European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference

Democritus University of Thrace, Xanthi, Greece

5–6 June 2024

About the conference

The European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference – EICC 2024 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 2024 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 2024 is planned as a face-to-face conference.

Papers submitted to EICC 2024 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 A0 sized posters (portrait) for the poster exhibition. Other designs may be considered.

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 as online regular registration fee.

Call for special sessions

EICC 2024 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 2024 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 2024 proceedings, special session papers must follow the conference submission guidelines and undergo the same rigorous reviewing process as conference papers.
