Usable Security & Privacy

Usable Security & Privacy is concerned with approaches and concepts that align security and privacy promoting procedures for software and interactive products more closely with the goals and tasks of the user and ensure that the functioning of security elements is also understandable for non-experts.

B(ee)oinspiration & B(ee)omimetics

B(ee)oinspiration & B(ee)omimetics research involving the study and distillation of principles and functions found in superorganisms that have been developed through evolution, and application of this knowledge to produce novel and exciting basic technologies and new approaches to solving problems. The project aims to include input from across all intersecting areas of both fields. In biology, especially with highly eusocial creatures, this would include work in all fields from physiology to ecology, with either zoological or botanical focus. In engineering, this would include both design and practical application of b(ee)omimetic or b(ee)oinspired devices and systems.
