CINO Collaborating with Internet2 Community on Smart Campus, Cybersecurity, TIPPSS, and More!

Chief Innovation Officer Florence Hudson presented at the Terena Networking Conference (TNC) in Linz, Austria, on the Internet2 smart campus initiative, in partnership with the Netherlands NREN SURFnet, and presented in the "Securing the Things" session with Ken Klingenstein from our Trust & Identity team on "TIPPSS for IoT" – Trust, Identity, Privacy, Protection, Safety and Security – to discuss IoT opportunities on campus and how to develop solutions together.

Chief Innovation Officer Florence Hudson and Susannah Spellman, Executive Director for USUCAN, keynoted the iLight and Indiana Gigapop members meeting in Indianapolis, presenting "The Internet2 Community: Enabling the Future".

Texas A&M University invited Florence Hudson to keynote on her journey "From Engineer to SVP: The long and winding road" at their Research Computing Week, a conference that included a keynote from NSF's Irene Qualters. While at TAMU Florence met with NSF-funded researchers in cybersecurity, smart grid, and smart transportation to explore collaborations for their dynamic watermarking research.

Florence Hudson and Emily Nichols presented at regional cybersecurity workshops in Seattle and Pittsburgh to further cybersecurity research and practitioner collaboration for the NSF grant Internet2 is leading on Cybersecurity Research Transition To Practice Acceleration (NSF EAGER #1650445). In Seattle, Emily spoke at the "Northwest Institute for Advanced Computing (NIAC) Workshop on Data Sciences – Analytics and Security for Cyber Physical Systems" hosted by the University of Washington and Pacific Northwest National Lab. In Pittsburgh, Florence spoke at the "Towards Security Assured Cyberinfrastructure in Pennsylvania (SAC-PA)" Workshop, hosted by the University of Pittsburgh.

Florence Hudson had several presentations at Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC) in New Orleans July 10-14. She presented "Finding the Path Forward: Expanding Diversity in Academic Research Computing" along with Lisa Arafune of CASC, Sharon Broude Geva of University of Michigan, and Kelly Nolan of Compute Canada. Additionally, Florence presented Cybersecurity Research Transition to Practice (TTP) Acceleration as part of the ARCC: Identity and Access Management, Security and Related Topics session and during the Workshop on Trustworthy Scientific Cyberinfrastructure led by Jim Basney of University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

The Chief Innovation Office has five unpaid summer Innovation Interns, 4 undergraduates and one graduate student, from Stony Brook University, New York University, University of Massachusetts – Amherst, and Lehigh University. They are working on identifying cybersecurity research for the NSF cybersecurity grant workshops, developing whitepapers to support the smart campus and Internet of Things initiatives, and providing Collaborative Innovation Community support.
