Paper Submission Guidelines

To be considered for presentation at the 27th Colloquium, please submit an original, unpublished paper in the field of Cybersecurity Education by August 15, 2023. Parallel submissions are not accepted, but articles on pre-press or personal sites are not excluded.

Proceedings will be published online and selected papers will also be published in our annual Journal. Papers that have been presented at the 27th Colloquium will also be considered for further development and publication.

Papers should present a well-formed and capably written idea, which advances the field of cybersecurity, and which is adequately contextualized and sufficiently supported by the literature. The implications for general application should be clear as well as their advantage and importance to the at-large purposes of the field. Conclusions should be supported by analytic means, either empirical or subjectively derived through commonly accepted methods. Graphic, or tabular support is encouraged.

Generative AI and other automated methods for producing papers and research should be disclosed in the paper itself as part of the initial submission for peer review, though applications and processes will not be granted authorship.
