***ICR2017 Proceedings & Bios in e-reader / in pdf***

For the 3rd year in a row (we must be doing something right?), Tallinn University of Technology Centre for Digital Forensics and Cyber Security and StudyITin.ee have the pleasure of inviting you to attend ICR2017 (Interdisciplinary Cyber Research workshop 2017) to be held at the Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia on the 8th of July, 2017. The aim of the workshop is to bring together young as well as established scholars undertaking research in various disciplines related to information and communication technologies such as computer sciences, political and social sciences, and law.

Last two years have been a great success with workshops boasting each year around 25 speakers from 10 countries, together with close to hundred workshop participants. Please see for reference the ICR2016 Workshop proceedings (in e-reader)(in pdf), ICR2016 Agenda and Speaker/moderator bios and ICR2015 Workshop Proceedings (in e-reader) (in pdf) and the ICR2015 Agenda.

This year’s workshop follows the same interdisciplinary format. Our aim is to promote sharing and discussing novel research across different domains, thereby allowing for the creation of new synergies as well as being informed and inspired by “cyber”-research carried out by other disciplines than your own. Foremost, the workshop offers a friendly and forward-thinking environment for getting feedback on your ideas from an international pool of researchers. The workshop will be running in parallel sessions dedicated to more specific research areas, each session being chaired by established scholars and professionals.

You can participate as a speaker (submitting an abstract+delivering a presentation) or simply join our wonderful audience. Speakers are requested to submit a 1000-word abstract. Abstracts should explain the relevance of the research, outline principle research questions, and expected or achieved results together with your research methods. In addition to young researchers and scholars, we welcome student submissions based on Master or PhD thesis research (and bachelor level students are very welcome to join in as audience). All authors will get feedback from our distinguished peer reviewers and selected authors are invited to present their ideas at the workshop. All selected abstracts will be published as workshop proceedings by Tallinn University of Technology (with an ISBN number). Selected authors are also invited to submit their research as an academic article for established academic journals, subject to additional review process.
