    Opens: 24/01/2017 09:00 AM

    Closes: 5/04/2017 12:00 PM

On behalf of the Program Committee, we invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the 5th International Conference on Cybercrime and Computer Forensics (ICCCF).

The theme of the 2017 conference is ‘Cybercrime Research, Policy and Practice: The Collaboration Imperative’.

The massive increase in technological developments in personal computing, smart phone and wireless devices in recent years has created significant challenges in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. This important conference will explore the expansion of technology-enabled crimes and how collaboration can inform technological, legal and policy responses internationally.

Abstracts can address any relevant questions within this broad theme and presenters should choose to present in one of two streams:

  • Research and policy
  • Practice and technology

Examples of research issues within these streams include:

a) Research and policy
Results of cybercrime research and discussion of related policy issues, including:

  • Personal information, privacy and identity misuse
  • Intellectual property regulation
  • Illegal content in cyberspace
  • Online dishonesty
  • Regulating the internet of things
  • Sentencing cyber criminals

b) Practice and technology
Practical issues and technology affecting cybercrime and its prevention and regulation, such as:

  • Computer and mobile forensics
  • Resource allocation within law enforcement
  • Cyber intelligence sharing
  • Data sharing across networks
  • Cloud security
  • Biometric authentication
  • Cyber crime prevention software
