The Computer Security Foundations Symposium is an annual
conference for researchers in computer security, to examine current
theories of security, the formal models that provide a context for
those theories, and techniques for verifying security.

Over the past two decades, many seminal papers and techniques have
been presented first at CSF. In 2008, CiteSeer listed CSF as 38th out
of more than 1200 computer science venues (top 3.11%) in impact based
on citation frequency. CiteSeerX lists CSF 2007 as 7th out of 581
computer science venues (top 1.2%) in impact based on citation

The atmosphere of the symposium is informal, often in a peaceful,
rural setting that encourages an exchange of thoughtful technical
discussion by all attendees, both during and after scheduled

William Guenther, Mass Insight Global Partnerships
Butler Lampson, Microsoft Research
