Reminder: CyCon 2017 Abstracts Deadline on October 3

The deadline for CyCon 2017 call for papers is October 3rd 2016. The 9th International Conference on Cyber Conflict will take place in Tallinn, Estonia 30 May-2 June 2017.

CyCon 2017 will focus on the ‘core’ aspects of cyber security. The Call for Papers invites submissions that will increase understanding of the most critical cyber security issues in our digitally connected world. CyCon 2017 is open to submissions addressing topics from technical, legal, policy, strategy and military perspectives.

Digitalization has transformed, often disrupted, our way of life, bringing innumerable social and economic benefits while technological dependencies have altered security risks. No future conflict is likely to be fought without a cyber element. However, establishing effective defensive measures is difficult. The cross-border and ever-expanding nature of digital technologies complicates our understanding of critical cyber dependencies, threats and vulnerabilities.

Authors are asked to submit an abstract of the planned paper, which should describe the topic and set out the main aspects and structure of the study (300–500 words). After a preliminary review and the acceptance of the abstract, the respective authors will be requested to submit original and unpublished papers meeting high academic research standards. Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind peer review.

Submission details, author guidance, copyright transfer form and other practical information will be available on our website at The abstracts and manuscripts must be uploaded electronically to after creating an account.

Authors of papers accepted for publishing in the conference proceedings are requested to make a corresponding presentation at the conference. Speakers will be offered travel (booked by NATO CCD COE) and accommodation for the duration of the conference, as well as social events in Tallinn.
