The 1st International Conference on Science of Cyber Security (SciSec 2018)

August 12-14, 2018    Beijing, China


The 1st International Conference on Science of Cyber Security (SciSec
2018) will be held August 12-14, 2018 in Beijing, China. The
conference is organized by the Institute of Information Engineering,
Chinese Academy of Sciences. This new forum aims to catalyze the
research collaborations between the relevant communities and
disciplines that can work together to deepen our understanding of, and
build a firm foundation for, the emerging Science of Cyber Security.
Publications in this venue would distinguish themselves from others by
taking or thinking from a holistic perspective about cyber security,
rather than the building-block perspective. Each submission will be
reviewed (double blind) by at least 3 reviewers. The program committee
plans to select and award a Best Paper and a Best Student Paper. The
post-conference proceedings will be published in Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
