Greetings CAE in Cybersecurity Community! This year the annual CAE in Cybersecurity Symposium will take place on November 8-9, 2018 immediately following the NICE Conference. This event is designed to provide the CAE in Cybersecurity Community members and applicants the opportunity to network, receive community updates, and present their research to the community. We are seeking proposals from the community to facilitate fast-pitch sessions, special interest group sessions, and presentations (these will occur during the breakout sessions). A committee will select proposal submissions based on available spots.

The following are the acceptable topics for fastpitch, special interest group, and presentation sessions:
