The Mozilla Security Research summit will be hosted in San Francisco as part of Mozilla's Security Engineering University Relationship Framework (SURF) initiative. This initiative aims to increase collaboration between Mozilla and the academic community, so as to leverage academic talent to help explore Mozilla-specific security and privacy engineering research problems, and to strengthen Mozilla's ties to the academic community.
The summit audience will consist of a mix of Mozilla engineers, academics, and PhD students. Our intention is for Mozilla engineers to "pitch" research problems to the academic community, so as to spark potential collaboration. Our engineers and researchers plan to deliver talks covering areas such as tracking protection, language-based security, cryptography, web measurement and machine learning. The day will also include some high-caliber talks from security and privacy academics, as well as some fast-paced PhD lightning talks. The event will include ample time for discussion throughout the day and will conclude with a panel discussion.
