The 20th International Symposium on Research in Attacks, Intrusions and
Defenses (RAID 2017), previously known as Recent Advances in Intrusion
Detection, aims at bringing together leading researchers and 
practitioners from
academia, government, and industry to discuss novel research contributions
related to computer and information security. RAID 2017 will be held in
Atlanta, Georgia on September 18-20, 2017

RAID is an international event that brings together leading researchers and
practitioners from academia, government, and industry. Attendees are from
prestigious universities, government and high technology companies all over
the world.

Attendees typically include:

  - Researchers working in the field of computer and information security
  - Academics studying the field of cyber security
  - Incident response and security teams with responsibility for 
coordinating computer security
  - Technical staff who determine security product needs and implement 
  - Anyone wanting to learn more about computer security in general

RAID 2017 is an excellent opportunity to discuss cutting-edge research
in intrusion detection and defenses, malware, application security,
anomaly detection, special environments and sandboxing, web security
and social networks, and network security, among other topics.
