WECS is dedicated to the advancement of Information Assurance education. The tutorials are for the advancement of IA education at the undergraduate level with emphasis on reaching under-represented groups. CISR launched WECS in 1999 and is proud to have started such a successful tradition of outreach to the computer security community.
The Workshop is Open to All
The goal of WECS7 is to bring together members of the information assurance education community to promote an exchange of ideas related to shared educational objectives.
What to expect:
- Presentations and Talks
- Tutorials on CyberCIEGE
- Workshop proceedings will be available at the workshop
- Interaction with those new to IA education
- Workshop hors d'oeuvres reception at the historic Hermann Hall
As part of WECS7, CISR will provide an extensive hands-on scenario development tutorial for CyberCIEGE, a computer-based tool to teach network security concepts. CyberCIEGE is an extensible, commercial-quality video game that allows students to understand the impact of security choices in a simulated world. A copy of CyberCIEGE will be provided to attendees.

"The WECS7 Conference was Excellent."
I learned a lot during the week. There were excellent seminars; from Jide Odubiyi's Attack Modeling to Matt Bishop's talk onTeaching Assurance to Dan Warren's comprehensive treatise of security. I was impressed with CyberCIEGE and we may have interest from our students in assisting on the project for their Capstone project - both from a programming effort as well as the scenario and storyline perspective. Insights to The Center of Academic Excellence Program and Shiva's seminar on Undergraduate Computer Security Education were very helpful for us in aligning our computer science courses with security prerequisites for a CS degree.
Bottom line - all the hard work you did along with your colleagues made it a valuable and successful conference. Please pass my appreciation on to Dr. Irvine. - it was time very worthwhile." - Michael Yee, CSUMB, WECS7 Attendee
