Many industries and businesses will be at the fair on Thursday, Aug. 2, 8:30 to 11:30 AM, at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon.

Student stipends available for a Job Fair in PORTLAND!

If you are enrolled in an information security, computer science, and information technology degree program, you now have a fantastic opportunity to talk with representatives from a range of IT and cybersecurity businesses and industries that have job openings.

You can apply to receive financial support to cover your job fair and 3CS registration, travel costs, lodging, and per diem stipend, based on the distance from your home to Mt. Hood Community College, as described below:

  • Local Students (living within 60 miles of Mt. Hood) – qualify for the coverage of their registration ($25) and reimbursement of round-trip travel at the rate of 54.5 cents per mile.
  • Regional Students (living between 60 and 175 miles from Mt. Hood) – qualify for the coverage of their registration ($25), reimbursement of round-trip travel at the rate of 54.5 cents per mile, one (1) night’s lodging ($209 - room must be shared by 2 students), and a stipend of $138.
  • National Students (living over 175 miles from Mt. Hood) – qualify for the coverage of their registration ($25), reimbursement for transportation (airplane/bus/train) or mileage reimbursement not to exceed $500, two (2) nights lodging ($209 - room must be shared by 2 students), and a stipend of $138 to cover other trip incidentals.

Call for Applications - CCC Leadership in Embedded Security Workshop

The Cybersecurity Taskforce of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) will host a leadership workshop to envision the future of embedded security research on August 13th in Baltimore, Maryland.

The workshop, co-chaired by Wayne Burleson (UMass Amherst), Kevin Fu (CCC Cybersecurity Taskforce Chair, University of Michigan), and Farinaz Koushanfar (UC San Diego), will be co-located with the 27th USENIX Security Symposium. It will begin with a reception on the evening of August 12th and conclude by 5 PM on the 13th.

The workshop will focus on embedded security - the study of physical properties, computational properties, and human factors to protect embedded systems, such as pacemakers, autonomous vehicles, and the Internet of Things, from attack. This workshop is by invitation only – the CCC is seeking short position papers to both assist us in organizing the workshop and in selecting attendees to invite. Participants will consist of invited faculty members, industrial researchers, and government agency program managers.

The event will consist of deep dive group discussions as well as short visionary talks by several international speakers to lend perspectives on successful strategies for funding embedded security research overseas.

Confirmed panelists include

Call for Papers - Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences 52

Minitrack: Innovative Behavioral IS Security and Privacy Research. This minitrack provides a venue for innovative research that rigorously addresses the risks to information system security and privacy, with a specific focus on individual behaviors within this nomological net. Domains include work related to detecting, mitigating, and preventing both internal and external human threats to organizational security.


The Colloquium recognizes that the protection of information and infrastructures that are used to create, store, process, and communicate information is vital to business continuity and security. The Colloquium's goal is to work together to define current and emerging requirements for information assurance education and to influence and encourage the development and expansion of information assurance curricula, especially at the graduate and undergraduate levels.


Save money and support the Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education.
