Please note that this workshop has been rescheduled to Thursday, 28 April 2022.
The Learning from Authoritative Security Experiment Results (LASER) workshop will be held virtually on Thursday, April 28 2022, in conjunction with the Network and Distributed Systems Security (NDSS) Symposium.
The LASER workshop series focuses on learning from and improving cybersecurity experiment results. The workshop strives to provide a highly interactive, collegial environment for discussing and learning from experimental methodologies, execution, and results. Ultimately, the workshop seeks to foster a dramatic change in the experimental paradigm for cybersecurity research, improving the overall quality and reporting of practiced science.
The LASER workshop invites broad participation by the community, including (1) authors of accepted papers from major cybersecurity conferences to present and discuss the experimental aspects of their work, and (2) by others interested in contributing to and learning from such discussions and interaction.
Conference papers all too often must focus on research results and contain limited discussion of the experimental aspects of the work (maybe a small section with a few paragraphs at the end of the paper). LASER provides an opportunity to focus on and explore the experimental approaches and methodologies used to obtain the research results.
The LASER workshop not only provides authors of accepted papers the opportunity to present and discuss the experimental aspects of their work with other workshop participants, but also the option to write new published papers that expand on the experimental aspects of their work.
