We're going virtual! Please join us for the annual CAE in Cybersecurity (CAE-C) Symposium in November 19-20, 2020!  As we move virtual, there are likely to be changes to the program. Please check all email correspondence for updates. 

The CAE in Cybersecurity Symposium provides community members and applicants the opportunity to network, receive community updates, and present their research to the community.  The symposium is open to all existing Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE), Centers of Academic Excellence in Research (CAE-R), and Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations (CAE-CO), as well as government representatives and invitees. Registration is also open to institutions that have applied for CAE-C designation or are in the process of applying. 

Attending the event is free, but registration is required in advance to gain access to the conference. The CAE-C Program Office approves each registration. Therefore, to make sure you are authorized to attend, register by November 12th, 2020.

The CAE in Cybersecurity (CAE-C) Community invited faculty and staff from CAE-C designated institutions to participate as members of the 2020 CAE in Cybersecurity Symposium planning committee.  After an overwhelming response from the community, the CAE-C Community selected the program planning committees for each track. 

The Symposium program agenda is for reference and subject to change. All times are Eastern time.


We are hosting several pre-conference webinars leading up to the CAE Symposium on November 19th and 20th. These events will focus on the initiatives made possible by Congressional funding add-ons provided in FY2020. This year, participating schools were asked to form coalitions and partnerships around specific initiative topics, and we want to share their exciting work with the rest of the Community. We will also be using these workshops to discuss the re-designation process, and new application tool.

Please note, each webinar has a unique registration and Zoom link. The main conference has a separate registration link, please register for the main conference here

We look forward to your participation throughout the pre-conference webinars and during the main symposium.
