TUTORIALS, SUMMER SCHOOLS, and WORKSHOPS
I regularly give tutorials on processor architectures and hardware security.
Most recently I presented a tutorial on Security of Quantum Computing Systems,
as part of IEEE Quantum Week 2023.
Among others, I have also previously given (virtual) tutorial on Securing Processor Architectures,
as part of ASPLOS 2021, for example.
I have taught as part of the summer school on
Advanced Computer Architecture and Compilation for High-Performance and Embedded Systems,
in July 14-20, 2019, in Fiuggi, Italy, where I gave lectures on Processor Architecture Security.
I am an associate editor of ACM Transactions on Architecture and Code Optimization (TACO)
and IEEE Computer Architecture Letters (CAL)
and Springer's Journal of Hardware and Systems Security (JHSS)
I am founder and organizer of the Quantum Computer Cybersecurity Symposium held for the first time on Nov. 9, 2023.
I was co-organizer of the workshop on Hardware and Architectural Support for Security and Privacy (HASP)
