    Santos® is a human simulator developed at the University of Iowa which aids in the reduction of load for the US Marines, tests new equipment for the US Army, and helps design new vehicles for the auto manufacturing industry.  Santos® is a computer program developed over the past 12 years by a team of about 50 researchers.  Santos® operates inside a computer and can check for all types of scenarios before the equipment or vehicle is built, thus reducing cost and time. Professor Abdel-Malek will discuss his experience working with Santos® on ongoing research.

    Geometric range search is a fundamental primitive for spatial data analysis in SQL and NoSQL databases. It has extensive applications in Location-Based Services, computational geometry, and computer-aided design. Due to the dramatic increase of data size, it is necessary for companies and organizations to outsource their spatial datasets to third-party cloud services (e.g. Amazon) in order to reduce storage and query processing costs, but meanwhile with the promise of no privacy leakage to the third party.

    Widely used systems such as operating systems and web servers are implemented in unsafe programming languages for efficiency, and system designers often prioritize performance over security. Hence, these foundational systems inherently suffer from a variety of vulnerabilities and insecure designs that have been exploited by adversaries to launch critical system attacks. Two typical goals of these attacks are to leak sensitive data and to control victim systems.
