The Silicon Valley Cybersecurity Conference (SVCC) is an annual international conference in cybersecurity held at the heart of Silicon Valley, which is supported by the Silicon Valley Cybersecurity Institute (SVCSI). SVCC focuses on research in dependability, reliability, and security to address cyber-attacks, vulnerabilities, faults, and errors in networks and systems. This conference is a forum to present research in robustness and resilience in a wide spectrum of computing systems and networks. All aspects of the research and practice of applied security are within the scope of this conference. Relevant topics include innovative system design, protocols, and algorithms for detecting, preventing, mitigating, and responding to malicious threats in dependable and secure systems and networks including experimentation and assessment. The topics of interest are the security of hardware, software, networks, clouds, cyber-physical systems, socio-technical systems, blockchain, and healthcare.

Paper Submission

The authors need to submit their original, unpublished papers along with an abstract of about 200 words to EasyChair. Submitted papers may not be accepted or under review elsewhere. Submissions should be at least four (6) pages long but not exceed eight (8) pages, in the conference format (double-blind reviewing), should not use smaller than 10pt font size, and must be consistent with the IEEE conference format provided in the IEEE website Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. SVCC 2023 uses a double-blind review policy. Authors are required to remove their names, affiliation(s), and other identifying information from the header of the manuscript. This also includes meta-data in the submitted document as well as acknowledgment sections. To permit a blind review, do not include the name(s) or affiliation(s) of the author(s) on the manuscript and abstract. Papers that do not meet these anonymization requirements may be rejected without further review. 

Please see the detailed information on the conference website here.

Call for Special Sessions

Silicon Valley Cybersecurity Conference (SVCC 2021) is soliciting abstract papers for special sessions from both academia and industry. In conjunction with the regular SVCC conference program, the aim of special sessions is to provide specialized forums for the discussion of complementary, novel, or timely perspectives in cybersecurity that are of general interest to the audience of IEEE SVCC. Submissions should be at least one (1) page long but not exceed two (2) pages, in conference format. Please check the conference website.

Abstract Submission Due for Special Session: February 27, 2023, at Midnight (PST)

Call For Work in Progress (WIP)

We invite researchers to submit up to two-page papers related to cybersecurity topics with a maximum of 100-word abstract in English by using the IEEE Conference template. Ongoing research projects can be presented at SVCC under the Work in Progress (WIP) category. This provides a unique opportunity for authors to receive early feedback on current work and preliminary results. Please check the conference website.

Poster Submission Deadline: February 27, 2023, at Midnight (PST)

CyberWarrior (Cybersecurity Competition for all)

SVCSI hosts a Hackathon (called CyberWarrior) and this year’s SVCC cybersecurity challenge is system hacking and forensics questions. Please check the conference website.

Registration Deadline: April 23, 2023, at Midnight (PST)
