GT Computing Goes Big at Premier Cybersecurity Symposium
A new method for mobile location privacy, a vulnerability that lets cyberattackers control more than 91 percent of an operating system, and a safeguard that secretly bootstraps memory space to protect against corruption attacks are just a few of the advances Georgia Tech researchers, students, and faculty shared this week in San Diego, Calif., at the Network and Distributed System Security Symposium – one of the information security community's premier international events. Read more>>

• Congratulations to second-year computer science major Animesh Fatehpuria for taking second place at the Bloomberg Global CodeCon 2017. Animesh faced off against 140 competitors from across the U.S., Canada, and Europe in the grueling, two-hour coding challenge. CS majors Mason Liu and Matthew Fahrbach also did well at the event, with both placing in the top 50.

• Turing Award laureate and UC Berkeley Professor Richard Karp is presenting the annual Alberto Apostolico Memorial Lecture, March 13 at 11 a.m. in Klaus 1116. Karp's presentation, The Colorful Connected Subgraph Problem, details "a simple, fast heuristic algorithm" that can find perfect solutions to NP-hard problems that are seen in a variety of contexts including protein-protein interaction networks, social networks, and sensor networks.
