About Reconnect Workshops The CCICADA Summer Reconnect Workshops expose faculty teaching undergraduates to the role of the mathematical and computer sciences in homeland security and provide an opportunity to researchers in government or industry to learn about new research in various areas. Topics are presented in a week-long series of lectures and activities; participants are involved in both research activities and in writing materials that can be used in the classroom or to share with their colleagues. Participants may develop materials for publication in the CCICADA Research Reports. 2016 Topic: Mathematical and Computational Tools for Cyber Security Day 1 will feature Historical Encryption (Caesar to early 1900s) and Encryption Analysis (how to attack ciphers mathematically)
