March 3, 2016

Cambridge 2 Cambridge (C2C) is a two-part international cybersecurity challenge between MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) and the University of Cambridge. C2C will engage participants to explore creative ways to combat increased global cyber attacks, influence policy trends and develop products unimaginable until now! C2C will feature two parts: a team-based ‘capture-the-flag’ style hackathon and a “Shark Tank” format start-up competition. The hackathon will include teams of students from MIT and Cambridge University who will compete in a 24-hour session at CSAIL beginning at 5pm on March 4, 2016. The event will be comprised of a graduated set of exercises in binary exploitation, web security, reverse engineering, cryptography and forensics in a scored CTF competition. There will also be several open interactive activities as well. The kick-off reception for C2C will be held at MIT’s Ray and Maria Stata Center in Cambridge, MA, at 2:00 p.m., hosted by MIT’s CyberSecurity@CSAIL to support initiatives advancing cybersecurity technologies. Winners from both competitions will be announced on March 5, 2016, and prizes of over $70,000 will be awarded! The event timeline is as follows:
