Call for Papers

The Worldwide Cybersecurity Summit is a unique event that convenes experts, stakeholders and decision-makers from industry, government and academia to advance international policy to promote the security, stability and safety of cyberspace. As with the first two, this 3rd Summit is sponsored by the EastWest Institute, in partnership with its technical co-sponsor, the IEEE.

Consistent with EWI's reputation as a "think-and-do tank," the Summit fosters problem solving and solution recommendations for difficult international and consequential policy gaps in cyberspace, i.e. the internationally-focused Agreements, Standards, Policies and Regulations (ASPR) gaps. Ultimately, the Summit's format tackles the issues of mistrust and the confidence building necessary for global cooperation. The Summit prefers papers focused on ASPR gaps rather than strictly technology focused papers.

Papers are sought for international policy-related aspects of cybersecurity, including:

> Worldwide governance, frameworks and protocols for the day-to-day behavior, in cyberspace, policing cyberspace and the conduct of cyber conflict.

> Worldwide strategies and mechanisms for the reliability and resilience of the supply chain, infrastructure and emerging capabilities (e.g., the mobile ecosystem).

> Worldwide response strategies and mechanisms to cyber crisis (e.g., international priority communications, and trusted information sharing).

> Worldwide issues, awareness and education (e.g., protecting youth, spam and the private public partnerships need to secure the global economy).


> Contents must be original work
> Length of 4-6 pages
> Format per IEEE conference style (see *below for templates and guidelines)
> Cover page should clearly indicate the complete postal and email addresses, as well as phone of the contact author
> Submissions must be made in PDF format here.


Rolling > Full Paper Submissions (Submit early to ensure timely notification)
7 September > Final Acceptance Notifications
24 September > Camera-ready Final Paper Submission Due
8 October > Ready-to-Print Posters Due

Submission of an abstract implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to present a complete and final version of the paper at the Summit in New Delhi. Authors agree to advance release of papers to selected media outlets. Authors of selected papers, will have the opportunity to present in either a poster or parallel track session, and have their papers published in IEEE XPlore, and EI Index, with the exception that EWI and IEEE reserve the right to exclude any paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Papers that are removed from IEEE Xplore will not be available through the EI Index.
