IEEE is the Technical Co-Sponsor (TCS) of the International Conference on Cyber Situational Awareness, Data Analytics and Assessment (CyberSA 2017), an international refereed conference dedicated to the advancement of the principles, methods and applications of situation awareness on Cyber Systems, Business Information Systems (BIS), Computer Network Defence (CND), Critical National Infrastructures (CNI), Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoTs).
The aim of the CyberSA 2017 is to encourage participation and promotion of collaborative scientific, industrial and academic inter-workings among individual researchers, practitioners, members of existing associations, academia, standardisation bodies, and including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different cultures.
CyberSA 2017 invites researchers and industry practitioners to submit papers that encompass principles, analysis, design, methods and applications. All submitted papers are independently peer-reviewed.
The conference proceedings will be submitted for consideration for publishing and listing on the following bibliographic indexes: IEEE Computer Society Digital Library, IEEE Xplore Digital Library, DBLP Computer Science, Scopus, CiteSeerX, Computer Science Index, EI Compendex, Academic Search Complete, CiteULike, Google Scholar & Microsoft Academic Search.
CyberSA 2017 is co-located with other conferences as part of Cyber Science 2017.
Posters will be presented during the conference.
Industry track is available for discussing and publishing pilot and proof of concepts.
Work in Progress track is available for preliminary work.
Research Ideas track is available for ideas in early stages assessment.
PhD Seminar track is available for discussing and publishing early PhD thesis research.
Deadline for all paper submissions, that is, both full papers and extended abstracts for Poster, WIP, PoC, Research Idea and PhD Seminar presentations is 14th January 2017.
All Industry track, Work in Progress track, Research Ideas track and PhD Seminar track will be published in the conference proceedings. Interested participants, please submit your proposal using the online submission system hosted by Easychair Conference Portal.
Full paper submission should be via Easychair Conference Portal.
