CSNet 2023 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE & IEEE Communications Society
All accepted and presented papers will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Authors of the best accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a fast-tracked, special issue of Wiley’s International Journal of Network Management (IJNM) and the Annals of Telecommunications (Springer, ISI-indexed).

After the first successful edition of CSNet 2017 in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the second edition CSNet 2018 in Paris (France), the third edition CSNet 2019 in Quito (Ecuador), CSNet 2020 in Lausanne (Switzerland) (Online), CSNet 2021 in Abu Dhabi (UAE) (Hybrid), CSNet 2022 in Brazil, the seventh edition of Cyber Security in Networking (CSNet) conference will be held in Montreal (Canada) next October 16 – 18, 2023.

We are seeking full papers, short papers, and demos papers in cyber security for the networking domain.

The driving theme at CSNet 2023 is “the resilient networked systems and services”.

The technological disruption is generating an impact on society and leading to a new industrial revolution. This social and industrial change presents new technological environments constituted by ubiquitous systems and large amounts of information, which requires a change in the way how cyber security is designed and developed. The use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, and data analytics provides additional tools for security analysts to face new forms of cybersecurity threats.

In today’s highly connected world, networks and systems are expected to support a wide range of critical and vital services. Resiliency of such services, which includes cyber security, adaptability, and autonomy, will be a key driving factor for future networked systems.

Topics of interest for the CSNet 2023 conference include, but are not limited to:

  • AI Technologies Applied to Cyber Security
  • Attacks on Virtualized Systems
