Conference radar for cybersecurity

Planning scientific publications made easy: ATHENE launches new service for researchers in the fields of cybersecurity and data protection

Starting immediately, the National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity ATHENE offers a wide-ranging overview of the most important scientific conferences in the fields of cybersecurity and data protection at https://www.athene-center.de/cfp. Currently, the list includes more than 100 events and it can be filtered by event dates and submission deadlines. Additional filtering options allow for quickly finding suitable publication opportunities of various research topics, while taking into account the scientific reputation of each event listed. 

Writing and publishing scientific articles holds great significance for researchers: they serve as a presentation of their work results, a summary of their study results and evaluate trends and developments from a scientific perspective. Publications at renowned conferences demonstrate their subject-specific knowledge and initiate discussions about the researchers’ work with other experts in their respective fields. In accordance with the well-established standards of the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia, CORE, the conferences are ranked from A+, to A, B and C – with A+ and A designating the top conferences. Young researchers mostly aim to publish scientific articles in connection with their doctoral theses at such high-ranking conferences. The ATHENE Conference Radar utilizes this international standard, but lists conferences without a CORE ranking as well. All event entries are checked and updated regularly.

“With this overview of current conferences, ATHENE provides a highly useful service to the worldwide research community. For researchers, it is very important to keep an eye on conferences, rankings and deadlines.”, says Prof Michael Waidner, the ATHENE director, professor for informatics at TU Darmstadt and head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT.


The National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity ATHENE is a research center of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for its two Darmstadt-based institutes SIT and IGD, in cooperation with Technische Universität Darmstadt and Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences. As Europe’s largest research center for cybersecurity, ATHENE develops security solutions for the benefit of the economy, society and states, regularly consults businesses and public administration, and supports company founders as well as startups. ATHENE is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Hessen State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts (HMWK).
