ZISC Seminars

We organize two types of seminar talks:

- ZISC Lunch Seminar is a weekly series of talks that take place in the Institute of Information Security Meeting Room (CNB F110). The Lunch Seminar consists of an informal lunch followed by a research talk. The Lunch seminar talks are given by ZISC researchers. Additionally, We invite researchers from various universities as well as the industry. Registration for the Lunch seminar talks is required.

- ZISC Open Seminars are individual research talks. Typically the Open Seminar talks are given by visiting world-class researchers and they take place is a larger room to facilitate bigger audience. The talks are open and no registration is required.

Below you can find a list of talks and, when available, an abstract and the slides used during the presentation.
