ICT Early Career Researcher Workshop, Glasgow 2014

February 2014

EPSRC’s Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Theme held this workshop as part of its on-going commitment to support the development of early career researchers.

The two-day workshop provided a forum for early career researchers from across the ICT research landscape to engage with academic mentors, guest speakers and EPSRC staff. Workshop sessions provided advice on funding opportunities and career development, networking activities and discussions on the impact of ICT research, responsible innovation and the development of strategies to benefit UK ICT research.
Prior to the workshop, participants were invited to provide a short title and longer description answering the question:

"Which research topic in ICT is currently of greatest interest to you?"

Participants were then invited to sort the resulting topics into coherent groups. These groups are shown below, with the colours used to refer to them at the meeting. To see the longer descriptions for any coloured area, or the researchers who were interested in the topics within, simply click on it.

Yellow Group:
'Privacy Aware Smart Metering Infrastructure'

Group MembersDescription
CybersecurityI am particularly interested in the development of statistical approaches to solving research challenges in Network Security and Privacy.
Natural Language Processing for Cyber SecurityI am mainly interested in applying Natural Language Processing techniques, such as authorship attribution and deception detection, to countering cyber security issues, such as social engineering attacks, fraud/exploitation and radicalisation.
Smart grid cyber securityIn smart grid every component at every level of the electric grid is Internet connected. Inadvertently this also increasing attack surface to the critical infrastructure for cyber attacks. A holistic security approach is needed to address the issue.
Privacy-aware computation in untrusted networksPrivacy-aware computation aims at realizing secure services which can process, provision and persist private and confidential data without compromising end-to-end privacy. It will consequently assist in privacy-aware data analysts on public data.
