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.

The conference proceedings will be submitted for consideration for publishing in reputable bibliographic indexes e.g., Springer, DBLP etc.

As a yearly conference, the intention is to hold the conference at various locations. The first three Cyber Science events were held in London, followed by Glasgow, Scotland, then the University of Oxford, UK. The 2020 and 2021 editions of the conference were both held at the Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland. 2022 conference was held at the Cardiff Metropolitan University, Cardiff, Wales. In 2023, it was held in Copenhagen (the world’s city of Architecture), Aalborg University, Denmark.

Cyber Science 2024 will be held at Edinburgh Napier UniversityScotland, on 27-28 June 2024.

The conference will be in-person only,  featuring notable keynote speakers from industry, academia, and government at the 2-day event. These experts will discuss topical and emerging topics ranging from Multidisciplinary and Multidimensional Cybersecurity, Ethical and Responsible use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cyber Insurance, Cyber Situational Awareness, Resilience and Government Security to Blockchain Regulation & Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).

In addition, the 2-day event will hold multiple plenary sessions to foster social interaction and engagement from participants. There will be group photos, social evening-drinks and dinner.

Scotland is historic and beautiful place with vast cultural heritage. I encourage you to take this opportunity to submit your work, register, attend, network and learn about the latest cyber research and innovative topics.

We look forward to meeting you in Scotland in person.
