SPECIAL OFFER FOR POLISH UNIVERSITIES TO ATTEND APWG.EU’S eCRIME2018.eu SYMPOSIUM

To whom it may concern (please feel free to spread the word):

APWG.eu, the European Chapter of APWG, one of the world’s leading working groups against cybercrime, is celebrating its annual symposium (eCrime2018.eu) in Krakow next September 17 through 19.

The event will gather a limited number experts on the different forms of response to cybercrime (academic, institutional, legal, technical…) from all over the world in three days of sessions (from Monday, September 17, noon to Wednesday, September 19, afternoon) that will cover topics ranging from case-studies on new forms of e-criminality to open debates on the consequences of legal reforms such as EU’s GDPR for the exchange of e-crime data among responders. Other groundbreaking issues such as the presentation of innovative actions within the H2020 EU funding scheme or the latest research on fields such as cryptocurrencies or the use of AI in the fight against cybercrime will round up the event’s agenda, whose final version is to be published in the following days:

NASK and CERT.pl, at the core of Poland’s governmental response to e-crime, are among the entities supporting the event, which also has been twinned with the country’s biggest technical conference, the Security Case Study Conference, taking place in Warsaw on September 13-14, just some days before eCrime2018.eu.

APWG.eu would like to extend the scope of such support from the Polish cybersecurity community to the Academia and, thus, has decided to prepare a special offer to ensure the participation of members from Polish Universities in the eCrime2018.eu Symposium.

The offer is simple: APWG.eu will issue up to 30 free registration codes for eCrime2018.eu (social events included) to the first 30 students, researchers, or faculty members from Cybersecurity or Computer Science Studies of any of the official Universities from Poland that send a valid application at our event’s e-mail address, ecrime2018eu@apwg.eu, before September 10.

The offer is also extensive to students (in this case, from master, doctoral, or postdoctoral levels only), researchers, and faculty members of any other Studies that are currently working on any e-crime related research.

Applications will be reviewed strictly in arrival order and final acceptance, which will be communicated to each candidate individually, will be based on the exclusive criteria of APWG.eu. Candidates may be required to prove their connection with a Polish University. Failure to do so could eventually involve the cancellation of their free registration.

Travel and accommodation expenses are not included in this offer and, consequently, are the sole responsibility of each attendee.

Offer prepared in Barcelona (Spain), on August 30, 2018.
