    • Socio-legal issues regarding cyber crime policies and practices,
    • Security standards and regulations,
    • Cyber security and privacy policies,
    • Law enforcement and cyber space,
    • Digital forensics and law,
    • Interoperability standards,
    • Cyber development strategies and policies

Instruction for Paper Submission

All submissions must be original work; the submitter must clearly document any overlap with previously published or simultaneously submitted papers from any of the authors. Failure to point out and explain overlap will be grounds for rejection. Simultaneous submission of the same paper to another venue with proceedings or a journal is not allowed and will be grounds for automatic rejection. Contact the program committee chairs if there are questions about this policy.

Submitted papers may include up to 15 pages of text and up to 5 pages for references and appendices, totaling no more than 20 pages. Papers must be A4 size, double column and reasonable margins. The text must be in Times font, 10-point or larger, with 11-point or larger line spacing. Authors are encouraged to use the IEEE conference proceedings templates (which can be found here).

Publication and Presentation

Authors are responsible for obtaining appropriate publication clearances. One of the authors of the accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference. Submissions received after the submission deadline or failing to conform to the submission guidelines risk rejection without review.
