Call for Papers


October 12-13, 2016, Oxford, UK


International Conference on Web Fraud Detection, Financial and Fraud Analysis (Fraud-Detect 2016) is an international referred conference dedicated to the advancement of Web Fraud Detection, Enterprise Fraud Management & Transactional Monitoring. We welcome new and innovative contributions that provide insight to theoretical underpinnings, foundational research, methods and practical implementation of web security, web fraud detection to online-based services, endpoint transactional monitoring and channel and session based authentication mechanisms.


The aim of the Fraud-Detect 2016 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.


Fraud-Detect 2016 invites researchers and industry practitioners to submit papers that encompass principles, analysis, design, methods and applications. All submitted papers will be independently peer-reviewed.


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



Fraud-Detect 2016 is co-located with other conferences part of Counter Fraud 2016.

  • 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.

All accepted submissions, including Industry track, Work in Progress track, Research Ideas track and PhD Seminar track will be published in the conference proceedings.


All submissions, including abstracts and full papers should be submitted via the Easychair Conference Site
