Recent news reports stated that the National Security Agency has pursued new methods that have allowed the agency to monitor telephone and online communication, encrypted information that was thought to be virtually immune to eavesdropping. What steps can and should computer scientists take in response to this privacy threat? How will the recent revelations affect the future of cryptography—the field of encoding and decoding electronic communication and transmissions for the purposes of privacy, reliability and efficiency?
To address these questions, the Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute will host an hour-long roundtable discussion, moderated by Anton Dahbura, interim executive director of the Information Security Institute, and Avi Rubin, the institute’s technical director. Other participants will include Johns Hopkins cyber-security experts Matthew Green, Stephen Checkoway and Giuseppe Ateniese.
The event will be streamed live at https://connect.johnshopkins.edu/jhuisicrypto/, and also will be posted online following the event.
NOTE: Seating at this public event will be limited. Members of the media who plan to cover the discussion are asked to RSVP to Phil Sneiderman, email@example.com.
Alumna Anita Samarth, BS ’95, CEO and Co-founder of Clinovations Government + Health, will review the basic job search and interview process involved in securing an entry-level position in a management consulting firm.

Jay Gould, professor of photography at Maryland Institute College of Art and HEMI’s 2016 Artist in Residence, will present a variety of new projects that depict and react to the research being done at HEMI in preparation for an exhibition at the MSE Library in April, 2017.
Using a wide range of media and processes, this work reimagines HEMI’s research using playful analogies, unique narratives and unexpected lab documentation, inviting audiences to admire the depth and fascination that extreme materials represent.
Gould received his BFA from the University of Wisconsin and his MFA in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. His work, which integrates scientific topics into installation, and constructed photographic projects, is widely exhibited and has won numerous national awards, such as the Berenice Abbott Prize and the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Festival.
The Extreme Arts Open House provides an opportunity for representatives from HEMI and Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) faculty and students to learn about each other’s research interests and explore potential synergies for either the Artist in Residence program or the Summer Project/Internship.
The event is free. Researchers from HEMI will be onsite and available to discuss their interests in possible collaboration within, but not limited to, the following areas:

Artist Talk 5:30 – 6 PM
Extreme is a word often used to consider the outermost limits. We strive to find the boundaries of our existence, yet we assume that those bounds can always be pushed further. This exhibition of photographs and sculptural works uses analogy and storytelling to playfully describe how HEMI is pushing the extreme boundaries of materials, time, and scale through their research. The audience is invited to consider the imagination required to observe and test a world that is so far beyond our given, natural senses.
