The International School on Foundations of Security Analysis and Design FOSAD is a one-week yearly school on cyber-security held in Bertinoro (Italy) in August-September. The main aim of the FOSAD school is to offer a good spectrum of current research in foundations of security - ranging from programming languages to analysis of protocols, from cryptographic algorithms to access control policies and trust management - that can be of help for graduate students and young researchers from academia or industry that intend to approach the field.

Around 200 MSCA fellows got together on 7 and 8 July 2018 for an Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Satellite Event ahead of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) 2018 in Toulouse, France.
ESRs Fabio Giubilo (ESR9) and Daniel Bastos (ESR11) from British Telecom attended the event and represented the NeCS project by engaging with other MSCA students and sharing their experience.
In addition to the networking activities, the event also included a visit to the Airbus facilities and museum in Toulouse.
The IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) conference series seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences as related to cloud computing.
During the 2018 edition of British Science Week, the UK's biggest event about science, at BT labs in Adastral Park, ESRs Fabio Giubilo & Daniel Bastos & Mohamad Imad Mahaini volunteered, welcoming and explaining math-based games to children.
The event is deigned to encourage the next generation to develop a greater interest and involvement in STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) skills and, eventually, careers.
- Salman Manzoor (TUD): Threat Modeling and Analysis of the Cloud Ecosystem
- Martin Kolar (UMA): Policy Languages and Their Suitability for Trust Negotiation
The European Network for Cybersecurity (NECS) was formed in response to the increased need of highly qualified experts. It addresses the issues of training and development of talented junior researchers as indicated in the European Cyber-security strategy and highlighted in the EC’s Digital Agenda.
During the 12th International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (ICITST-2017), held at University of Cambridge (UK), ESR Fabio Giubilo (British Telecom) chaired the session titled "Cloud Security".
The next Webex seminar will take place on Wednesday the 6th of December at 15:00 CET. There will be two speakers:
- Sandeep Gupta (UNITN): "User authentication in smartphones using behavioral biometrics”
- Christina Michailidou (CNR): "Risk-aware Data Usage Control Model for simplifying policies”
Coffee with Science
The main purpose of this event is to overcome the stereotype of a scientist who is confined in a laboratory, since the secondary school students could sit with them and know the importance of their work, a knowledge that may awaken their future scientific vocations.
