There is a growing community of computer scientists, mathematicians and computational sociologists conducting research in, and communicating ideas on:
The central topic around which these researchers meet and conduct research is the analysis of phenomena related to cyber from different perspectives: mathematics (network science), computer science (cybersecurity) and computational sociology (social networks).
The Lorentz-eScience workshop aims to get academic problem formulations related to cybersecurity more in sync with the practical end-goals of the practitioners in the field, and to have practitioners gain a wider understanding of state of the art practice in the academic field of cybersecurity research.
The Lorentz-eScience workshop competitions, organized by the Netherlands eScience Center and the Lorentz Center, sponsor leading-edge international workshops on the application of software to advance academic research. The workshops should bring together researchers from the academic scientific community with those from the public and private sector.
