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.  This year, the program included all three designation tracks: CAE-CDE, CAE-CO, and CAE-R. After an overwhelming response from the community, the CAE-C Community selected the program planning committees for each track. 

The CAE in Cybersecurity Community will work with the program committees to provide an agenda by October 1, 2020. In the meantime, please see the tentative agenda to make your arrangements. Please note, that the symposium program agenda is currently under review. We anticipate splitting the program up over several days. 


This year, the CAE in Cybersecurity Symposium contains three program tracks: CAE-CDE, CAE-R, and CAE-CO. Each program committee is providing opportunities for CAE-C faculty and staff to submit proposals to participate in track events. Please review the following call for proposals for each track carefully. Schools with multiple CAE-C designations are welcome to submit a proposal for more than one track. 

The deadline to submit a proposal for the CAE-CDE, CAE-R, and CAE-CO track is August 31, 2020, at 11:59 pm. 

This year, the CAE in Cybersecurity Symposium registration form enables you to submit your registration and your proposal at the same time! You may also submit your registration and proposal submission separately. Please review the proposal information BEFORE submitting your registration. 

***Note: You are registering to receive approval to attend the 2020 CAE in Cybersecurity Symposium. Once you are approved, you will be sent a registration link in August 2020 for our virtual platform. Only approved registrants will receive the virtual platform registration link.
