European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference

About EICC 2022

The European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference – EICC 2022 aims at establishing a venue for the exchange of information on cybersecurity and its many aspects between academics and practitioners in Europe. EICC was until 2019 known as the Central European Cybersecurity Conference – CECC and has been rebranded to underscore the interdisciplinarity of the conference and broaden its reach. EICC 2022 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.

EICC 2022 is planned as a face-to-face conference with the possibility for remote participation.

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:

The conference will offer a Best paper award and Best poster award. The awards will be announced and bestowed at the conference closing session. The award will be conferred to the author(s) of awarded papers who will be present at the conference. The decision criterion will consider both the paper/poster quality and the oral presentation quality.

Papers submitted to EICC 2022 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).

Word users: For peer review, use the two-column template. Keep in mind that you will need to submit the paper in the one-column template to TAPS after acceptance. The final paper will be published in a two-column format.

Latex users: Use only the two-column template (first line in the document: \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}). Keep in mind that TAPS supports only specific packages.

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 camera-ready papers with author names included 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.

Authors of accepted posters should prepare A1 sized posters (portrait or landscape) for the poster exhibition. Other designs may be considered. Titles of poster submissions should be prefixed with POSTER (e.g., POSTER: The role of information sensitivity in adoption of E2EE communication software ).

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

Submit papers using EICC 2022 submission system.

Full papers can exceed the page limit by a maximum of 2 pages. Each additional page above the page limit will be charged on top of the registration fee.

Call for special sessions

EICC 2022 is inviting proposals for Special Sessions. The typical goal of a special session is to present and discuss in a thorough and more narrow manner a specific aspect of cybersecurity and its interdisciplinary nature. EICC 2022 provides special session organizers with the opportunity to publish accepted special session papers as part of its conference proceedings. To be included in the EICC 2022 proceedings, special session papers must follow the conference submission guidelines and undergo the same rigorous reviewing process as conference papers.
