Research papers are being sought for a first-of-its-kind conference discussing defending cyber attacks.

The papers being sought must be focused on science and technology.

To be held in Brisbane in March, the Cyber Defence Next Generation (CDNG) Technology and Science Conference will bring together scientists and researchers to present cutting-edge innovations to tackle cyber crime.

The conference will address systems security, cyber AI and autonomy, cryptography, secure software engineering, autonomous decision-making, software systems and database security.

It is a collaboration between CSIRO, the Department for Science and Technology (DST), Data61 and universities.

“Design of secure, trustworthy and resilient systems remains a continual challenge given an ever-increasing attack surface,” the conference guidelines say.

“We seek submissions which focus on new research into design, modelling and evaluation of secure systems that can detect attacks, work resiliently under attacks, [and] take counter-measures to prevent or ameliorate potential attacks.”

Papers can be submitted until January 7 and the full program will be announced on February 11. The conference will be held at Customs House in Brisbane on March 24 and 25.
