The deadline for submission is 28th February 2024.
Cyber Science 2024 will be an in-person only event.
The International Conference on Cybersecurity, Situational Awareness and Social Media (Cyber Science 2024) is a multidisciplinary conference. It brings academics, researchers, practitioners and participants together to share and discuss new and emerging ideas, concepts and research outcomes. The conference focuses in advancing the principles, methods and applications of cybersecurity, situational awareness and social media.
Cyber Science 2024 invites participants to submit original papers that encompass principles, concepts, analysis, design, methods and applications of cybersecurity, situational awareness and social media.
All submitted papers will be independently peer-reviewed, and accepted papers must be registered and presented at the conference in order to be included in the conference proceedings.
Cyber Science is the flagship conference of the Centre for Multidisciplinary Research, Innovation and Collaboration (C-MRiC) focusing on pioneering research and innovation in Cyber Situational Awareness, Social Media, Cyber Security and Cyber Incident Response.
Cyber Science aims to encourage participation and promotion of collaborative scientific, industrial and academic inter-workings among individual researchers, practitioners, members of existing associations, academia, standardization bodies, and including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different culture.
Cyber Science 2024 will be published by Springer.
The Cyber Science 2024 proceedings will be published in the Springer Proceedings in Complexity book series

Lecturer in Cyber Security
Dr Uchenna Daniel Ani is a Computer Scientist and Cyber Security Expert. He is a lecturer and Programme lead for the MSc. Cyber Security at the School of Computer Science and Mathematics, Keele University, UK. Dr Ani holds a Ph.D. in Industrial Control System Cybersecurity, an MSc. in Computer Security and Forensics, and a B.Sc.(Hons) in Computer Science. Dr Ani is involved in leading and guiding the direction on some of IoT-enabled critical infrastructure security projects in the PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity, a consortium of 23 UK universities. Dr Ani’s work is deeply ingrained in multidisciplinary cybersecurity research, exploring and understanding how technical cybersecurity solutions interact with social elements including humans, standards, and policy attributes to create safe, secure, practicable, and future-proof cyber security and resilient outcomes.
His research interests are around exploring how socio-technical security lenses – analysis, modelling, and simulation – can be engaged simultaneously to address emerging cybersecurity challenges in interconnected critical Infrastructure systems/organisations. Dr Ani’s research interests also include; ICS/IoT/IIoT Cybersecurity and resilience, Security Modelling and Simulations, Security Metrics, Human-factor Security, Security Risk (threat, vulnerability and impact) Analysis, Cybersecurity Analytics, Digital Forensics and Evidence Integrity, Network Quality of Service, Digital Transition and Circular economy.
