NIST & CSRA Workshop: Designed-in Cybersecurity for Smart Cities,
May 27-28, 2015

Purpose: 
The Designed-in Cybersecurity for Smart Cities Workshop is being jointly held by NIST and the Cybersecurity Research Alliance (CSRA). This workshop responds to the needs of communities around the world - from small towns to megacities - that are turning to smart city solutions to improve livability, workability, and sustainability. Essential to the success of these efforts are smart city solutions that are secure, reliable, and privacy-enhancing.

This workshop will foster collaborative discussion on how cybersecurity and privacy engineering might be designed into the infrastructure of a new generation of smart cities. To this end, the panel and breakout sessions provide opportunities for discussions about architectures (from the city or enterprise perspective), standards, privacy, and research and development. The goals are to identify short-, mid-, and long-term strategies for research and development (R&D) that enable transformative solutions for secure, privacy-preserving smart cities.

When: May 27-28, 2015 - 7:30am to 4:50pm EST 

Where: National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Red Auditorium
100 Bureau Drive 
Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070

Audience: Industry, Government, Academia

In response to the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2014 (https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/senate-bill/1353), federal agencies are developing an updated Federal cybersecurity research and development strategic plan. The strategic plan will be used to guide and coordinate federally-funded cybersecurity research. On behalf of the agencies, the Cyber Security and Information Assurance Research and Development Senior Steering Group seeks public input on research objectives for the strategic plan.

The Request for Information has been posted at: https://federalregister.gov/a/2015-09697

Responses are due by June 19, 2015

Overview
The NINR Big Data in Symptoms Research Boot Camp, part of the NINR Symptom Research Methodologies Series, is a one-week intensive research training course at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland. Sponsored by the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), the course is administered by the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES).

NINR's 2015 Boot Camp will provide a foundation in data science focusing on methodologies and strategies for incorporating novel methods into research proposals. The purpose of the course is to increase the research capability of graduate students, faculty, and clinicians. The course will feature lectures by distinguished guest speakers, classroom discussion, and hands-on training with real-world Big Data.

The course is provided by the NINR at no cost. Attendees are required to pay for housing, food, and transportation expenses incurred during program participation.

Course Dates
The Big Data Boot Camp will be held Monday, July 20, to Friday, July 24, 2015. Classes will begin daily at 8:30 am and adjourn at 5:00 pm.

Course Topics
This course will cover a number of topics relevant to using Big Data in research. For additional details, please see the agenda.

This new report from the National Research Council’s Board on Behavioral, Cognitive, and Sensory Sciences synthesizes and integrates the available research to provide guidance on assembling the science team; leadership, education and professional development for science teams and groups.  It also examines institutional and organizational structures and policies to support science teams and identifies areas where further research is needed to help science teams and groups achieve their scientific and translational goals.

This report offers public policy recommendations for science research agencies and policymakers, as well as recommendations for individual scientists, disciplinary associations, and research universities. The report will be of interest to university research administrators, team science leaders, science faculty, and graduate and postdoctoral students.

March may be Brain Injury Awareness Month, but at DARPA we study neuroscience year round to advance technologies that will help brain-injured servicemembers recover full capabilities. This research is advancing at a rapid pace, and opens up new possibilities that will be enabled by the interface of brain and machine. In this video, DARPA Program Manager Dr. Justin Sanchez explains the concept of brain-machine symbiosis and how it might help brain-injured peopled interact with their homes or recover sensory awareness.

Introduction

The NITRD Program provides a framework in which many Federal agencies come together to coordinate their networking and information technology (IT) research and development (R&D) efforts.

The Program operates under the aegis of the NITRD Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's (NSTC) Committee on Technology. The Subcommittee, made up of representatives from each of NITRD's member agencies, provides overall coordination for NITRD activities.

Federal IT R&D, which launched and fueled the digital revolution, continues to drive innovation in scientific research, national security, communication, and commerce to sustain U.S. technological leadership. The NITRD agencies' collaborative efforts increase the overall effectiveness and productivity of these Federal R&D investments, leveraging strengths, avoiding duplication, and increasing interoperability of R&D products.

The NITRD Program has its focus on the following research areas:

Bragging rights
Big Data (BD), Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA), Health Information Technology Research and Development (Health IT R&D), Human Computer Interaction and Information Management (HCI&IM), High Confidence Software and Systems (HCSS), High End Computing (HEC) Large Scale Networking (LSN), Software Design and Productivity (SDP), Social, Economic, and Workforce Implications of IT and IT Workforce Development (SEW), Wireless Spectrum Research and Development (WSRD)
