INCO-TRUST WORKSHOP ON INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN SECURITY AND PRIVACY
International Data Exchange with Security and Privacy: Applications, Policy, Technology, and Use
May 3 - 5, 2010
New York Academy of Sciences
New York, NY
Security and privacy are critical to establishing a trustworthy cyber infrastructure. The goal of the workshop is to foster long-lasting international scientific collaborations to investigate the scientific foundations, design, and feasibility of a future international cyber architecture. Such an architecture must allow for transnational data repositories and be capable of enforcing both today's and future diverse security and privacy policies. Topics to be addressed may include, among others, how to determine whether a set of privacy or access control policies is consistent, whether it can be efficiently enforced, and if so what techniques are most effective.
Different data exchange applications will require tailored mechanisms that allow for security, privacy, anonymity, and provenance to be maintained. Of particular interest are:
The workshop is by invitation only and will consist of several keynote talks, panels, and breakout sessions. In addition, information will be presented about funding opportunities to support international research collaborations.
The workshop is taking place at the New York Academy of Sciences and the recommended hotel is Club Quarters. Both of these are located in downtown Manhattan in New York City, very close to the World Trade Center site.
The closest airports are:
The recommended Club Quarters hotel is at 140 Washington Street, between Albany and Cedar Street, just south of the World Trade Center site. (Some on-line maps think the address is 130 Cedar Street, but the building is the same.)
To get to the hotel or to the New York Academy of Sciences from these airports, you can take a taxi (expect this to cost somewhere between $50 and $100 after tolls and tips). (Tips are customarily around 15%.) A less expensive option is to take a shuttle bus from the airport to one or more stops in Manhattan (Penn Station, Port Authority, or Grand Central). Cost is around $15. From any of these stops, the hotel can then be reached by a short subway ride or yellow taxi.
Public transportation: Several subway lines have stops conveniently located to the New York Academy of Sciences and to Club Quarters. Information can be found at http://www.mta.info or check out this Google maps mashup.
You may also find the directions provided by the New York Academy of Sciences useful.
Note for US participants: Through funds from the National Science Foundation, Rutgers University will provide reimbursement for US participants for transportation to and from the workshop. We will send additional information about reimbursement via e-mail. Please obtain and save receipts for all your reimbursable expenses. Please note that we cannot reimburse locally rented rental cars.
We recommend that participants stay at Club Quarters, World Trade Center, at 140 Washington St, New York, NY 10016. This is a 5-minute walk from the New York Academy of Sciences, where the workshop will be held. (Some on-line maps think the address is 130 Cedar Street, but the building is the same.)
Participants can reserve rooms at the rate of $206 per night there by calling +1 212 575-0006 and referencing code NYAS10. (This is for a standard room for weeknights. Additional taxes apply. There is an additional charge of $15 per night for having an extra person in the room.) Please make your reservation as soon as possible to ensure availability.
Note that some of the rooms at this hotel face onto the World Trade Center site (which at this point, is essentially a large construction site). Participants who have a strong preference to face the site, or to not face the site, should mention this at the time of making their reservation.
Note for US participants: Through funds from the National Science Foundation, Rutgers University will provide reimbursement for US participants for up to three nights of hotel. We will send information about reimbursement via e-mail. Please obtain and save receipts for all your reimbursable expenses.
