"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."
