4th CSng Workshop

The annual Cyber Security Workshop in the Netherlands (supported by 4TU.NIRICT, dcypher, and NWO) aims to contribute to a stronger and more connected cyber security research community in the Netherlands. Seize this excellent opportunity to share ideas, experiences, and information, within the diverse topics of cyber security. Both researchers and practitioners working within the field of cyber security are cordially invited to join.

The 4th edition of this workshop will be held in The Hague on October 17, 2018 at NWO offices, Laan van Nieuw Oost-Indië 300, Den Haag. Participation is free of charge.

We are delighted to have Dr. Jair Santanna giving a keynote speech: 'DDoSDB.org for mitigating DDoS attacks in the Dutch Society'.

As in the previous year, the program committee is soliciting abstracts describing work on cyber security. The workshop also encourages the submission of interdisciplinary work on cybersecurity from related fields, including but not limited to all fields of criminology, law, economics, and psychology. All PhD and MSc students are encouraged to submit a one-page abstract in pdf-format, including names of the authors, affiliations and e-mail addresses. Submission is done by sending an e-mail to: csngworkshop@gmail.com

Subscription to the event and program will be open soon and announced on this page.
