CONFERENCE DATE: April 7-9, 2021

Authors are solicited to contribute to the conference by submitting articles that illustrate research, project results and surveys that describe advances and experiences in the areas of cyber security. The ITASEC21 conference solicits two kinds of submissions:

  1. Original, unpublished contributions that will be included in an open-access, post-conference proceedings to be published as a volume of CEUR Workshop Proceedings, indexed by Scopus and DBLP;
  2. Already published or preliminary work for oral presentation. This material will not be included in the post-conference proceedings volume.

Authors are requested to indicate whether their paper should be included or not in the proceedings volume.

Any paper related to cybersecurity is welcome. Topics of interest encompass all areas of cybersecurity, including research domains such as:

  • Authorization and Authentication
  • Big Data security
  • Cloud security
  • Cryptography and Cryptanalysis
  • Cyber education and training
  • Data security and privacy
  • Digital forensics
  • Formal models in security
  • Hardware and device security

  • Incident management
  • Legal aspects and compliance
  • Monitoring and detection
  • Network security
  • Security management and governance
  • Software vulnerability and assessment
