Call for Papers


June 8-9, 2015, London, UK


The International Conference on Cyber Situational Awareness, Data Analytics and Assessment (CyberSA 2015) is an international referred conference dedicated to the advancement of the principles, methods and applications of situational awareness on Cyber Systems, Business Information Systems (BIS), Computer Network Defence (CND), Computer Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoTs).


The aim of the CyberSA 2015 is to encourage participation and promotion of collaborative scientific, industrial and academic inter-workings among individual researchers, practitioners, members of existing associations, academia, standardisation bodies, and including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different cultures.


CyberSA 2015 invites researchers and industry practitioners to submit papers that encompass principles, analysis, design, methods and applications. All submitted papers are independently peer-reviewed.


Conference proceedings will be published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and submitted for bibliographic indexing and listing by the following: IEEE Computer Society Digital Library, IEEE Xplore Digital Library, DBLP Computer Science, Scopus, CiteSeerX, Computer Science Index, EI Compendex, Academic Search Complete, CiteULike, Google Scholar & Microsoft Academic Search.



CyberSA 2015 is co-located with other conferences as part of CyberScience 2015.


·  Posters will be presented during the conference.

·  Industry track is available for discussing and publishing pilot and proof of concepts.

·  Work in Progress track is available for preliminary work.

·  Research Ideas track is available for ideas in early stages assessment.

·  PhD Seminar track is available for discussing and publishing early PhD thesis research.


Note: Due to requests from potential authors, submission deadline has now been extended to 11th March 2015. All submissions must be submitted via the online submission system hosted by EasyChair Conference Portal!


All Industry track, Work in Progress track, Research Ideas track and PhD Seminar track will be published in the conference proceedings. Interested participants, please submit your proposal using the online submission system hosted by Easychair Conference Portal.


Full paper submission should be via Easychair Conference Portal.
