Google, IBM and Microsoft meet in Luxembourg at ICST 2013

World leading conference on software security hosted by University of Luxembourg

No other engineering artefact is more closely intertwined with the human activities, resulting in highly complex systems that involve software, human judgement and, sometimes, political, legal and social processes. Software has become an important, indispensable part of our lives. Security and reliability of software are essential for our individual lives, societies, political economics and global markets.

Beside welcome speeches from François Biltgen, Minister for research and higher education, on Tuesday March 19 at 8.45 a.m. and Etienne Schneider, Minister of economy and foreign trade, on Wednesday, 20 March at 8.30 a.m. the keynotes of highly renowned experts like Stephanie Forrest, University of New Mexico, Ross Smith, Microsoft Corporation and Jean Hilger, BCEE are expected.

The conference will take place at Abbaye de Neumünster, 28, rue Münster in Luxembourg-City.
