Call For Papers


The 2nd International Conference on Science of Cyber Security (SciSec'2019)

August 9-11, 2019, Nanjing, China





The 2nd International Conference on Science of Cyber Security (SciSec'2019) will be held August 9-11, 2019 in Nanjing, China. The conference is organized by the Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications. This new forum 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 cyber security, rather than the building-block perspective. Each submission will be reviewed (double blind) by at least 3 reviewers. The program committee plans to select and award a Best Paper and a Best Student Paper. The post-conference proceedings will be published in Springers Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Selected papers from the ones published in the post-conference proceedings will be invited to submit to a special issue of the Information Systems Frontier journal (officially approved; see, which requires substantial new materials and has its own review process.



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 Dynamics

Cybersecurity Metrics and Their Measurements

First-principle Cybersecurity Modeling and Analysis (e.g., Dynamical Systems, Control-Theoretic, and Game-Theoretic Modeling)

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

Experimental Cybersecurity

Macroscopic Cybersecurity

Statistics Approaches for Cybersecurity

Human Factors for Cybersecurity

Compositional Security

Biology-inspired Approaches for Cybersecurity

Synergetics Approaches for Cybersecurity



Submissions must be written in English and in the PDF format. Submissions should be made anonymous (i.e., no author names and affiliations information). The length limit is 15 pages (everything included). Authors should use Springer's template which is available at Submission of a paper is regarded as a commitment that at least one of its authors will register and attend the conference to present the work.
