UPDATE (3/5/2020): WiCyS 2020 canceled due to COVID-19 concerns!


The 2020 WiCyS annual conference will have four different tracks:

Today’s Technology and Challenges: Current issues and challenges, Advances in research and development (R&D), experimental findings

Career Development: Leadership, advancement

The different types of sessions are:

Technical presentations highlight innovations, research & development projects, internships/co-ops experiences, service-learning and outreach projects, or other interesting experience related to cybersecurity. This is an opportunity to share that experience with others and perhaps inspire them to pursue similar opportunities. Technical Presentations are 45 minutes long, including time for Q&A.

Workshops are free hands-on sessions (technical/professional development) on any topic related to cybersecurity. Hands-on workshops in any cybersecurity area are welcome. The audience is can be students, educators, professionals and researchers (in any combination or by category). Workshops are 2 hours long.

Birds of a Feather are informal discussion sessions on just about any topic related to cybersecurity, that elicit participant discussions. Presenters lead the discussion from audience. These sessions can be a great way to share ideas and be introduced to current issues or trends in this area. BoaF sessions are 45 minutes long.

Lightning talks highlight fresh ideas, unique perspectives, valuable experiences, and emerging trends in cybersecurity. Lightning Talks are five-minute presentations (with or without formal presentations) that seek to jump-start discussions and collaborations while soliciting feedback from the community.

Panels provide opportunities to discuss a current relevant topic in cybersecurity. Panel organizers are responsible for selecting appropriate panelists to participate. In addition to the moderator, there can be up to 4 panelists and each panel is 45 minutes long. Submit all names and their affiliation info along with the abstract.
