Symposium on Electronic Crime Research
Call for Research Papers
The twelth Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (eCrime) 2017 will be held between April 25 - 27, 2017 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
eCrime 2017 consists of 3 days of keynote presentations, technical and practical sessions, and interactive panels. This will allow for the academic researchers, security practitioners, and law enforcement to discuss and exchange ideas, experiences and lessons learnt in all aspects of electronic crime and ways to combat it.
New to this conference is the introduction of two publication tracks to help attract research covering applied, industrial cybercrime research as well as applied and/or theoretical cybercrime academic research. To further strengthen the confidence in each track, there have been two managing chairs and committees appointed for reviewing and selecting papers for each track of the cybercrime conference.
The conference offers travel grants to students who are having issues finding the funding to attend the conference. Note that there is a set final date for requesting the stipend so please get your requests in as soon as possible after hearing back about your paper’s acceptance. eCrime 2017 also has a best paper and runner-up award that is accompanied by a cash reward for the top papers submitted to the academic track only.

Instructions for Authors
eCrime has adopted the IEEE publication format. Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, formatted using the the IEEE conference template, found here: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. Submissions should include author names, affiliations and acknowledgments. They should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, not counting the bibliography and appendices. Papers should begin with a title, abstract, and an introduction that clearly summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Papers should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation, relevance to practical applications, and a clear comparison with related work. Committee members are not required to read appendices, and papers should be intelligible without them. Submitted papers risk being rejected without consideration of their merits if they do not follow all the above guidelines. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.
Authors will be asked to indicate whether their submissions should be considered for the best student paper award; any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. A limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves are given priority to receive such assistance. Requests for stipends should be addressed to the general chair after March 3rd.
