The 6th National Women in Cybersecurity conference  will be held on March 29-30, 2019 at Pittsburgh, PA.

This event is jointly organized by WiCyS organization and The Carnegie Mellon University.

Call for Scholarship Application, and Call for Participation are NOW open.

We have limited capacity of 1200 attendees. As always, we expect that 50% of the attendees will be students from 2 and 4 year institutions at all levels of education, 25% of expected attendees will be educators,  and 25% are industry professionals—again at various levels of their careers.

Students must apply for WiCyS scholarships to attend the conference. Faculty receiving grants will get guaranteed registration with subsidized registration fee which will include two nights of shared lodging at the conference hotel. There will be some travel scholarships (up to $500) available to WiCyS scholarship recipients.

Deadline for WiCyS scholarship application is November 1st.  Acceptance notification is December 1.

The WiCyS conference will offer:
