnerable communities. We welcome anyone with a background in any (not necessarily all!) of those or related fields, in the hopes that we can create some interdisciplinary discussion and connections.
The seminar will occur on Wednesdays, 2:30-3:20pm, via Zoom. For email updates, please register for CSE 590Y, or let one of us know that you plan to attend without registering (so we can add you to the mailing list).
