SciSec 2021 : The 3rd International Conference on Science of Cyber Security
Call For Papers
The 3rd International Conference on Science of Cyber Security (SciSec 2021) will be held August 13-15, 2021 in Shanghai, China. The conference is organized by Fudan University.
SciSec was initiated in 2018 and aims to catalyze the research collaborations between the relevant communities and disciplines that can work together to deepen our understanding of, and build a firm foundation for, the emerging Science of Cyber Security. Publications in this venue would distinguish themselves from others by taking or thinking from a holistic perspective about cybersecurity, rather than a building-block perspective.
The program committee plans to select and award a Best Paper and a Best Student Paper. The post-conference proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, indexed by EI. Accepted posters will be invited to submit full version papers to International Journal of Digital Crime and Forensics (IJDCF, indexed by ESCI and EI) via the IGI Global system, which requires new template of materials. Submissions accepted by SciSec 2021, their extended version will also be accepted by IJDCF after a standard review process of IJDCF. And SciSec is on the list of international conferences recommended by Institute of Information Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IIE_C).
The conference solicits high-quality, original research papers that can justifiably help achieve the ultimate Science of Cyber Security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
*Cybersecurity Metrics and Their Measurements
*First-principle Cybersecurity Modeling and Analysis
*Cybersecurity Data Analytics
*Quantitative Risk Management for Cybersecurity
*Big Data for Cybersecurity
*Artificial Intelligence for Cybersecurity
*Machine Learning for Cybersecurity
*Economics Approaches for Cybersecurity
*Social Sciences Approaches for Cybersecurity
*Statistical Physics Approaches for Cybersecurity
*Complexity Sciences Approaches for Cybersecurity
*Statistics Approaches for Cybersecurity
*Human Factors for Cybersecurity
*Biology-inspired Approaches for Cybersecurity
Instructions for Authors
Authors are invited to submit original papers not previously published nor submitted in parallel for publication to any other conference, workshop or journal. All submitted papers must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references.
