Our apologies if you received multiple copies of this Call For Papers



5th Cyber Security in Networking Conference

12 - 14 October 2021 // Abu Dhabi, UAE (Hybrid Conference)

CSNet 2021 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE ComSoc
All accepted & presented papers will be published in IEEE Xplore
Best papers will be considered for fast-track publication in the Annals of Telecommunications (Springer, ISI-indexed)


Paper submission deadline: June 20, 2021 (Firm deadline)

After the first successful edition of CSNet 2017 in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the second edition CSNet 2018 in Paris (France), the third edition CSNet 2019 in Quito (Ecuador), CSNet 2020 in Lausanne (Switzerland) (Online), the fifth edition of CSNet conference will be held in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) next October 12-14, 2021. We are seeking for papers, poster and demos papers as well as tutorials in the cybersecurity domain.
The driving theme at CSNet 2021 is Cyber Security in Networking. The technological disruption is generating an impact on society and leading to a new industrial revolution. This social and industrial change presents new technological environments constituted by ubiquitous systems and large amounts of information, which requires a change in the way how cybersecurity is applied. The use of big data, machine learning, data science, data mining, strengthens the cognitive skills of security analysts to face new forms of cybersecurity attacks. This new trend, called cognitive security, poses new challenges for researchers and companies to seek proactive security proposals according to this technological change.

The CSNet 2021 conference program will be split into the following tracks:
Track 1: Cyber Security in Vehicular Networks
Track 2: Cyber Security of Virtual infrastructures
Track 3: Blockchain
Track 4: Cyber Security of Critical Infrastructures
Track 5: Network security
Track 6: Usability-Security track
Track 7: Forensic track
Track 8: Cyber Security for the Navy

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Attacks on Virtualized Systems
Balancing Trust and Control
Cell Phones vulnerabilities
Cloud of Security
Cognitive Security
Concealing Malware (Trojan Horses-Root kits-Logic Bombs)
Cyber-attacks Cloud-oriented vs Cyber defense Cloud-oriented
