The Strage Foundation and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev invite eligible candidates
to submit nominations for the Strage-BGU Award for Excellence in Cyber Security Research.
The award, accompanied by a prize of $5,000, will be granted to a scientist for outstanding and potentially
influential scientific achievements in cyber security research during the years 2018-2022. The list of
accomplishments should include papers published during 2018-2022 in leading journals and conferences,
as well as books, patents, and any other significant scientific accomplishments made during this period of
time. Special emphasis will be given to the potential of the nominee's scientific work to make a long-term
impact on cyber security theory and practice as well as on related domains such as artificial intelligence and
machine learning security (e.g., adversarial machine learning attacks and defenses, privacy, and bias on machine
learning models), differential privacy, cryptography, and blockchain security.
Nomination forms should be received by October 7, 2022.
The award winner will be required to make a presentation summarizing his/her major findings at Ben-Gurion
