Event Details

A high-impact two day workshop on the causes and potential mitigations of domain name collisions is being organized for March 8-10, 2014. Research submissions are sought for presentation in the workshop and entry into the competition. A prize committee at the workshop, basing its determinations on both the advance submissions and the in-person presentations of the submissions, will award $50,000 for the most valuable research contribution, one that most advances the state of knowledge and/or most deeply analyzes and mitigates risk. Additional prizes will be awarded, a second prize of $25,000, and up to five third prizes of $10,000.
