Cybercrime’s Evolution in an Epoch of AI Crime and Accelerating Complexity

APWG celebrates its 20th anniversary by looking ahead to the coming decades that await the larger community of interveners, investigators, policy makers and stakeholders from private and public sectors as they face the increasing challenges posed by AI technologies and the accelerating complexity of the cybercrimes themselves.

The APWG Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (APWG eCrime) is issuing its Call for Papers to announce its 18th annual edition of its peer-reviewed publishing conference – and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the APWG’s founding. APWG eCrime 2023 will be a three-day event hosted in Barcelona by Agència de Ciberseguretat de Catalunya on November 15th to 17th, 2023.

APWG eCrime 2023 combines a peer-reviewed conference with general sessions open to industry, government, law enforcement and multilateral organizations, featuring keynote presentations from global thought-leaders, technical and practical sessions, and interactive panels. The objective of eCrime is to foster practical collaboration and the exchange of catalytic ideas by academic researchers, industry security practitioners, and law enforcement professionals in the global struggle against cybercrime.

APWG eCrime 2023 will look ahead at the future of cybercrime in this uniquely perilous hour, when powerful, accessible AI technologies are cheap and ubiquitous and the compound complexities of technologies, (private and public) policies and network topologies make cybercrime fighting more difficult than ever – with no promise of relief on the horizon.

Notification of acceptance: October 6
Conference: Nov 15-17

eCrime has adopted the IEEE publication format. Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, and formatted using the IEEE conference template, which can be found at:

Submissions should be anonymised, excluding author names, affiliations and acknowledgments. Authors’ own work should be referred to in the third person.

Paper should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, excluding the bibliography and appendices.

Committee members are not required to read appendices, so ensure that the main paper is intelligible without them.

Submitted papers that do not adhere to all the above guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Authors of accepted papers must present them and register at the event.

For paper submissions use the New Submission option at:

Authors will be asked to indicate whether they would like their submissions to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award. Any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. We understand that some authors may face difficulties in obtaining funding to attend the conference. Therefore, a limited number of stipends are available for those who are unable to secure funding. Students who will present their accepted papers themselves will be given priority in receiving such assistance.
