The European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference – EICC 2020
aims at establishing a venue for the exchange of information on
cybersecurity and its many aspects between academics and practitioners
in Europe. EICC was formerly known as the Central European
Cybersecurity Conference – CECC and has been rebranded to underscore
the interdisciplinarity of the conference and broaden its reach. EICC
2020 encourages the dialogue between computer scientists and
researchers in all other fields related to cybersecurity, such as
behavioral sciences, sociology, criminology, investigations and law.
Interdisciplinary contributions are especially welcome.

EICC 2020 is organized by National Institute for Research in Digital
Science and Technology - Inria / CentraleSupélec and will be co-
with European Cyber Week 2020:
