Please refer to this srg mailing list page on how to subscribe to our SRG mailing list.


What do I need to do if I am the presenter of the next SRG meeting?

Generally, you need to:

(1) Find a paper to present

(2) Send an announcement email

(3) Modify the SRG webpage correspodingly


Find a paper to present

The paper you choose, must be within the security area. It is better to be a paper which was accepted by a higher rank conference (such as the rank1 & rank2 conferences listed in Security Conference Ranking and Statistic).


Send out an announcement email

An annoucement email must be sent out at least two days before the SRG meeting.

This step will be must easier if you've already finished the 3.(a) part (which is the first task of modifying the SRG website).

Basically, you need to send an email to "srg@flyer.sis.smu.edu.sg" with the title: Next SRG presentation by XXX. (XXX is your full name)

In the body of this email, you need to specify the date, time, and location of the next SRG meeting. You will also need to give title and authors of the paper you're going to present, together with a link of the paper where others can download the whole paper. It will be much easier for you to construct this email if you've finished 3.(a) part since the information needed in this email body is exactly you have put onto the SRG webpage. You can simply copy the SRG Message Board part into your email body and send it out once you've finished 3.(a).


Modify the SRG webpage correspodingly

You need to modify the SRG main page twice if you're the presenter of the next SRG meeting.

First of all, in order to be able to edit the SRG web page, you need to log in the wiki page with your SMU account. Simply click the "Log in / create account" link at the right top corner of the web page.

You can read the help pages and view this video tutorial to learn how to use/modify this wiki.


(a) The first modification needs to be done at least two days before the SRG meeting.

Basically, you need to provide certain information at Message Board part in the Security Reading Group main page.

The completed Message Board should look like the following:

The following presentation will be given by HAN Jin.

Time: 10:30am~11:30am on Jan. 12th, 2011. (Wednesday)

Location: Meeting Room 4-4 at School of Information Systems.

Paper:

Ana Nora Sovarel, David Evans, and Nathanael Paul. Where's the FEEB? the effectiveness of instruction set randomization. In Proceedings of the 14th conference on USENIX Security Symposium, 2005. PDF

As can be seen from the above example in the text box, you need to specify who is the presenter, when and where will the next SRG meeting be held, and also which paper will be presented. You need to give the link of the presenter and also the link of the paper source so that others can download the paper to read before the SRG meeting. If you are going to use an existing slides file for you presentation, you can also add a link to indicate the Original Slides you will use. You can also upload a pdf/ppt file (such as Pdf logo.gif PDF Ppt small.gif Slides) if you've created your own slides for this presentation. Refering to the help pages if you do not know how to upload files into wiki.

Finally, you need to give the paper description into this format:

Authors of the paper, the paper title (in Bold), the corresponding conference/proceedings/journal (in Italic), year, and the link of the paper.


(b) The second modification should be carried out right after you finish your SRG presentation.

Generally, you need to move part of the information of Message Board into Past Presented Paper List. Basically, in the Past Presented Paper List, you need to specify which paper has just been presented, and presented by whom. An example is given as follows:

Ana Nora Sovarel, David Evans, and Nathanael Paul. Where's the FEEB? the effectiveness of instruction set randomization. In Proceedings of the 14th conference on USENIX Security Symposium, 2005. PDF Original Slides presented by HAN Jin.

As you can see, it's very similar as the information you've given in the Message Board, so you can just move the source code of that part into the Past Presented Paper List and change it accordingly.

Finally, you need to modify the Message Board to indicate who is the next presenter and when will the next presentation be held. The order of presenters follow exactly as the alphabetical order in the Current Group Members list. So you need to replace your name (which is in the Message Board) into the name of the next presenter in the list. And usually, the time of the next SRG meeting is two weeks after the current one. So you need to replace the date into the day two weeks later. Finally, since you do not know what is the next paper, you can leave the paper part as (TBD), which means To Be Determined. An example of the Message Board after the second modification is given as follows (suppose LU Kangjie is the next presenter who is right after HAN Jin in the Current Group Members list):

The following presentation will be given by LU Kangjie

Time: 10:30am~11:30am on Jan. 26th, 2011. (Wednesday)

Location: Meeting Room 4-4 at School of Information Systems.

Paper:

(TBD)
