Conference Focus

The Internet has made it easier to perpetrate crimes by providing criminals an avenue for launching attacks with relative anonymity. The increased complexity of the communication and networking infrastructure is making investigation of the cyber crimes difficult. Clues of illegal activities are often buried in large volumes of data that needs to be sifted through in order to detect crimes and collect evidence. The investigations are increasingly cross-border requiring coordinated police efforts in different jurisdictions.

The field of digital forensics and cyber crime investigation has become very important for law enforcement, national security, and information assurance. This is a multidisciplinary area that encompasses law, computer science, finance, telecommunications, data analytics, and policing. This conference brings together practitioners and researchers from diverse fields providing opportunities for business and intellectual engagement among attendees.

We are providing a venue that not only offers chances for networking, but also high-quality training opportunities through expert speakers, state-of-the-art work from researchers around the world, and tutorials on basic and advanced forensic techniques and methods of cyber crime investigation. This ICST conference is endorsed by EAI and organized in cooperation with the University College Dublin Centre for Cybercrime Investigation and with the technical cooperation of Create-Net.

The following topics highlight the conference's theme:
  • Business Applications of Digital Forensics
    • e-Discovery
    • Civil Litigation Support
    • Incident Response
  • Cyber Crime Investigations
    • Online Fraud
    • Money Laundering

Research Papers

Papers describing original unpublished research are solicited. Submissions must not be concurrently under review by a conference, journal or any other venue that has proceedings.

Papers and presentations in the topic areas discussed are preferred, although contributions outside those topics may also be of interest. Please feel free at any time to contact the conference general chair if you have questions regarding your submission.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality through double-blind reviewing. Authors' names must not appear in the paper.

Accepted papers will be published in the ICDF2C 2011 Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for ComputerSciences, Social-Informatics and Tele-communications Engineering (LNICST) series. The proceedings will be available both as paper-based copies and via Springerlink, Springer's digital library. In addition, the content of the proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI, CrossRef and Zentralblatt Math, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

Extended versions of selected papers from the conference will be invited for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law.
