Cybercrime conference issues call for papers


The 2016 International Conference on CyberCrime and Computer Forensics (ICCCF) is coming to Simon Fraser University’s downtown campus on June 12-14, 2016 and organizer Barry Cartwright, senior lecturer in SFU’s School of Criminology, has issued a call for papers.

“We’re looking for topical scholarly papers from computing engineers, computer scientists, criminologists, sociologists, educators, and legal experts,” says Cartwright.

The conference, co-hosted by SFU in co-operation with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the Asia Pacific Association of Technology and Society (APATAS), is expected to attract hundreds of international cyber crime and security experts.

Keynote speakers include Benoit Dupont, scientific director of Smart Security Network, from the University of Montreal; Thomas Holt, an internationally recognized computer hacking and malware researcher from the University of Michigan; Susan Brenner, a professor of cyber law and technology at the University of Dayton, Ohio; and Gary Perkins, the executive director and chief information security officer for the B.C. government’s Information Security Branch.

The call for papers closes on Feb. 1, 2016. Qualified papers will be considered for indexing and publication in the IEEE’s Xplore Digital Library. The conference includes a poster session and several student panels where students are invited to present papers on “open” topics related to cybercrime and computer forensics.
