Call For Papers

The European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference – EICC 2021 aims at establishing a venue for the exchange of information on cybersecurity and its many aspects between academics and practitioners in Europe. EICC was until 2019 known as the Central European Cybersecurity Conference – CECC and has been rebranded to underscore the interdisciplinarity of the conference and broaden its reach. EICC 2021 encourages the dialogue between computer scientists and researchers in all other fields related to cybersecurity, such as behavioral sciences, sociology, criminology, investigations and law. Interdisciplinary contributions are especially welcome.

== COVID-19 update ==

EICC 2021 switched to a *fully virtual* conference. Conference proceedings will be published by ACM as planned.

== Publication ==

EICC 2021 proceedings will be published by Association for Computer Machinery (ACM) in the ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS).

Proceedings from the previous conferences are available here:

* EICC 2020 (published by ACM):
* CECC 2019 (published by ACM):
* CECC 2018 (published by ACM):
* CECC 2017 (published by University of Maribor Press):

== Important dates ==

Submission deadline: ** 30 June 2021 ** (extended)
Author notification: 25 July 2021
Poster submission: 23 August 2021
Doctoral Symposium submission: 23 August 2021
Camera-ready: 27 September 2021

== Submission guidelines ==

The official language of the conference is English. Papers are limited to 6 pages.

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

* Full papers reporting on original research findings (5-6 pages)
* Short papers reporting on original research findings (2-4 pages)
* Posters (extended abstracts) reporting on original research findings (1-2 pages)
* Doctoral Symposium papers (2-4 pages)

The conference will offer a *Best paper award* and a *Best Doctoral Symposium paper award*. The awards will be announced and bestowed at the conference closing session. The award will be conferred to the author(s) of awarded papers who will be present at the conference. The decision criterion will consider both the paper quality and the oral presentation quality.

Papers submitted to EICC 2021 have to use the ACM SigConf template. Please, read template instructions carefully before submitting the paper. The use of the Latex template is strongly encouraged. Non-proficient Latex users are encouraged to use the Overleaf online collaborative Latex platform (ACM Latex template on Overleaf).

Word users: For peer review, use the two-column template. Keep in mind that you will need to submit the paper in the one-column template to TAPS after acceptance. The final paper will be published in a two-column format.

Latex users: Use only the two-column template (first line in the document: \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}). Keep in mind that TAPS supports only specific packages (

The quality of the research papers will be assessed based on its originality, significance and clarity.

All submitted research papers will undergo a double-blind reviewing process. Please, make sure that submitted papers do not contain author names or obvious self-references. Please note that the page limit applies to papers with authors and not the submitted anonymized version.

Each paper will be reviewed by 2-3 reviewers. Afterwards, a discussion will be held by the chairs and reviewers to determine the outcomes of the peer-review.

Authors of accepted posters should prepare A1 sized posters (portrait or landscape) for the poster exhibition. Other designs may be considered. Titles of poster submissions should be prefixed with POSTER (e.g., POSTER: The role of information sensitivity in adoption of E2EE communication software).

Titles of papers submitted to the Doctoral Symposium should be prefixed with DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM (e.g., DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM: A novel approach for acquiring training and software security requirements).

Submission of a paper / poster implies that at least one of the authors will register and present the paper / poster at the conference if the paper / poster is accepted. If an author has more than one accepted paper / poster, each additional accepted paper / poster costs the same fee as the first.
