2023 NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference

The 2023 NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference Planning Committee is announcing an extension of the deadline for its Call for Proposals to accommodate educators who have requested us to provide more time given their summer schedules and the July 4th holiday.  The Planning Committee is seeking timely and thought-provoking K12 cybersecurity education topics that will challenge and inform educational leaders from across the stakeholder community.

They 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 support one or more of the National K12 Cybersecurity Education Implementation Plan components and align with one of the five conference tracks:

1.   Increasing Cybersecurity Career Awareness
2.   Infusing Cybersecurity Across the Education Portfolio
3.   Integrating Innovative Cybersecurity Educational Approaches
4.   Designing Cybersecurity Academic and Career Pathways
5.   Promoting Cyber Awareness

The NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference takes place on December 4-5, 2023, at the Hilton Phoenix Resort at the Peak in Phoenix, Arizona.
