The SICSA Cyber Security research theme is pleased to announce the PhD Student Forum 2021. PhD students at SICSA Universities, whose research is aligned with Cyber Security, are invited to participate in the forum by submitting a poster of their current research. All submissions will be reviewed for inclusion in the forum. Students with an accepted submission are expected to attend and present their research at the online forum.

The online forum will be open to all SICSA PhD students, but only accepted submissions will get the opportunity to present and receive feedback on their work. Attendance is FREE, for both presenters and any other registered attendees. A Zoom link will be provided to all registered participants.


Submissions should include a one-page poster describing the research (max A2 size and in PDF format). Email the submission to with the subject: Cyber Security PhD Student Forum 2021.

Recognition, Lunch and Prizes
