  • The Computers and Humans Exploring Software Security (CHESS) program aims to develop capabilities to discover and address vulnerabilities of all types in a scalable, timely, and consistent manner. 

  • UCSB Computer Science PhD student, Semih Yavuz, in Prof. Xifeng Yan's group received the Best Paper Award at NeurIPS 2018 Workshop titled "Conversational AI: Today's Practice and Tomorrow's Potential". This NeurIPS workshop focuses on conversational systems and natural language interfaces (such as Siri, Google Now, Cortana, and Alexa) which have become commonplace in the span of only a few years. 

  • The 13th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation seeks to present innovative, exciting research in computer systems. OSDI brings together professionals from academic and industrial backgrounds in a premier forum for discussing the design, implementation, and implications of systems software. The OSDI Symposium emphasizes innovative research as well as quantified or insightful experiences in systems design and implementation.
