The 9th Annual Cyber and Information Security Research (CISR) Conference (formerly CSIIR Workshop) will be held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and published by the ACM. The aim of this year's conference is to present, discuss and publish novel theoretical and empirical research focused on one or more of the Federal Cybersecurity themes. Cyberspace is fundamental to our national prosperity and security, as it has become critical to commerce, research, education, and government. Realizing the benefits of this shared environment requires that we are able to properly balance the risks and rewards, understand and communicate threats to security and privacy, and rapidly adapt any resulting approach to a changing adversarial environment. The scope of interest covers a wide range of topics related to cyber and information security research. This year’s conference will include presentations and demonstrations of technologies from the DOE Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS), the DOE Cyber Sciences Labs (CSL), and the DHS Transition To Practice (TTP) Program.
