The Annual Meeting will be hosted for the 46th consecutive year by the Computer Forum at the Arrillaga Alumni Center at Stanford University. The three-day event will present opportunities for our industrial partners to hear about latest developments in timely and critical areas of technology.

The Annual Security Workshop, now in its 15th year, will present cutting edge research on computer security from the Stanford Security Lab. Topics include web security, security for embedded devices and mobile phones, operating systems, code analysis, secure user interfaces, cryptography, and many others. The workshop is organized by Professors Dan Boneh and John Mitchell and will involve talks from faculty and PhD students.

The theme of the Plenary Session, organized by Professor Dan Boneh, will be "Security and Privacy in a Digital World" and will feature selected talks by faculty and industry leaders. It will also be an opportunity to meet some of the department's brilliant recent hires, and get an insider glimpse into exciting projects in Silicon Valley such as PrivateCore's private computing system.

The seated luncheon will feature a presentation by Cindy Cohn on NSA Spying. The day will conclude with a reception and a poster session of CS and EE student research.

This workshop, organized by Professor Leonidas Guibas, addresses the problem of extracting and exploiting shared structure in data such as GPS traces, images, videos, 3D scans, or even homework assignments in a class. It is a timely topics, because the more data we get from sensors, simulations, or the activities of individuals, the more inter-related the data becomes, reflecting shared structures, as well as symmetries, repetitions, hierarchies, etc. in the entities giving rise to the data.

The workshop presents a set of techniques for making relationships or correspondences between data sets first-class citizens -- so that the relationships themselves become explicit, algebraic, storable and searchable objects. Networks of such relations can interconnect data sets into societies where network analysis methods can enable the "wisdom of the collection" to be exploited in performing operations on individual data sets robustly, or in further assessing relationships between them. In this way, by creating societies of data sets and their associations in a globally consistent way, we enable a certain joint understanding that provides the powers of abstraction, analogy, compression, error correction, and summarization.

Example applications to be discussed will include image and shape segmentation, variability analysis in shape collections, shape affordances, and the evaluation of programming assignments in MOOCs.
