HICSS Symposium: January 7, 2020


This Symposium enables practitioners and academics to present emerging cybersecurity big data research and challenges in domains such as data collection and processing, data analytics, data handling, machine learning, deep learning, and visualization; as well as to present and discuss potential cybersecurity big data research topics and methodologies of interest to the cybersecurity community.

Machine Learning and Analytics cover all forms that leverage or require Big Data for support, including defensive measures, potential threat identification applications, or deep learning opportunities. They also include, but are not limited to, methodologies, techniques, and impacts of real-time processing for incident detection and/or prevention, data review for incident and anomaly detection, post incident response analytics, and IT audit related analytics. Data handling covers research and case studies into process and procedures. Visualization will look at all aspects of research related to visualizing the data, such as temporal, geographical, threat, actor, event based, and other data types. Topics related to data include areas such as logs, network traffic data (PCAP), system process data, system memory data, and even complete virtualized system snapshots.


The Symposium will include paper presentations and a panel discussion.


Papers should be emailed to AZSecure-HICSS@list.arizona.edu. Authors of accepted papers will present their work during the Symposium. Due to the limited time available, short papers will have 15 minutes to present and long papers 20 minutes. Because we are seeking the latest in current ongoing research, authors retain the copyright to their work, although they may cite it as a peer reviewed conference paper. We do ask permission to host accepted papers on the Symposia website.


Authors may submit long papers (up to 8 pages) or short papers (up to 4 pages) for presentation. Exceptions to page limits can be made on a case-by-case basis.

Submission should follow the IEEE double-column format: for information and instructions, see the IEEE publications page at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.... for information on formatting (link opens in new window).  Submission format is PDF.
