The 5th International Conference on Science of Cyber Security
Melbourne, Australia, 11-14 July 2023
Call for Papers
The 5th International Conference on Science of Cyber Security (SciSec 2023) will be held 11-14 July, 2023 in Melbourne, Australia. The conference is organized by the RMIT University.
SciSec was initiated in 2018 and aims to catalyze the research collaborations between the relevant communities and disciplines that can work together to deepen our understanding of, and build a firm foundation for, the emerging Science of Cyber Security. Publications in this venue would distinguish themselves from others by taking or thinking from a holistic perspective about cybersecurity, rather than a building-block perspective.
The program committee plans to select and award a Best Paper and a Best Student Paper. The post-conference proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, indexed by EI. Accepted posters will be invited to submit full version papers to International Journal of Digital Crime and Forensics (IJDCF, indexed by ESCI and EI) via the IGI Global system, which requires new template of materials. And SciSec is on the list of international conferences recommended by Institute of Information Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IIE_C).
The conference solicits high-quality, original research papers that can justifiably help achieve the ultimate Science of Cyber Security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Cybersecurity Metrics and Their Measurements
First-principle Cybersecurity Modeling and Analysis
Cybersecurity Data Analytics
Quantitative Risk Management for Cybersecurity
Big Data for Cybersecurity
Artificial Intelligence for Cybersecurity
Machine Learning for Cybersecurity
Economics Approaches for Cybersecurity
Social Sciences Approaches for Cybersecurity
Statistical Physics Approaches for Cybersecurity
Complexity Sciences Approaches for Cybersecurity
Statistics Approaches for Cybersecurity
Human Factors for Cybersecurity
Biology-inspired Approaches for Cybersecurity
Instructions for Authors
Authors are invited to submit original papers not previously published nor submitted in parallel for publication to any other conference, workshop or journal. All submitted papers must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references.
Submissions should be written in English and in the PDF format. The length limit is 18 pages (everything included). Authors should use Springer’s template, which is available at
