GREPSEC VI will be held on Tuesday, August 8, 2023, at the Anaheim Marriott in Anaheim, CA, USA.

View the workshop program.


GREPSEC is a workshop for PhD students in computer security and privacy, focusing on underrepresented populations, including women, non-binary, and gender minorities; Black, Hispanic/Latino/Latina, Native American and Indigenous students; and LGBTQ+ students.

The GREPSEC program will be available soon and include research talks, mentoring, and social/networking sessions. The workshop will be a relaxed event, focused on creating and fostering lasting connections within the computer security and privacy community. The program will provide ample time to engage informally with speakers about research opportunities and career paths. Speakers will be invited based on accomplishments in research as well as their ability to mentor students from diverse backgrounds.

There is NO REGISTRATION FEE for attendees who are accepted to the workshop. Students from US-based institutions who are accepted to the GREPSEC workshop will be eligible for travel grants; funding may also be available for a few international students.

GREPSEC is scheduled for the Tuesday, August 8, immediately preceding the 32nd USENIX Security Symposium (USENIX Security '23) and taking place concurrently with the Nineteenth Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS 2023), to encourage workshop attendees to network with attendees of both symposia. All GREPSEC attendees are also encouraged to also apply for a grant to attend USENIX Security '23. Grants are competitive, and cover partial hotel and registration. Applications will go live when USENIX Security '23 registration opens later this year.

Space is limited and an application is required of all potential attendees. Applicants should be a graduate or postdoctoral student, with strong preference for those actively doing research (toward eventual publication) in security and privacy.
