Workshop 2017

The objective of the SEED workshops is to provide training to the instructors who are interested in using SEED labs in their courses. During the workshops, instructors will work on the SEED labs that they are interested in, with the help from us. We will also share with the instructors our experience in using these SEED labs. Each year, we hold two workshops at Syracuse University. The 2017 workshops will be held in the following days:

  • May 31 (Wednesday) - June 3 (Saturday), 2017: We start the first workshop on Wednesday because Monday is a holiday. Those who have to leave on Friday should feel free to do so.

  • June 5 (Monday) - June 8 (Thursday), 2017.

We will accept a total of 70 participants for the workshops (35 for each). The participants' travel costs (up to a certain limit) will be covered by our grant. The selection will be done based on several criteria, including coverage, diversity, and needs.

  • We have already reached our capacity, so the application is now closed. Check back in July to apply for our next year's workshops.
  • Our grant can only cover the participants from US-based schools. If you are not from US or not an instructor, we may accept your application if seats are still available, but you have to pay for your own travel and hotel (the workshop will still be free). In the last 2 years, we had a few self-sponsored international participants.
  • Due to the limitation of funds, those who have already attended our last 2 years' workshop will not be eligible to apply.
  • Participants are expected to bring their own computers, which need to have VirtualBox software installed. The minimum requirement of RAM is 4GB. For the Android security labs, 64-bit computer is required.
