InSITeS will host a Brainstorming Panel entitled, 


on Thursday, December 5 from 12:30 - 2:00pm in 
Room 2503 Hamburg Hall.  The session will be moderated by 
Peter Shane, Director of InSITeS.  

Refreshments will be served.

Panelists for the session include:

Visiting professor in the School of Computer Science and in the Heinz
School of Public Policy.  Professor Farber's career has been focused on
the understanding of and development of telecommunications systems.
Former Chief Technologist of the FCC, he is a member of the Board of
Trustees of the Internet Society (ISOC) and the Board of Directors of the
Electronic Frontier Foundation. In addition, he is a member of the
Advisory Board for the Center for Democracy and Technology, and was
recently appointed to the Advisory Board of NTT DoCoMo Inc., U.S.  He has
served more than 10 years on the NRC's Computer Science and
Telecommunications Board.

Senior Systems Scientist, Computer Science and Electrical and Computer
Engineering.  Dr. Maxion's research covers several areas of computer
science, including development and evaluation of highly reliable systems,
concept learning, and human-computer interfaces. He is developing
dependable systems for automated detection, diagnosis and remediation of
faulty or unanticipated events in many domains -- international banking,
telecommunications networks, digital libraries, vendor help systems,
semiconductor fabrication and others.

Senior Lecturer in Engineering and Public Policy.  His research interests
include high technology, biotechnology, and information technology and
their impact on security and the economy.  He also conducts research on
mathematical modeling for policy analysis (complex systems, stochastic
processes). Dr. Morel has held appointments in physics at Harvard
University as a Post-Doctoral Fellow, at CERN and University of Geneva,
and at California Institute of Technology. After attending Caltech, he
went to Stanford as a Science Fellow in arms control. There, he pursued
research in the security implications and the technology of
anti-ballistic missile defense.   Since coming to Carnegie Mellon in
1987, Dr. Morel's research has focused upon military high technology, its
technical details and structure, and its impact on security and arms
control, as well as its effects on American defense policy.

Manager, Survivable Network Technologies, Software Engineering Institute.
Dr. Longstaff is currently leading research in network security for the
Networked Systems Survivability Program at the Software Engineering
Institute (SEI). As a member of the CERT(R) Coordination Center (an
incident handling team at the SEI), Dr. Longstaff has daily access to the
most up to date information on Internet security, product
vulnerabilities, and intruder profiles in existence. Using CERT(R)/CC
incident and vulnerability information, Tom models network security
architectures and their vulnerabilities, then applies these models to
determine the relative survivability of architectural alternatives.
