From: NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence

NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence is proud to announce the Call for Papers for the anniversary conference on cyber conflict in 2018, CyCon C.  To celebrate the milestone the cyber security community is invited to shape the focus of the 10th CyCon. Instead of setting a predefined core topic for this conference, the research community is welcomed to submit original research papers on their choice of the most topical and current cyber security issues, from technical, legal, policy, strategy or military perspectives.

In 2009 NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence conducted its first cyber security conferences. At the time, two separate conferences were organised, focusing on legal and technological aspects and research of Cyber Conflict. Now, after 9 iterations, the International Conference on Cyber Conflict is a unique annual conference hosting all focus areas of cyber conflict in a single event. CyCon brings together the different tribes of cyber defence – techies, lawyers, researchers, policy advisors, industry experts, government officials and military top brass.\

Details and guidelines on the Call for Papers 2018 is available and also enclosed here.

The 9th International Conference on Cyber Conflict, CyCon 2017, took place in Tallinn from May 30th to June 2nd 2017, joining altogether nearly 600 key experts and decision-makers of the global cyber defence community.
