CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS
APWG eCrime 2024: Taking Back Cyberspace from the Cybercrime Plexus
APWG eCrime 2024 contemplates the dawn of its third decade at the cybercrime frontier by delineating the challenges that await the interveners, investigators, policy makers and stakeholders from private and public sectors attempting to arrest — and reverse — the pandemic spread of cybercrime on our public and private internetworks and the World Wide Web.
The APWG Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (APWG eCrime) therefore is issuing its Call for Papers to announce its 19th annual edition of its peer-reviewed publishing conference – and to celebrate the beginning of its third decade combating cybercrime. APWG eCrime 2024 will be a three-day event hosted in Boston by the directors of the APWG on September 24 to 26, 2024. eCrime conference venue will be posted soon in this space.
APWG eCrime 2024 combines a peer-reviewed conference with general sessions open to industry, government, law enforcement and multilateral organizations, featuring keynote presentations from global thought-leaders, as well as technical and practical operationally focused sessions, and interactive panels. The objective of eCrime is to foster practical collaboration and the exchange of catalytic ideas by academic researchers, industry security practitioners, and law enforcement professionals in the global struggle against cybercrime.
