Call for Papers

This workshop will explore research at the intersection of cybersecurity and social/behavioral sciences. Many cybersecurity papers need some psychology, social, behavioral, and human-centered aspect. Moreover many disciplines have research related to cybersecurity. This is an interdisciplinary workshop whose goal is to further advance the cybersecurity discipline. It is widely understood that other disciplines also contribute to this advancement. Although not restricted solely to the intersection of cybersecurity and social/behavioral sciences, it is expected that most research fall at that intersection. Other intersections, such as cybersecurity and law to name one, will also be considered.

Each paper should clearly indicate how it is connected to cybersecurity and to the social/behavioral sciences.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
