Call for papers

International Conference on Cyber Incident Response, Coordination, Containment & Control (Cyber Incident 2021) is an international refereed conference dedicated to the advancement of Cyber Incident Response, Coordination, Containment and Control.

The aim of the Cyber Incident 2021 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, including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different cultures.

Cyber Incident 2021 invites researchers and industry practitioners to submit papers that encompass principles, analysis, design, methods and applications. All submitted papers are independently peer-reviewed. The conference is open to the public, so you can attend the event without presenting a paper. Registration for both authors and attendees (without presenting a paper) opens in March 2021. You are welcome!

The conference proceedings will be submitted for consideration for publishing and listing on the following bibliographic indexes:

  • IEEE Computer Society Digital Library
  • IEEE Xplore Digital Library
  • DBLP Computer Science, and
  • Others – e.g. Scopus, CiteSeerX, Computer Science Index, EI Compendex, Academic Search Complete, CiteULike, Google Scholar & Microsoft Academic Search.


Cyber Incident 2021 is a co-located conference alongside Social Media 2021, Cyber Security 2021 and Cyber SA 2021 as part of Cyber Science 2021.


Posters will be presented virtually at the conference.


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

Work in Progress

Research Ideas

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

PhD Seminar
