2019 NICE Conference & Expo
November 18 - 20, 2019
Sheraton Grand Phoenix | Phoenix, AZ

The 2019 NICE Conference and Expo program committee is seeking timely, topical, and thought-provoking presentations in line with the conference theme, "Reimagining the Future of the Cybersecurity Workforce: Adapting to a Changing Landscape".

We encourage proposals from a diverse array of organizations and individuals with different perspectives, including employers and practitioners from the public and private sectors, non-profits, international bodies, educators at K-12 schools and institutions of higher education, research centers, and training and certification providers.  

Topics should attempt to align with the goals and objectives of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Strategic Plan and, where appropriate, consider uses of the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework. Submissions should incorporate themes around workforce diversity, equity, and inclusion as they apply to the four tracks and the work presented. Proposals will be evaluated and selected based on the quality of the written proposal, variety of topics and presenters, and alignment with the conference theme and tracks.

This year’s featured tracks are:

  1. Partnering for a Stronger Cybersecurity Community
  2. Connecting Theory and Practice
  3. The Impacts of Future Technologies on the Cybersecurity Workforce
  4. Expanding Skill Development through Lifelong Learning
