IEEE ICCST2020: 54th IEEE International Carnahan Conference on Security Technology

The IEEE International Carnahan Conference on Security Technology (ICCST 2020) will be held during 2-4 September 2019 at the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. ICCST2020 is the 54th annual edition of ICCST.

The International Carnahan Conference on Security Technology, sponsored by IEEE, is one of the longest running international technical symposia. This conference has a broad scope and invites papers on advanced security technologies including physical, cyber and electronic security research, development, systems engineering, testing, evaluation, case studies and new research lines to face current and future challenges. All papers will be carefully subjected to a blind review process. The conference proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore® digital library. Selected papers will be forwarded for journal publication.
