Report on the NSF Workshop on Formal Methods for Security

Figshare Admin Nsf
The NSF workshop on Security and Formal Methods, held 19–20 November 2015, brought together developers of formal methods, researchers exploring how to apply formal methods to various kinds of systems, and people familiar with the security problem space. Participants were drawn from universities, industry research organizations, government, and a selected pool of scientists from foreign institutions. We explored how current research results and strategies can provide improved secure systems using contemporary formal methods, and how...

NSF Workshop on Supporting Scientific Discovery through Norms and Practices for Software and Data Citation and Attribution

Figshare Admin Nsf
Software is as essential as data in the modern practice of science. When scientists share with each other not only research results, but also data and software, it vastly amplifies the reach, relevance, and transparency of science. Yet there are substantial social, systemic, and technological barriers that prevent scientists from sharing data and software. Scientific researchers --- particularly academics --- are embedded in a reputation economy in which tenure, promotion, and acclaim are achieved through...

Final Report from the NSF Workshop on Future Research Infrastructure for the Wireless Edge

Figshare Admin Nsf
Mobile and wireless-based access has transformed the nature of computing, communication and access in the last decade. The number of mobile wireless network-connected devices (i.e. smartphones, wearable computers, Internet of things, etc.) is anticipated to grow exponentially. As these devices become pervasive and the expectations from users continue to grow, researchers and practitioners are experimenting with new mechanisms to deliver at-scale services connecting the distributed cloud directly to end users.

NSF Workshop on "Beyond Cognitive Radios"

Figshare Admin Nsf
The concept of "Software Radio" was introduced in the early 1990s. Since then there has been significant research and development activity on software-defined radios (SDR). An important feature of the SDR vision is its ability to integrate legacy systems with newer and more advanced radio and access technologies. The work on SDR led to the realization that opportunistic spectrum utilization can lead to a dramatic improvement in the capacity of practical wireless networks, and the...

Curating for Quality: Ensuring Data Quality to Enable New Science

Figshare Admin Nsf
Science is built on observations. If our observational data is bad, we are building a house on sand. Some of our data banks have quality measurements and maintenance, such as the National Climate Data Center and the National Center for Biotechnology Information; but others do not, and we do not even know which scientific data services have quality metrics or what they are.Data quality is an assertion about data properties, typically assumed within a context...

Designing Tools and Curricula for Undergraduate Courses in Distributed Systems

Figshare Admin Nsf
Distributed applications have become a core component of the Internet's infrastructure. However, many undergraduate curricula do not offer courses that focus on the design and implementation of distributed systems. As a result, undergraduates are not as prepared as they should be for graduate study or careers in industry. Historically, the problem has often been caused by a lack of resources, since many schools do not have the computing infrastructure needed to experiment with distributed systems....

Workshop on Supporting Scientific Discovery through Norms and Practices for Software and Data Citation and Attribution

Figshare Admin Nsf
This report outlines findings from the National Science Foundation funded workshop on Ultra-Low-Latency Wireless Networks, held in Arlington, VA on November 3-4, 2016.Wireless networks have become a ubiquitous part of everyday life all around the world. Yet, wireless networks are very unpredictable on one critical aspect: communication latency. It is wellknown and widely observed that the latency incurred in accessing a wireless network can vary widely. The issue of unpredictable and often high latencies precludes...
