Workshop Program:

Preliminary Program for DIMACS Workshop on Large-Scale Attacks

IMPORTANT: the workshop is meant to be a true workshop, in which the actual program is fluid, and the emphasis is on interactivity and incubating new connections (both between people and across areas). We anticipate last-minute changes, and indeed may alter the program on the spot as discussion and opportunity suggests.
