Generative AI for Security


Security Management for Open Source Software


Zero Trust Architecture


Security and Privacy issues when using Generative AI


Threats Unique to Research in Cyberinfrastructure


Supercomputing/HPC Specific Security Challenges


Regulated Research Security, Privacy and Compliance (HIPAA, CMMC, FAR, etc)


Cloud Security


Network Security and Defense


Specialized HPC for Compliance (HIPAA, CUI, DBGap)

More detail and guidance on submitting proposals can be found here:

The Summit provides a forum for National Science Foundation (NSF) funded scientists, researchers, cybersecurity, and cyberinfrastructure (CI) professionals and stakeholders to develop community and share best practices. The Summit will offer attendees training sessions and workshops with hands-on learning of security tools, security program development and compliance for research. 

The deadline for proposal submissions is Jun 23, 2024

Thank you on behalf of the Program and Organizing Committees. We look forward to receiving your proposals and hope to see you in October in Pittsburgh!
