I am pleased to announce that the 2010 Computer Security Foundations Symposium will be held in Edinburgh, UK this year, in conjunction with FLoC 2010. Once again, I am honored to serve as the Publications Chair. I also note that the remarkable Graham Steel is serving as General Chair, with the astonishing Michael Backes and Andrew Myers serving as Program Chairs, making me all the more confident that it will once again be a wonderful event.
As I have mentioned elsewhere, this is one of my favorite venues-- mostly because it is very small, very collegial, and of very high quality. But don't just take my word for it: in May of 2003, CiteSeer rated it as having the 38th largest impact among all conferences and journals in computer science. Take that, CRYPTO (#79) and Oakland (#134)!
So, if any of you feel like visiting Scotland in mid-July of 2010, this will make an excellent excuse. (But I note that the deadline for submissions is coming up fast: Feb 4 for abstracts, Feb 8 for papers. I probably should have announced this before now.)
