Max Schuchard, EECS Assistant Professor in Computer Science, and Jared Smith, EECS Computer Science PhD student, have won first place in the Applied Research Competition at CSAW, the largest student-led cybersecurity competition in the world, now in its 15th year.
The duo took first place for their presentation of their paper “Routing Around Congestion: Defeating DDoS Attacks and Adverse Network Conditions via Reactive BGP Routing.”
Long recognized as the premier showcase for young security researchers whose work has already appeared in peer-reviewed scientific journals and conferences, the Applied Research Competition requires a poster and one student to present the research to a panel of judges.
This competition assesses the top scholarly security research from the previous year. With eligibility limited to previously published papers or camera-ready papers, this competition has a reputation for drawing some of the best security research worldwide.
