The Mozilla Security Research summit will be hosted in San
Francisco as part of Mozilla's Security Engineering University
Relationship Framework (SURF) initiative. This initiative aims to
increase collaboration between Mozilla and the academic community, so as
to leverage academic talent to help explore Mozilla-specific security
and privacy engineering research problems, and to strengthen Mozilla's
ties to the academic community.
The summit audience will
consist of a mix of Mozilla engineers, academics, and PhD students. Our
intention is for Mozilla engineers to "pitch" research problems to the
academic community, so as to spark potential collaboration. Our
engineers and researchers plan to deliver talks covering areas such as
tracking protection, language-based security, cryptography, web
measurement and machine learning. The day will also include some
high-caliber talks from security and privacy academics, as well as some
fast-paced PhD lightning talks. The event will include ample time for
discussion throughout the day and will conclude with a panel discussion.
