    IBWAS’10: Ibero-American Web Application Security Conference

    May 27th, 2010

    IBWAS’10:Ibero-American Web Application Security Conference , Nov 11-12, 2010.

    Summary:

    There is a change in the information systems development paradigm. The emergence of Web 2.0 technologies led to the extensive deployment and use of web-based applications and web services as a way to developed new and flexible information systems. Such systems are easy to develop, deploy and maintain and demonstrate impressive features for users, resulting in their current wide use.

    As a result of this paradigm shift, the security requirements have also changed. These web-based information systems have different security requirements, when compared to traditional systems. Important security issues have been found and privacy concerns have also been raised recently. In addition, the emerging Cloud Computing paradigm promises even greater flexibility; however corresponding security and privacy issues still need to be examined. The security environment should involve not only the surrounding environment but also the application core.

    This conference aims to bring together application security experts, researchers, educators and practitioners from the industry, academia and international communities such as OWASP, in order to discuss open problems and new solutions in application security. In the context of this track academic researchers will be able to combine interesting results with the experience of practitioners and software engineers.

    TIUP 2009 – 2nd stage, April 22, 2009

    Summary (in portuguese):

    O Torneio Inter-Universitário de Programação (TIUP) é um torneio de programação para estudantes universitários que proporciona uma excelente oportunidade para estes testarem a sua capacidade de resolução de problemas. Para além do aspecto competitivo, o TIUP possibilita também o convívio e troca de experiências entre alunos e professores das Universidades portuguesas.

    O torneio é composto por cinco ou seis provas mensais, realizadas entre Março e Setembro. Cada prova é organizada por uma comissão científica de uma Universidade portuguesa, responsável pela elaboração dos problemas e pela preparação e gestão do sistema web de avaliação automática (Mooshak).

    A participação é feita de forma remota em cada Universidade. As provas do TIUP são disputadas por equipas com (no máximo) 3 elementos, tendo a duração de 3 horas para resolução de 5 a 6 problemas com recurso às linguagens de programação C, C++ ou Java (outras linguagens podem eventualmente vir a ser utilizadas).

    A 2ª prova do TIUP 2009 será organizada pelo Departamento de Informática da Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa, no dia 22 de Abril, entre as 17h e as 20h. A comissão científica é composta pelos seguintes elementos (por ordem alfabética):
