The National Cyber Summit is a multi-track cyber security event held annually with an expectation of over 2000 participants and more than 60 exhibitors. The event features tracks dedicated to technical, organizational, and research topics to address the entire cyber threat landscape. The NCS is held in Huntsville, AL. Huntsville is home to the Army’s Redstone Arsenal and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. Army Material Command (AMC) is headquartered at Redstone Army Arsenal as well as the Army Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center, Missile Defense Agency, Army Space & Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command, PEO Aviation and various other government organizations having a strong interest in cybersecurity. Huntsville is also home to the second largest research park in the nation where approximately 400 companies conduct business. This Cyber Security Summit offers an ideal venue for networking with government, industry, and Department of Defense attendees.

Call for Papers - Research Track

This is a call for “original” papers documenting cybersecurity research. Unpublished papers of up to 16 pages (in Springer’s Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing format) are solicited.

The National Cyber Summit Research Track solicits research papers in two general streams: cybersecurity technology and cybersecurity education.


Cybersecurity technology papers should document research outcomes that enhance cybersecurity via contributions to at least one of the following general categories: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, or Recover.


Cybersecurity education papers should document research outcomes associated with modern approaches to teaching in the cybersecurity discipline and methods of attracting new populations into cybersecurity education and careers.
