**NSF-SaTC workshop at ICERM
MATHEMATICS OF DATA ANALYSIS IN CYBERSECURITY
October 22-24, 2014**

**ORGANIZING COMMITTEE:
**Edo Airoldi, Harvard University

Paul Barford, University of Wisconsin

Henry Cohn, Microsoft

John Harer, Duke University

John Johnson, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Mauro Maggioni, Duke University

Jill Pipher, ICERM

**DESCRIPTION:**

The goal of this workshop is to bring mathematicians and cybersecurity practitioners together to outline the key challenges in the mathematics of cybersecurity data analysis. The expected outcome of the workshop will be a roadmap for investment in specific mathematical topics that will director impact the advancement of the science of cybersecurity.

Mathematicians have long been involved in information security through cryptography, and thus algebra and number theory. But modern cyber security is a much larger field, and the perspectives and methodologies of other parts of the mathematical sciences have been only rarely been brought to bear. Given the complexity and dynamics of cyberspace it is essential to have a formal scientific basis for the field of cybersecurity. Indeed, a variety of sources have called for the creation of a "science of cybersecurity", and mathematical methods should play a critical role in such a science.

Mathematical scientists and cybersecurity practitioners will be brought together who have expertise in several main areas, including especially high dimensional data analysis and cryptography. Together, they will establish a road map for bringing more mathematicians into the field of cybersecurity. Sharing visions of near and far term goals of the field will be the highlight of the conference.
