5th Cybersecurity Workshop Call For Papers

Challenges Facing Test and Evaluation

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Cybersecurity continues to be at the forefront of the DoD acquisition community. As this contested environment brings new challenges at as accelerated rate, the T&E community must be prepared to meet new requirements.

This Workshop provides an opportunity to share ideas among experienced T&E professionals regarding threat ad requirements, test capabilities, autonomous systems, and evaluation methodologies. Our goal is to share ideas on how to better characterize cybersecurity threats, evaluate system performance when attacked by a cybersecurity threat, and assess risk of using the system in the presence of a cybersecurity threat.

Please join us in Belcamp, Maryland, as members of the T&E community from academia, industry, and government discuss the evolving discipline of Cybersecurity T&E. Come share your thoughts, connect with others, and learn from some of the leading experts at this Workshop. The cyber threat will only increase with time. See you there!

WHY PRESENT AT THE CYBERSECURITY WORKSHOP

If you’ve conducted ground-breaking research, used “best-in-class” techniques, deployed  successful processes, or developed unique procedures in the field of test and evaluation, work that your peers would be interested in learning, presenting at ITEA events is an important part of your professional development, by providing you with an amazing opportunity to learn from your peers, share your experiences, and contribute to advancing the Test and Evaluation profession.

Presenting at ITEA events provides you the chance to:

  • Represent your field of interest, allowing researchers in other disciplines, policymakers, and the public to become aware of the innovative work being generated in your particular area of expertise;
  • Practice your presentation skills;
  • Help you develop the expertise needed to discuss your work in a clear and meaningful way;
  • Learn how to answer specific questions and present your work to a range of individuals (who may or may not be familiar with your field of research);
  • Contribute to your overall professional profile by showing others that you regularly disseminate your work to colleagues, as well as that you keep up-todate on cutting-edge and best practices in T&E; and,
  • Help you establish contacts that will foster friendships with other motivated T&E professionals who can be resources for you at any stage of your career.

GUIDELINES FOR PRESENTATIONS AT ITEA EVENTS

Presentations at ITEA events should:

  • Contribute technically sound knowledge in a particular area of test and evaluation;
  • Present new knowledge or experience that has not been published previously; and,
  • Not be commercial, marketing, or “infomercial” in nature. The presentation’s introductory slide is the only slide that may contain the presenter’s company name and/or logo. Presentations that promote specific companies, organizations, products, or services are reserved for the Exhibit Hall or Vendor Track Sessions, and strictly prohibited in Pre-Workshop sessions (including tutorials, demonstrations, and other presentations), and the Workshop Plenary and Technical Track sessions.

PUBLISHING YOUR WORK IN THE ITEA JOURNAL OF TEST AND EVALUATION

If you would like to also submit a paper for consideration for publication in The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation you will need to prepare a full manuscript that adheres to the Journal guidelines. The submitting author must also complete and sign a copyright agreement and release form.

Please go HERE for the manuscript guidelines.
