As part of the NSF EAGER Cybersecurity Transition to Practice grant, Florence Hudson and Emily Nichols were in Arlington, VA, for the National Science Foundation Secure & Trustworthy Cyberspace Principal Investigators' Meeting to meet NSF-funded cybersecurity research awardees, and learn more about their research assets that could be piloted or tested in an R&E environment. Florence and Emily are actively seeking researchers who wish to showcase their cybersecurity research, either on a webinar or at Global Summit (April 23-26, 2017) to potential practitioners.
