I would like to invite you to join the talk of Stefano Calzavara, professor at University of Venice and WebSec researcher, who is visiting CISPA this week. The talk is on Thursday, May 19, 14:30, and you are invited to join and learn what our guest has to tell us about the Science of Web Security.
When: Thursday, May 19, 14:30
Where: Hybrid, i.e., CISPA Lecture Hall and Zoom (https://cispa-de.zoom.us/j/94023681911?pwd=bUgrTlJaR0tFSDlnTi9IMDZzVXNWdz09)
Title: Towards Improving the Science of Web Security
Abstract: Though useful, many web security papers (including mine!) do not satisfy traditional criteria of the scientific method. In this talk, I will provide a personal perspective on how the science of web security could be improved, by discussing recent work which (partially) tackled this issue. The talk will focus in particular on reproducibility and the importance of definitions for web security research.
