The INEX meeting will be held on Thursday, 26th September 2019 in Explorium, the national sports and science centre in Sandyford, Dublin. Registration will open at 12:30pm with the presentations beginning at 1pm.
The meeting will be held in Explorium’s purpose-built lecture theatre and will be followed by the Explorium challenge (from 5pm) where everyone can text their scientific thinking and sports strength against various science and sports challenges. Explorium is a large new venue that opened a few months back and features a number of excellent G-force, VR, physical and sports challenges. The Lightning room contains Ireland’s First Tesla Coil, invented by Serbian inventor, Nikola Tesla. This Tesla coil generates high frequency, high voltage electricity, and huge electromagnetic fields that make the show possible. A Faraday cage will ensure we do not risk the welfare of the internet community!
We are very appreciative of the enthusiasm and support of ESB Telecoms and the team there in sponsoring this meeting and event.
The INEX Meeting and Explorium Challenge event will be followed by food and drinks in Sandyford House (2KM) away. We will be arranging transport from Explorium to Sandyford House for those that have not driven. Sandyford House is walking distance to the Luas (Tram) stop for those returning to the city centre.

The last 10-20 years, the strategies antagonists use for taking control over the target have changed. The change started in the military tactics and doctrines, but can today be seen when looking at cyber. Protection against such modern antagonists is not easy. Falling back to traditional mechanisms we all know and love is of course the easiest. Patrik will both explain how he believes modern antagonists think and plan their work and how traditional planning of robustness, redundancy and diversity are good protection mechanisms to also modern cyber warfare.

Biog: Nicole Starosielski’s research focuses on the global distribution of digital media, and the relationship between technology, society, and the aquatic environment. Her book, The Undersea Network, examines the cultural and environmental dimensions of transoceanic cable systems, beginning with the telegraph cables that formed the first global communications network and extending to the fiber-optic infrastructure that carries almost international Internet traffic. Starosielski has published essays on how Fiji’s video stores serve as a nexus of digital media access (Media Fields Journal), on Guam’s critical role in transpacific digital exchange (Amerasia), on the cultural imbrications of cable systems in Hawaii and California (Journal of Visual Culture), and photo essays on undersea cables (Octopus and Media-N). Before coming to NYU, she taught at Miami University of Ohio. She received her Ph.D. from UC-Santa Barbara.
