Security Seminar Series

The Security Research Group organises the Security Seminar Series with invited speakers on selected topics of broad interest. These seminars are open for attendance to anyone interested in security research, not only to members of the university.

The talks take place on Tuesdays, 14:00, in Lecture Theatre 2 of the William Gates Building during term (unless otherwise noted or arranged). They are 45 to 60 minutes long, typically followed by a lively discussion. Attendance ranges from 20 to 40 people, although the room can accommodate up to 130.
