Stanford Security Seminar 1998-99


The focus of the Stanford Security Seminar is on communication between Stanford and the outside world on any and all topics pertaining to computer security.  Typically, a speaker from industry or elsewhere in academia presents their current work in an informal setting on the Stanford campus. These symposia are open to the public and are generally accessible and interesting to experts and laypeople alike.

A secondary focus is the sampling of the various delectable junk-food goodies indigenous to supermarkets everywhere.
