5 Abstracts Keynote Presentations 2:30-3:30 p.m. Dr. L. Jean Camp, Indiana University Bloomington Computer Security and, versus, or Security Informatics Economic and technical trends have created the need for specialists in computer security. Rather than requiring the creation of ever more narrow programs of study, security informatics offers a different path. Unlike traditional computer security programs in computer science departments, this program focuses on a holistic view of security by looking at technical, user, and organizational aspects. Computer science programs have traditionally focused only on the technical aspects of security, which is at least partially responsible for the failure to address successfully some of the more social types of online attacks, such as phishing (a form of Internet scam that allows thieves access to the victim s accounts). For example, security mechanisms which can be used to preemptively find and stop phishing attacks exist in most browsers, but because these technologies are difficult to engage, few people are aware of their existence. Even fewer are able to effectively use these technologies. Similarly many technical security measures now fail in large part due to the lack of consideration given to the human, organizational, and economic dimensions in security design. Security Informatics provides a more encompassing perspective on security. Security Informatics can be combined with other areas, as shown by Indiana s use of concentrations in the local Security Informatics program, to leverage institutional strength in psychology, economics, health care, or regional studies. Also, by focusing on areas where women and men of color are not as under-represented as in computer science, security informatics can create an opportunity for recruitment in populations that might not consider a more traditional degree. 9:15 10:15 a.m. Scott Easley, University of Southern California Gamepipe Program Building an Academic Video Game Pipeline Starting up a video game program at a major University has to take into account several crucial factors: Corralling hundreds of students with no previous experience, integrating disparate classes, the constant need to create thousands of 3d assets, and ultimately how to track the production of all student games. Within two semesters, Scott Easley helped to create the Gamepipe Program at the University of Southern California's Viterbi school of Engineering -- which in 2010 was ranked as the #1 video game design program by The Princeton Review.
6 1:00 2:00 p.m. Sven Koenig, University of Southern California and National Science Foundation Computer Science Curricula Sven Koenig will discuss some of his ideas related to computer science curricula and, in this context, raise questions such as: Do computer science students need to know statistics? Can we teach concepts from computer science with games? Should students who are interested in artificial intelligence consider taking classes in operations research? What should we teach undergraduate students about research and research ethics? 4:40 5:40 p.m. Scott Grissom, Program Director, National Science Foundation NSF Funding Opportunities for CS Faculty and Tips for Submitting Grant Proposals National Science Foundation (NSF) programs are quite competitive but there are simple strategies that investigators should be aware of to improve their chances of success. This session describes of some education-related programs in the EHR and CISE directorates, highlights programs in the NSF of particular interest to computer science educators, and enables participants to interact with the presenter concerning specific project ideas that could be appropriate for the various programs. Topics include a description of program goals, guidelines, review process as well as strategies for writing competitive proposals. Dr. Grissom is an NSF Program Officer in the Division of Undergraduate Education and has a wealth of experience working with NSF-funded principle investigators.
