Submissions open for specialists to present during academic and industrial themed workshops at CyberSec&AI Connected 2020

Building on its award-winning 2019 conference, CyberSec&AI Connected 2020 (8th October) has expanded into cyberspace, as well as four cities across the world. Fully interactive for digital attendees, the event will see speakers and panels present from Prague, London, New York and San Francisco.

A key part of the day will be a series of workshops sessions where cybersecurity practitioners and researchers will be able to deep dive into the latest research, case studies, technology, challenges, and opportunities around AI and machine learning in cybersecurity and privacy. 

Call for presentations 

The Workshop Program Committee has opened up the call for presentations, enabling authors to submit their work for consideration for the CyberSec&AI Connected Workshops

“We are excited to help bring together researchers, experts and professionals from around the world for these workshops” said Petr Somol, AI Research Director at Avast. “Our 2019 conference was a success because we helped provide a forum for people to exchange ideas and informally discuss projects and concepts they were working on. 

“This year we want to go even further with practical workshops that allow people to go into deeper detail and offer practical presentations of new ideas and technologies at the heart of tomorrow’s AI and cybersecurity.”

“Some of the most important breakthroughs in both AI and security have come from the collaboration between academia and industry,” says Fabrizio Biondi, AI Research Manager at Avast. “This is why it is so crucial to bring both communities together and allow them to cross-pollinate ideas and find new ways to cooperate. This year’s online format increases the reach of these workshops, allowing us to really bring the wider community together.”

Details for applicants

Authors wishing to be part of our workshops are encouraged to submit an abstract for their presentations and tool demonstrations in any aspect of cybersecurity and privacy technology, with particular emphasis on AI-based real-word deployments. In addition, we also seek presentations and tool demonstrations on fundamental and applied research concerning the interplay of AI with cybersecurity and privacy

Potential authors have until the 30th June to submit an abstract for their presentation. Those successful in their application will be notified on or after 1st July, 2020. The final agenda for the workshops will be made public on the 15th July, 2020.
