CSNet 2024 Call For Papers

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

The driving theme at CSNet 2024 is “AI for Cybersecurity”, focusing on its applications in emerging networks and systems. This encompasses addressing the Challenges and Opportunities of AI to reinforce security and privacy in Next-Generation Technologies. 

The technological disruption is impacting 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 cybersecurity is applied. Using big data, data science, and AI/machine learning/deep learning models, strengthens the cognitive skills of security analysts to face new forms of cybersecurity attacks. This new trend, called cognitive security, poses new challenges for researchers and companies to seek proactive security proposals according to this technological change. 

AI, particularly machine learning (ML), is increasingly indispensable in the realm of cybersecurity for emerging networks and applications. With the emergence of new use cases such as threat detection, autonomous systems, and technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), drones, and robotics, the vision of AI-driven cybersecurity is becoming more defined. Advanced deep learning techniques including transfer learning, federated learning, and large language models (LLM) play a pivotal role in fortifying cybersecurity measures, optimizing threat responses, and enhancing overall network security. Moreover, these methods might facilitate the development of adaptive and resilient security frameworks for operators.

CSNET 2024 aims to cover a broad spectrum of state-of-the-art and emerging topics related to AI-driven cybersecurity for emerging systems, networks, and applications. Anticipated to draw a significant number of high-quality submissions, the conference will foster cutting-edge research discussions (full/short papers) among numerous pioneering academic researchers/scientists and industrial engineers/leaders from around the world in the field of AI for cybersecurity.

The CSNET 2024 program will include several symposia, workshops, invited presentations, special sessions, and pioneering keynote speakers. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit original technical papers of up to 6 pages in length using the corresponding EDAS link.

During this conference, experts from academia and various industry sectors will explore the opportunities afforded by the latest AI techniques in cybersecurity. Additionally, they will discuss the challenges associated with integrating AI into the design and operation of next-generation networks, applications, drones, and robotics, thereby ensuring robust and comprehensive protection against evolving cyber threats.
