eCrime 2022

The Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (APWG eCrime) examines the economic foundations, behavioral elements, and other keystone aspects that animate and fuel the burgeoning global, multi-billion-dollar cybercrime plexus at its 17th annual symposium on Nov 30-Dec 2.

The symposium is currently scheduled as a virtual event held online – though APWG reserves the possibility of a live event or hybrid program with improving conditions regarding CV19 infection rates and mutations.

The selected peer-reviewed papers will be included in the conference’s presentations along with numerous panels and talks from other correspondent researchers selected from industrial and academic research centers affiliated with the APWG.

Instructions for Authors

The APWG Symposium on Electronic Crime Research has adopted the IEEE publication format. Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, formatted using the IEEE conference template, found here:

Submissions should be anonymised, excluding author names, affiliations and acknowledgments. Authors’ own work should be referred to in the third person. Submissions 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.

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.

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 (we note online presentations will be possible this year).
