In the last 20 years, the Dutch information security community grew from a handful of brilliant mathematicians to a large community of cybersecurity researchers with representatives from many of the technical and the social sciences. The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the European Commission have provided over a hundred million Euros of funding in long term Dutch Cyber Security Research. This has led to dozens of new businesses, hundreds of highly skilled employees in all major corporations, government departments and universities, and thousands of scientific publications and patents.
Dutch Cyber Security best Research Paper (DCSRP) Award
Announcing the winner of the Dutch Cybersecurity best Research Paper award at ICT.OPEN became a tradition. This contest will be organized for the fourth time! ICT security research groups at Dutch universities and knowledge centres are invited to nominate their best recent (2017/2018 accepted) research papers, with a maximum of two papers per group. Again a jury of international scientists in the fields of cybersecurity will be formed and asked to judge submitted papers. Dutch ICT cybersecurity research group leaders are asked to send in a maximum of two papers per research group before January 19th, 2018 to dcypher.
Out of all nominated papers the jury selects both the top three as well as the winning paper. In the first week of March dcypher will inform all three selected nominees. They are expected to present their paper March 20th at ICT.OPEN in the Cybersecurity Track. All presenters receive a signed certificate. The winner receives the Dutch Cyber Security best Research Paper Award.
ICT.OPEN is the principal ICT research conference in the Netherlands. It features two distinguished plenary key notes and invited speakers, as well as many oral and poster presentations. The state of art in ICT research is presented and discussed here. More information: www.ictopen.nl
