The LASER Workshop: Learning from Authoritative Security Experiment Results

October 18–19, 2017
Arlington, VA, USA
A USENIX Publication

USENIX is proud to be the publisher of the Proceedings of the Learning from Authoritative Security Experiment Results (LASER) 2017 workshop, which took place October 18–19, 2017, in Arlington, VA, USA.

The Learning from Authoritative Security Experiment Results (LASER) workshop series focuses on learning from and improving cybersecurity experimental results. LASER explores both positive and negative results, the latter of which are not often published. LASER's overarching goal is to foster a dramatic change in the paradigm of cyber security research and experimentation, improving the overall quality of practiced science.

USENIX provides free, perpetual online access to technical papers. As part of our commitment to open access, the proceedings from LASER 2017 are now free and openly accessible via the Workshop Program web page.
