PST 2017 in Calgary August 28-30

PST2017, the fifteenth International Conference on Privacy, Security and Trust (PST), will be held in Calgary. The PST series of annual conferences was initiated at UNB Fredericton in 2003, and hosted in Atlantic and Central Canada for nine years before going international (Paris France, Tarragona Spain, Izmir Turkey, Auckland NZ). This year PST is returning to Canada, August 28 to 30, hosted by the University of Calgary.

SPIE is pleased to be a sponsor, and encourages practitioners in the Calgary information privacy, security and trust community to share in the success of this year's PST.

Details, as they become available, will be published at http://www.ucalgary.ca/pst2017/ and announced in SPIE communications.

 

SPIE Bursary Awarded

The SPIE Bursary for study at the University of Calgary was recently awarded to Rey Jr. Italia of Calgary. The award contributes 2,200 $ to further the studies of a Computer Science student with a concentration in Information Security. It's available to undergraduate students in third or fourth year on the basis of financial need and academic merit.
 
Rey emigrated to Calgary in 2011 from the Philippines with his mother and older sister. His father had preceded them, working for Cargill Meats, and brought his family over after he was established. Once Rey graduates, with his sister's help, it will be her turn to get an education and re-enter the workforce. It's the classic story of immigrant family bootstrap-to-success, and contribution to the adopted country.
 
Rey finished his high school at St. Mary's and went on to major in Computer Science at the University of Calgary. He is now in his third year.
