Li Named Editor-In-Chief of ACM's Transactions on Privacy and Security
Ninghui Li, Professor of Computer Science, joined the department in 2003. His research is in security and privacy, including data privacy, applied cryptography, access control, trust management, and human factors in security and privacy. He has published over 200 refereed papers in the area of security research.
“I am looking forward to serving the community in this role,” said Li, “I have new ideas aiming to improve both author and reviewer participation and the impact of the journal on the field.”
Li added, “Specifically, I would like to see what we can learn from conferences, as top conferences in the security field have applied lessons from journals, such as adopting multiple submission deadlines per year and allowing major revisions to be submitted.”
