The UAB College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) announces a FY2013 competition for graduate student entrepreneurship awards. CAS plans to award six such graduate student projects of up to $10,000 each. The goal is to promote student innovation and entrepreneurship across graduate programs in CAS.
Andrew Turner, head of Global Cyber Security at Visa, is the opening keynote speaker for the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research Cyber Summit 2014 to be held Feb. 18-19 in the UAB National Alumni Society House.
Training to improve cognitive abilities in older people lasted to some degree 10 years after the training program was completed, according to results of a randomized clinical trial supported by the National Institutes of Health. The University of Alabama at Birmingham was one of seven institutions involved in the study.
Dr. Samuel McQuade, Director of the MS in Professional Studies Program at the Rochester Institute of Technology, will speak at UAB on Jan. 15 in HUC 313.
Cyber Summit 2014, presented by the Center for Information Assurance and Joint Research, will be held at UAB on Feb. 18-19.

Super Center

They may not wear spandex or leather boots, but the elite team of investigators at the College of Arts and Sciences’ Center for Information Assurance/Joint Forensics Research (CIA/JFR) do indeed have some unique superpowers.
Nitesh Saxena, Ph.D., director of the University of Alabama at Birmingham Security and Privacy in Emerging computing and networking Systems (SPIES) research group, has received a $50,000 Google Faculty Research Award to develop his work on contextual security, improving mobile-device security using contextual information gathered by device sensors.
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) researchers have published a study showing that sleep-deprived adolescents are in greater danger crossing the street than their better-rested peers.
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) researchers are working to improve the end-to-end security of an increasingly common means of communication.
The grant will support a synthetic diamond research project — "Innovations in Chemical Vapor Deposited Diamond Crystals and Nanostructured Diamond Coatings" — and it represents a significant milestone in a growing strategic trend of collaborative efforts between the BBA and UAB.
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) have uncovered new hard-to-detect methods that criminals may use to trigger mobile device malware that could eventually lead to targeted attacks launched by a large number of infected mobile devices in the same geographical area. Such attacks could be triggered by music, lighting or vibration.
Fun in the summer often means kids spending time in the water, whether at a pool, the beach, a lake or river. A pediatric safety expert at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) stresses proper training and supervision to avoid drowning and other injuries.

Looking for a 12th century chess piece? A custom Rubik’s cube? An exact copy of a seashell, the inside of an eyeball, a relief map of an Egyptian burial ground, or an obscure protein? UAB computer scientist Kenneth Sloan, Ph.D., has them all in stock.
Computer security researchers put themselves into the minds of cybercriminals to figure out what they might do next. Nitesh Saxena, Ph.D., takes a different approach. His mission is to get inside the minds of users—quite literally, in his latest project—to figure out how to protect them from new attacks.
