Welcome to Secure Systems Demo Day on June 8, 2023!

Every year we organize a Demo Day to showcase our current research in information security and to seek valuable inputs from external visitors. The event is intended to bring local academia, students and industry together and give them an overview of on-going information security research in Finland’s capital area.

Demo days have been an excellent opportunity for students and researchers to network and search for open positions within the local infosec industry and academia. If you are interested in advertising internship and thesis positions that you have open in your company, please contact our coordinator Niina Idänheimo (niina.idanheimo@aalto.fi) for more information.

Secure Systems annual Demo Days are public events and free of charge. Events are organized by the Secure Systems research groups at Aalto University and University of Helsinki in collaboration with Helsinki-Aalto Institute for Cybersecurity (HAIC).

Looking forward to meeting you in the event,

Lachlan Gunn and Tuomas Aura, Chris Brzuska, Mikko Kiviharju, Russell Lai, Janne Lindqvist, Samuel Marchal, Valtteri Niemi and Mohit Sethi
