Carnegie Mellon University will coordinate a public conference planned by a federal agency in May for anyone interested in contributing to the nation's cybersecurity framework, officials announced Wednesday.

The May 29-31 event will be hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the federal agency tasked with reducing cybersecurity risks to critical infrastructure. It will be coordinated by CERT, a division of Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute.

Organizers are still working to get a venue large enough to accommodate such a public event, so information about registering for the conference is not yet available.
