CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS
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.
