2021 IEEE International Conference on Cyber Security and Resilience (IEEE CSR 2021)
Rhodes, Greece | July 26-28, 2021

https://www.ieee-csr.org/ 
===================================================================================


The IEEE International Conference on Cyber Security and Resilience (IEEE CSR) is an annual event sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC) Society. It will host workshops specializing the conference's areas (regular workshops) or focusing on high-quality applied research and innovation results that are obtained from projects (project workshops).


WORKSHOPS' FORMAT
-----------------
Regular workshops should focus on a specific scientific subject in the scope of IEEE CSR 2021 and specialize to complement the main conference areas. Each regular workshop will be coordinated by an Organizing Committee composed of, at least, two researchers in the field, preferably from institutions in different countries. The workshop organizers will have to create an international Program Committee, with recognized researchers in the workshop’s areas.

Project workshops are intended to promote the dissemination and facilitate future exploitation of international (like EU/H2020, ESF, NSF) and national projects in cyber-security and resilience that were funded in a competitive manner; both preliminary (for ongoing) and final (for finished) project results are sought. The workshop should be coordinated by an organizing committee of at least two researchers / principal investigators preferably from different projects.


WORKSHOPS' ORGANIZATION
-----------------------
The Organizing Committee of each workshop will be responsible for:

› Producing, based on IEEE CSR template, and distributing the workshop’s call for papers (CFP);
› Coordinating the review and selection of the papers submitted to the workshop, as workshop chairs (on the paper management platform to be used by the conference);
› Delivering the final versions of the papers accepted for the workshop in accordance with the guidelines and deadlines defined by the IEEE CSR 2021 organizers;
› Coordinating and chairing the workshop sessions at the conference.

IEEE CSR organizers reserve the right to cancel a workshop if deadlines are missed or the number of registered attendees is too low to support the costs associated with the workshop; at least 10 submitted and 5 accepted papers are expected by each workshop that is held under IEEE CSR.


IMPORTANT DATES
---------------
Workshop papers' deadline: April 19, 2021
Workshop authors' notification: May 3, 2021
Camera-ready submission: May 10, 2021
Early registration deadline: May 31, 2021

Workshop proposals should contain the following information:

› Workshop's acronym and full title;
