Symposium on Electronic Crime Research
For 2019 APWG's members will once again come together to bridge the gaps between cybersecurity operations, research and consumer messaging with our fourteenth Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (eCrime 2019).
The 2019 program is co-hosted by our partners CyLab at Carnegie Mellon University and The National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA). eCrime 2019 will begin with a one day CTF program and a Workshop to deep dive into specific challenges investigating and fighting cybercrime.
The main three day program will include presentation around the operational, technological and social challenges in the cybersecurity industry and law enforcement. Insight from around the world from industry, government, law and forcement will be brought together with academia to direct resources and focus efforts in this dynamic threatscape.
With eCrime 2019 we will review the development of response paradigms and resources for counter-cybercrime managers and forensic professionals in the private and public sectors. Presenters will review case studies of national and regional economies under attack, narratives of successful trans-national forensic cooperation, while considering models for cooperation against ecrime and examining resources for cybercrime response and forensic enterprise.
This program will be held on November 12th - 15th at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.
Please contact Deputy-Secretary Foy Shiver for details via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call for Research Papers
eCrime 2019 consists of a 4 day program. One day of Workshops and CTF followed by 3 days of keynote presentations, technical and practical sessions, and interactive panels. An overarching goal of these meetings is bringing together academic researchers, industry security practitioners, and law enforcement to discuss and exchange ideas, experiences and lessons learnt combating cybecrime.
The conference offers travel grants to students of accepted work who are having issues finding the funding to attend. Note that there is a set final date for requesting the stipend, please get your requests in as soon as possible after hearing back about your paper’s acceptance. eCrime 2019 also has a best paper and runner-up award that is accompanied by a cash reward for the top papers submitted.
Submission topics include but are not limited to:
Accepted papers will be published in proceedings with IEEE. In addition, cash awards will be given for the best paper overall and the best student co-authored paper. A limited number of cash travel awards will also be made to student authors of papers and posters.
Instructions for Authors
eCrime has adopted the IEEE publication format. Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, formatted using the the IEEE conference template, found here: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. Submissions should include author names, affiliations and acknowledgments. They should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, not counting the bibliography and appendices. Papers should begin with a title, abstract, and an introduction that clearly summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Papers should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation, relevance to practical applications, and a clear comparison with related work. Committee members are not required to read appendices, and papers should be intelligible without them. Submitted papers risk being rejected without consideration of their merits if they do not follow all the above guidelines. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.
Authors will be asked to indicate whether their submissions should be considered for the best student paper award; any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. A limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves are given priority to receive such assistance. Requests for stipends should be addressed to the general chair after the September 30th paper notifications.
For paper submissions in 2019 please register an account then use the New Submission option at https://ecrime2019.hotcrp.com/.
