We encourage proposals from a diverse array of organizations and individuals with different perspectives, including K12 educators, school counselors, students, institutions of higher education faculty, employers and practitioners, non-profits, curriculum providers, research centers, and training and certification providers. Topics should align with one of the five conference tracks:
1. Increasing Cybersecurity Career Awareness
2. Engaging Students Where Disciplines Converge
3. Stimulating Innovative Cybersecurity Educational Approaches
4. Designing Cybersecurity Academic and Career Pathways
5. Promoting Cyber Awareness
This fully virtual conference provides an array of presentation formats including live-virtual concurrent speaking and panel sessions, hybrid "Ted-X style" talks, hybrid poster sessions, and pre-recorded on-demand video presentations.
