2024: CCI Research Showcase Call for Papers

Submission deadline: May 31, 2024

2024 Research Showcase: Call for Published Papers

We want to highlight the impressive work being done by the CCI research community to advance cybersecurity research.

We’re asking for submissions of peer-reviewed research papers that have been accepted for publication or published in 2023 or 2024.

We'll feature the selected papers on our website, in social media posts, in the CCI annual report, and other CCI publications to help increase the number of citations for each paper. We’ll also work with your home university to spread the word about your research.

Submissions from under-represented groups are particularly welcome, as are submissions from researchers who have not previously engaged with CCI. Women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to submit their work.


  • The paper is based on CCI-funded research.
  • CCI must be credited/acknowledged in the published paper. 
  • The research must focus on cybersecurity.
  • The paper must be peer-reviewed and published during 2023 or 2024 or scheduled to be published by June 30, 2024.
  • Explain how the paper has significantly advanced the cybersecurity field
  • Include a link to the full PDF, which  can be hosted on the author's website, their institution's repository, or any venue that supports open publication.

The published paper must be focused on cybersecurity. Papers that only focus on, for example, 5G or artificial intelligence, but not the cybersecurity aspect of those technologies, will not be considered. We prioritize papers that have benefited from CCI programs and credit CCI. Submissions from under-represented groups are particularly welcome. 

For more information about the 2023 call, please visit the 2023 Research Showcase.

Include with your submission: 

  • Paper title
  • Author(s)
  • Venue (name of publication, magazine, conference)
  • Date of publication or acceptance of publication
  • Link to full PDF of the paper
  • Impact: Explain how the paper has significantly advanced the cybersecurity field and why it should be considered for the CCI Research Showcase.


Please email your submission as a PDF or Word Document via email to no later than Friday, May 31, 2024, by 5 p.m. ET, with the subject line reading: LastName_research-showcase2024.
