Submissions due April 24, 2023

research showcase_page topper - 1

CCI wants to highlight the impressive work that our network of researchers have done by showcasing selected peer-reviewed papers that have been published or accepted for publication in the past two years.

Send your published or accepted papers, and we’ll feature a curated collection of significant, influential research in our showcase, which will increase the readership and impact of your work.

Please keep in mind that the 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 will prioritize papers that have benefited from CCI programs and credit CCI.

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.

Papers will be featured on our website, in social media posts, in the CCI annual report, and other CCI publications.

We’ll also work with your home university to spread the word about your research.
