2022 CyCon registration is open!

Registration for the 14th International Conference on Cyber Conflict, CyCon 2022, is open. The CCDCOE’s annual flagship event will be back on site in Tallinn, Estonia, from 31 May to 3 June 2022.

The NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence is pleased to inform that registration has opened for its annual conference. After two years of virtual events, CyCon is back as an in-person conference, bringing together representatives of the government, military, academia and industry to discuss technical, legal and policy aspects of cyber security and defence.

The conference’s central theme for 2022 is Keep Moving! Understood both literally and figuratively, it invites discussions about cyber security in transportation and of supply chain, autonomous technologies and automation, but also encourages to think about ways how to coordinate our joint response to the challenges brought by new technologies and how to avoid being paralyzed by the next global crisis to come.

The event will be traditionally opened by the President of Estonia. Keynote speakers include Gen. Paul M. Nakasone, commander of the US Cyber Command, Johanna Weaver, director of the Tech Policy Design Centre at Australian National University and Australia’s former representative at UN cyber norms fora, infosec expert Joanna Rutkowska or NATO ASG for Emerging Security Challenges David van Weel.

The topics span from maritime cybersecurity to deterrence mechanisms for cyberspace, from automated malware analysis to NATO and EU strategic outlook and much more. Developments in respect of CCDCOE’s other flagships of Locked Shields and Tallinn Manual will not go unnoticed of course.

The three day multi track conference will include presentations based on a public call for papers that will be published in the conference proceedings, an IEEE publication.

We look forward to seeing you in Tallinn!
