European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference (EICC)

The European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference (EICC) is the flagship annual international cybersecurity conference overseen by the Faculty of Criminal Justice and Security at the University of Maribor. EICC 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.
