IEEE International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security

Scope and Topics:

Cyber Security is a rapidly growing global challenge with new sophisticated zero-day attacks costing economies billion of dollars annually. Cyber attacks may particularly affect the developed world, but developing countries are also at higher risk due to the lack of expertise and shortage of security professionals with adequate skills and experience to effectively combat the rising threats. Keeping this perspective, National Centre for Cyber Security (NCCS) Pakistan is organizing its first annual conference titled: “IEEE International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS-2020)” to be held from 31st March to 2nd April, 2020, technically sponsored by IEEE.

ICCWS-2020 aims to provide a platform to researchers around the World to share contemporary research and experiences related to emerging areas of cyber security. The conference will include high-quality and focused technical program on cyber security with keynotes and invited talks from prominent industry and academia experts. It will also feature an attractive Lab-to-Market event to showcase research, industrial exhibitions and cyber security ideas competition aimed at industry practitioners, vendors, ambitious students, and local start-up companies.

Submissions are solicited in the following topics and related areas:

• Networks and infrastructure security
• Hardware and systems security
• Operating systems and software security
• Embedded systems, IoT and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) security
• Web, Big data and Cloud security
• Edge/Fog computing and data centre security
