Theme – Cyber Situational Awareness for Predictive Insight and Deep Learning

 

Call for Papers

IEEE is the Technical Co-Sponsor (TCS) of the International Conference on Cyber Situational Awareness, Data Analytics and Assessment (CyberSA 2019), 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 2019 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 2019 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.

The organisers will accept registration of up to 5 IEEE UK&I Student and YP Members at 75% discounted rate, and will offer up to 20% registration discounts for all IEEE, BCS, IET & IISP members.
