Call for Papers

Conventional Cyber security solutions are unable to provide adequate protection to current and emerging highly complex heterogeneous and large-scale computer networks and communications, e.g. smart cities, smart grids etc. The attack detection systems need to offer effective ways to detect the involved, stealthy, complex and unpredictable cyber-attacks. A reconsideration approach to the cyber security is needed with emphasis on a move away from hypothetical risks, but towards the detection of real threats. Pro-active security approach with continuous monitoring and analysis abridges the dormancy between attack and detection. An all-inclusive data collection, analysis, intelligent application as well as situation-aware, self-healing and self-evolving properties will change the cyber security systems into smart cyber security systems.

This special issue on “Smart Cyber Security Systems” focuses on an emerging area for the International Journal of Cyber Situational Awareness. Cyber Security systems become a key research topic and this special issue provides an esteemed setting for the researchers from academia and industry practitioners working in computer network and communications technologies for security implementations in all layers. The primary focus is on original, high quality, unpublished research of theoretical and practical impact, including concepts, techniques, applications, practical experiences and also review articles. The objective of this special issue is to effect publication that addresses different security problems and their solutions in new frontiers of cyber-systems and cyber-technologies in the modern world.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
Advanced persistent threats on cyber systems
Cyber-attacks and its classification
Network traffic analysis for cyber security
Integrated and smarter sensors
Securely interconnected cyber systems
Response to cyber-attacks, investigation, and evidence handling
Intrusion detection and prevention for cyber security
Cyberspace protection and anti-malware
Mobility in Cyber-space
Cyber Forensics
Cyber Crimes
Nature-inspired and Bio-inspired Cyber security
Autonomic and Adaptive Cyber-Defense
Adaptive and Evolvable Systems
Competitive co-evolution

Submission Guidelines
Important Notes before submitting your manuscripts
1. Only original and previously unpublished manuscripts must be submitted to the IJCSA journal.
2. All accepted manuscripts will be checked against plagiarism using a number of sources including the IEEE PAL (Prohibited Authors List).
3. We only accept manuscripts dedicated and/or relating to Situational Awareness. We do NOT accept general purpose Cyber Security contributions. The IJCSA is solely dedicated to Cyber Situational Awareness; hence some excellent contributions relating to general purpose computing will be rejected.
4. All manuscripts must be prepared following the IJCSA paper template.
5. All manuscripts are subjected to multiple blind-peer reviews, and revisions may take longer than anticipated.
6. Please review our code of conducts policy -
7. Please review our process map -
8. Manuscript template can be download from this link -
