European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference

Couvent des Jacobins, Rennes, France
Co-located with European Cyber Week 2020

About EICC 2020

The European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference – EICC 2020 aims at establishing a venue for the exchange of information on cybersecurity and its many aspects between academics and practitioners in Europe. EICC was formerly known as the Central European Cybersecurity Conference – CECC and has been rebranded to underscore the interdisciplinarity of the conference and broaden its reach. EICC 2020 encourages the dialogue between computer scientists and researchers in all other fields related to cybersecurity, such as behavioral sciences, sociology, criminology, investigations and law. Interdisciplinary contributions are especially welcome.

COVID-19 Update

The EICC 2020 steering committee is carefully watching the COVID-19 situation around the globe and will take all possible measures to ensure the safety of participants on one side and the success of the conference on the other:

  • Authors that cannot present at the conference due to the pandemic will be allowed to present their work virtually.
  • Conference proceedings will be published by ACM ICPS even if we have to switch to an all-virtual conference.

Scope

The conference is devoted to exploring and presenting original innovative applications, scientific and technological advancements in the field of cybersecurity. Topics for this conference include, but are not limited to:

Publication

EICC 2020 proceedings will be published by Association for Computer Machinery (ACM) in the ACM Digital Library within its
International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS).

Proceedings from the previous conferences are available here:

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the special issue on Multidisciplinary Solutions to Modern Cybersecurity Challenges of the Journal of Wireless Mobile Networks, Ubiquitous Computing, and Dependable Applications (JoWUA).

Submission guidelines

The official language of the conference is English. Papers are limited to 6 pages.

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

Papers submitted to EICC 2020 have to use the ACM SigConf template. Please, read template instructions carefully before submitting the paper. The use of the Latex template is strongly encouraged. Non-proficient Latex users are encouraged to use the Overleaf online collaborative Latex platform (ACM Latex template on Overleaf).

Authors of accepted posters should prepare A1 sized posters (portrait or landscape) for the poster exhibition. Other designs may be considered.

The quality of the research papers will be assessed based on its originality, significance and clarity.

All submitted research papers will undergo a double-blind reviewing process. Please, make sure that submitted papers do not contain author names or obvious self-references. Please note that the page limit applies to papers with authors and not the submitted anonymized version.

Each paper will be reviewed by 2-3 reviewers. Afterwards, a discussion will be held by the chairs and reviewers to determine the outcomes of the peer-review.

Submission of a paper implies that at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the conference if the paper is accepted. If an author has more than one accepted paper, each additional accepted paper costs the same fee as the first.

Submit papers using the EICC 2020 submission system.
