Taking Back Cyberspace From the Cybercrime Plexus | #cybercrime | #computerhacker


APWG 2024 eCrime Conference Focuses on Rolling Back Digital Chaos That’s Come to Rule the Internet and Its Animating Infrastructure in the Last 20 Years

CAMBRIDGE, MA / ACCESSWIRE / May 6, 2024 / This year’s APWG Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (eCrime 2024) in Boston explores the theme of taking back cyberspace from the criminal plexus that has claimed and criminalized so much of the internet’s infrastructure and fueled new society-scaled threats that are growing by the day.

APWG’s directors are pleased and honored to welcome the 2024 eCrime program committee: (L to R): Gen
APWG’s directors are pleased and honored to welcome the 2024 eCrime program committee: (L to R): General Chair Laurin Weissinger, (Yale University); Program Chair Ebrima Ceesay (Mastercard); and Publications Chair Miranda Bruce (University of Oxford)

APWG eCrime 2024 General Chair Laurin Weissinger asks, “Are we on our way to a real-life version of William Gibson novels – or Star Trek-esque future where crime becomes less and less relevant? Either way, we must focus on the here and now, what is actually happening in cybercrime and cyberspace, to shape the future. eCrime is one of the few forums that convenes the mix of people who can actually provide answers to the organizing questions of the age.”

eCrime 2024 examines the economic foundations, behavioral elements, technological exposures, policy aspects and other dimensions that fuel the burgeoning global, multi-billion-dollar cybercrime plexus at its peer-reviewed, published 19th annual eCrime symposium on Sept. 24-26, 2024.

As APWG enters its third decade, the growing threat of cybercrime expands apparently unabated. The APWG’S latest quarterly report, Q4 2024, reported that the number of phishing attacks in 2024 eclipsed every previous year. Which makes the ideas and insights of industry interveners and researchers at APWG eCrime 2024 more important than ever.

APWG eCrime 2024 combines a peer-reviewed conference for academic researchers with general sessions open to industry, government, law enforcement and multilateral organizations. eCrime features keynote presentations from global thought-leaders, as well as technical and practical operationally focused sessions, and interactive panels. This is APWG eCrime’s 19th year as a peer-reviewed research conference with published proceedings, the last 16 of which were through the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

The objective of eCrime is to foster practical collaboration and the exchange of catalytic ideas by academic researchers, industry security practitioners, and law enforcement professionals in the global struggle against cybercrime.

The symposium’s proceedings are in English.

Detecting/preventing abuse of internet infrastructure to neutralize cybercrimes

Detecting/isolating cybercrime gangs and attendant money laundering enterprises

Cybercrime’s evolution in specific verticals: (e.g. financial services, e-commerce, health, energy & supplies)

Cybercriminal cloaking techniques – and counter-cloaking tools and approaches

Design and evaluation of UI/UXs to neutralize fraud and enhance user security

AUTHORS’ GUIDANCE

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:

http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html.

Submissions should be anonymised, 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, please use the New Submission option at:
https://ecrime2024.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.

A SHORT HISTORY OF THE APWG SYMPOSIUM ON ELECTRONIC CRIME RESEARCH

The Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (APWG eCrime) was founded in 2006 as the eCrime Researchers Summit, conceived by APWG Secretary General Peter Cassidy as a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary venue to present basic and applied research into electronic crime and engaging every aspect of its evolution – as well as spotlighting technologies and techniques for cybercrime detection, response, forensics and prevention.

Since then, what had been initially a technology-focused conference has incrementally expanded its focus to cover behavioral, social, economic, and legal/policy dimensions as well as technical aspects of cybercrime, following the interests of our correspondent investigators, the symposium’s managers as well as the APWG’s own directors and steering committee members.

Scores upon scores of papers exploring these dimensions of cybercrime at APWG eCrime have been published by the IEEE APWG | eCrime Research Papers> as well as by Taylor & Francis and the Association of Computing Machinery (in the very earliest years of the symposium).

With its multi-disciplinary approach, APWG eCrime every year brings together the most heterogeneous community of counter-eCrime researchers and industrial stakeholders to confer over the latest research, and to foster collaborations between the leading investigators in this still nascent field of cybercrime studies.

The power of that community, over the years, has been expressed in their contributions to research in academia and industry, cited in the papers above, their innovations for industry – and the globally scaled research projects they’ve organizing today such as the PhishFarm browser block list latency measurement program that APWG eCrime-associated investigators are organizing: http://ecrimeresearch.org/phishfarm
