CAMLIS 2019 Student Travel Scholarship

The goal of this program is to get students studying at the interface of information security and machine learning more involved with the CAMLIS community. We aim to create opportunities for dialog between students and applied industrial researchers to share and brainstorm about real-world challenges in cybersecurity. Students who receive the scholarship will receive financial support (reimbursement) for travel, lodging expenses and a waiver of the conference registration fee.  This program is open to all, regardless of whether the student has a paper or not at the conference.

The Conference on Applied Machine Learning in Information Security (CAMLIS) is a venue for discussing applied research on machine learning, deep learning and data science in information security.

We invite title and abstract submissions on the direct application of statistics, machine learning, deep learning and data science to information security.

The conference is single-track and will include presentations, posters and tutorials.  Presentations will be 20 minutes with a lengthy (up to 10 minutes) opportunity for discussion period after each talk.  This year, we also encourage proposals for tutorials on either machine learning techniques or infosec problems. Tutorials, which are targeted for 60 minutes, should be on mature areas of applied research or practice.  Preference will be given to tutorial topics having broad applicability to and/or garnering wide interest by the CAMLIS community. All talks and tutorials will be recorded and made publicly available after the conference.

We encourage participation from students and academics working in information security, government research labs, national laboratories and FFRDCs, and information security data scientists in industry.  A small number of student travel grants will be awarded for students requiring support, with preference given to student presenters. A separate announcement for student travel grants will be released in mid-August.
