Conference presentation

Advancing Experiment Design and Lifecycle with DEW

Genevieve Bartlett, DETER researcher, presented recent advances in testbed support for experiment design and lifecycle at the 11th USENIX Workshop on Cyber Security Experimentation and Test (CSET ’18) on August 13, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland. Genevieve, along with colleagues Jelena Mirkovic and Jim Blythe, are motivated to enable easier experiment design, management, sharing, and reuse. Current testbed experiments are often ad-hoc, manual, complex, and hard to repeat and reuse.

IEEE Cybersecurity Initiative to Support Innovation in Series of Leadership-Driven Programs for Women Engineers

I will be attending the upcoming IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference (WIE-ILC), to be held April 23-25, in San Jose, California. There are two events in conjunction with the WIE-ILC specific to Cybersecurity. The first is an “Innovations in Cybersecurity” panel. I am one of three women leaders participating in the panel that will provide expertise, perspective, and discussion on current cybersecurity strategies.

Subject Expert for "The National Agenda" at The Wall Street Journal CIO Network Conference

I had the opportunity to participate in the Wall Street Journal CIO Network Conference. Leading technology and information executives convened for this third annual meeting in San Diego, California on February 2-3, 2015. These leading CIOs and CTOs came together to discuss and debate key action items to spur better decision-making, greater technology, and innovation in corporations. I was invited to participate as a subject matter expert in the area of cybersecurity and was assigned to the breakout session on "The National Agenda". 

I find that working with CIOs and industry leaders provides a valuable perspective on hard problems and helps ground our research. I had some very interesting and informative discussions with CIOs from organizations ranging from a global consulting company to technologists from cybersecurity start-up companies.

Join DETER at SmartAmerica Expo to Showcase Innovations for Cyber-Physical Systems

I am here in Washington D.C. preparing for the Smart America Challenge Expo.  Our team - the Smart Energy Cyber-Physical Systems – will be demonstrating an integrated federated cyber physical testbed for experimentation and analysis for improving efficiency and resiliency, as well as protecting the crucial resource from potential terrorist attacks.

DASH wins best paper in the Human Systens track of the International Symposium on Resilient Control (ISRCS 12)

In August I attended the International Symposium on Resilient Control (, which presents research aimed to enhance resilience in next-generation control systems. Our paper, titled "A Dual-Process Cognitive Model for Testing Resilient Control Systems", was awarded Best Paper in the Human Systems track. It is available at /sites/default/files/files/blythe_isrcs12.pdf.

DEFT Demonstration at the twelfth annual IEEE Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security (HST '12)

DEFT is a collaboration between DETERLab, the University of Illinois, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) that is bringing large scale experimentation techniques to bear on problems in critical infrastructure.  In particular DEFT is exploring networking of power systems.  Using the DETER federation architecture, members of the collaboration have been able to interconnect data streams from local power facilities at UIUC and PNNL to each other and central systems at DETERLab.  The result is a collaborative l

DETER - Keynote Address at ACSAC, Key New Web Site

At the same time that I'm keynoting at the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC), the DETER team is launching a new Web site. The keynote address, the accompanying paper, and the web site are all part of a new level of information about the DETER project. I'm really looking forward to the talk and to announcing the new DETER web site that you see here.
