Organized by the WiCyS organization, the 7th National Women in Cybersecurity conference WiCyS 2020  will be held on March 12-14, 2020 at Denver (Aurora), CO.

Call for Scholarship Application, and Call for Participation (CFP) are open until October 19th , Saturday.

We have limited capacity of 1500 attendees. As always, we expect that 50% of the attendees will be students from 2 and 4 year institutions at all levels of education, 25% of expected attendees will be educators,  and 25% are industry professionals—again at various levels of their careers. We have limited capacity and therefore, the only way to guarantee registration with limited capacity is through scholarships, program participation, and sponsorship.

Students must apply for WiCyS scholarships to attend the conference. Faculty receiving grants will get guaranteed registration with subsidized registration fee which will include two nights of shared lodging at the conference hotel. There will be some travel scholarships (up to $500) available to WiCyS scholarship recipients.

Deadline for WiCyS scholarship application and CFP  is October 19th , Saturday. With your participation, we hope to orchestrate a program that will be beneficial to students, educators, researchers and professionals.

The WiCyS conference will offer:

• Technical presentations
• Technical workshops
• Student Poster competitions (winners receive travel grants)
• Birds-of Feather discussions
• Career Village with mentoring and networking session
• Panel discussions
• Lightning talks
• Career and graduate school fair (expecting 100+ organizations)

• Dedicated meet ups for 

  • SFS Scholars
  • WiCyS Students chapters
  • WiCyS affiliates
  • Faculty with funding agency leaders

Accepted program participation guarantees one complimentary registration (with lodging in some cases).
