Call For Papers

The thirteenth Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (eCrime) 2018 will be held between May 14th - 16th 2018 in San Diego, CA.

eCrime 2018 consists of 3 days of keynote presentations, technical and practical sessions, and interactive panels. This will allow for the academic researchers, security practitioners, and law enforcement to discuss and exchange ideas, experiences and lessons learnt in all aspects of electronic crime and ways to combat it.

This conference has two publication tracks to help attract research covering applied, industrial cybercrime research as well as applied and/or theoretical cybercrime academic research. To further strengthen the confidence in each track, there have been two managing chairs and committees appointed for reviewing and selecting papers for each track of the cybercrime conference.

The conference offers travel grants to students who are having issues finding the funding to attend the conference. Note that there is a set final date for requesting the stipend so please get your requests in as soon as possible after hearing back about your paper’s acceptance. eCrime 2018 also has a best paper and runner-up award that is accompanied by a cash reward for the top papers submitted to the academic track only.
