22–23 January 2020
E-9, Islamabad, Pakistan

Organized By: NCCS

Welcome to ICCWS-2020

Cyberspace, a fifth generation warfare domain, has recently attracted attention of many developed and developing countries. The reports of government websites being hacked and sensitive data being stolen by foreign groups are not new anymore. It is noteworthy that effective cyber-attacks can cripple entire nation’s infrastructure and damage our economy. Therefore, Cyber Security has been recognized as a global problem, transcending national boundaries. It is a rapidly growing challenge with new sophisticated zero-day attacks costing economies Billion of dollars annually. The scale of the problem, rapid advancement, and technical nature of cyber-attacks widens the Cyber Security skills gap. To create cyber security awareness and ensure knowledge spill over to the society, there is a dire need of a domain specific scientific platform in the region to provide a knowledge sharing venue for researchers, academicians and industry experts.


The International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS), will be held in Air University, Islamabad in 2020.


National Centre for Cyber Security (NCCS) at Air University Islamabad in technical co- sponsorship with IEEE Islamabad Section (R10) is going to organize a two-day event to invite researchers and cyber security practitioners across the world to share their research work and experiences related to the state-of-the-art and the emerging areas of cyber security. ICCWS-2020 will provide its participants an opportunity to learn, share and demonstrate their ideas, strategies, and policies pertaining to cyber security as well as dealing with the development, research and adaptation challenges related to cyber security domains. Prospective authors are invited to submit their original technical papers for presentation and publication at ICCWS 2020.
