The 2014 NSF Cybersecurity Summit for Large Facilities and Cyberinfrastructure will take place Tuesday, August 26th through Thursday, August 28th, at the Westin Arlington Gateway near National Science Foundation Headquarters in Arlington, VA. On August 26th, the Summit will offer a full day of information security training. On August 27 and the morning of August 28, the event will follow a workshop format designed to identify both the key cybersecurity challenges facing our community and the most effective responses to those challenges.

The program committee will select a limited number of these papers for presentation at the Summit. All papers will be included in the Summit report.
