EICC 2020 : European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference
Call For Papers
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.
EICC 2020 is organized by National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology - Inria / CentraleSupélec and will be co-located with European Cyber Week 2020:
== 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 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: https://jowua.com/) - Indexed in Sciverse, Scopus; SJR Q2.
== 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:
*Full papers* reporting on original research findings (5-6 pages)
*Short papers* reporting on original research findings (2-4 pages)
*Posters* (extended abstracts) reporting on original research findings (1-2 pages)
Papers submitted to EICC 2020 have to use the ACM SigConf template (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-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: https://www.overleaf.com/gallery/tagged/acm-official#.WOuOk2e1taQ).
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.
