Call For Papers

CCERP seeks to provide academics, researchers, and practitioners with an opportunity to share their perspectives with others interested in the various aspects of Information Security with a focus on the use of the material for curriculum development. Papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of information security are solicited for submission to the conference.

The primary focus is on high-quality, original, unpublished research, case studies, and implementation experiences. Papers should have practical relevance to the design, development, implementation, and best-practices in information security or for best-practices in the design, implementation, and management of information security or digital forensics.

Theoretical papers must make convincing argument for the practical significance of the results. Theory must be justified by supporting literature and compelling examples illustrating its application. The primary criterion for appropriateness is demonstrated practical relevance. The conference will include three tracks: pedagogy, practice, and student. Note that work in progress papers can be accepted if substantial progress has already been made and completion is expected by the conference date.

In order to be considered a student paper, and thus eligible for the best student paper award, the paper must be authored exclusively by students. Any paper submitted as a student paper with a non-student co-author will be reclassified as either pedagogy or practice and is eligible for the best paper award, but not the best student paper award.

Note: Work in Progresses can be accepted if substantial progress and expected completion by conference date is demonstrated.

To submit a paper, go to the Conference site, register as an author and upload. Additional details provided by system.

Authors may submit up to 3 papers; however no more than 2 papers from any one author will be accepted for publication.

“The (...) conference has been a help to both myself and my students. One of my students interested in pursuing a PhD program presented a joint paper at your conference. He greatly appreciated the opportunity and experience in writing and presenting at a conference. The conference has been a useful venue for disseminating my research as well as a source of teaching and research ideas.”
