Event | Cyber Defence Next Generation Technology and Science Conference

After due consideration of the possible impact of COVID-19 on participants, the organising committee and sponsors have agreed that the CDNG2020 will not be continuing as planned on 24 and 25 March 2020. CDNG2020 has been postponed, and the date and relevant details will be confirmed at a later stage.

The aim is to have the community of Cyber-Security under the “Next Generation Defence Technologies | Cyber Research” program in collaboration with DST, Data61 and partner universities meet together, expose relevant research activities and discuss future collaborations.

The conference will be a venue for PhD students, postdocs and more generally Academics and industrials to share thoughts on what the future challenges in Cyber Security and Cyber Defence look like and how to address them, how best to collaborate, presenting ongoing work, work in Progress and Extended Summary of Recent work potentially published in 2018-2020.

It is very valuable to have a forum where the wider community interested in cyber defence meets and unify different perspectives, to hopefully start discussions amongst different smaller communities interested in this problem, and hopefully foster fruitful long-term collaborations with DST, Data61 and the broader network.
