eCrime has adopted the IEEE publication format. Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, and formatted using the IEEE conference template, which can be found at:
Submissions should be anonymized, excluding author names, affiliations and acknowledgments. Authors’ own work should be referred to in the third person.
Paper should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, excluding the bibliography and appendices.
Committee members are not required to read appendices, so ensure that the main paper is intelligible without them.
Submitted papers that do not adhere to all the above guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits.
Authors of accepted papers must present them and register at the event.
For paper submissions, use the New Submission option at: https://ecrime2023papers.hotcrp.com/
Authors will be asked to indicate whether they would like their submissions to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award. Any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. We understand that some authors may face difficulties in obtaining funding to attend the conference. Therefore, a limited number of stipends are available for those who are unable to secure funding. Students who will present their accepted papers themselves will be given priority in receiving such assistance.
Submitted papers risk being rejected without consideration of their merits if they do not follow all the above guidelines.
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.
Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.
NOTE: This year’s eCrime program marks 20 years since APWG’s founding. Originally organized by a coalition of banks, technology companies and US federal police agencies, investigating the then-new threat of phishing, APWG has evolved into a global coalition of cybercrime experts spanning the globe from a number of industries, research disciplines and public-sector entities, from key nation-states to global multilateral organizations.
