Call for Proposals: 2018 National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference


The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference is accepting proposals for its annual conference which will be held on December 3-4, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas. The annual conference is hosted by the Internet Keep Safe Coalition (iKeepSafe) and funded by a grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

The NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference is a two-day event that will focus on strategies to inspire cybersecurity career awareness, stimulate career exploration, and enable cybersecurity career preparedness for today’s youth. The conference will feature successful examples of collaboration, bold experiments and innovations, and other potentially game-changing methods in support of bringing together K12 educational leaders from academia, non-profit organizations, and government for two days of presentations, discussions, and focused hands-on workshops.

The NICE K12 Conference program committee seeks proposals from thought leaders in education, government, industry, students, and nonprofits exploring the themes of cybersecurity career awareness, infusing cybersecurity across the education portfolio, highlighting innovative cybersecurity educational approaches, designing cybersecurity academic and career pathways, and promoting cybersecurity awareness.
