UT Professor Max Schuchard to Discuss Safe and Secure Internet Access in the Face of Extreme Censorship April 20

Max Schuchard, assistant professor in the UT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science will present “Taking a Car Ride to Twitter: Defeating Internet Censorship Through Mobility,” at the next UT Science Forum Friday, April 20.

Repressive nations have taken increasingly extreme steps to restrict their citizen’s ability to freely access the Internet. The most notable examples include the total disconnection of a country from the Internet, as seen in Egypt during the Arab Spring and Syria during their civil war. In his presentation, Schuchard will explore the challenges researchers in the VolSec computer security lab are solving in order to provide safe and secure Internet access despite such extreme acts of Internet censorship.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, April 20 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
