CISPA Kick-Off
Date: 22 Oct 2015

On October 22, the Saarland University is celebrating the second funding period of the Centers for IT Security, Privacy and Accountability (CISPA) led by Professor Michael Backes. On this occasion Professor Johanna Wanka, the Federal Minister for Research and Education in Germany, is also expected in Saarbruecken.

The Center for IT-Security, Privacy, and Accountability (short: CISPA) was founded in October 2011 as a competence center for IT security at Saarland University. It is a joint endeavor of Saarland University (UdS) and its on-site partner institutions: the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPI-INF), the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS), and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). Cyber security is the cross-cutting theme of central importance for all these institutions.With the two Max Planck Institutes MPI-INF and MPI-SWS as well as the Computer Science Department at Saarland University working on cutting-edge foundational research aspects in CISPA, and with DFKI as the nowadays biggest application-oriented research institution in Europe being part of CISPA, we are in a unique position to address cyber security questions in a truly holistic manner: seminal foundational solutions based on newly developed principles and approaches are systematically developed into deployable security technologies and finally into prototypical and actually deployed systems in collaboration with industrial partners and own spin-off companies. The nucleus for this joint endeavor was the CISPA project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in 2011. As of today, CISPA has become one of Europe's leading research sites for IT security with more than 200 researchers working in IT security and related fields.
