Results of survey on 2020 Cybersecurity Summit

The NSF Cybersecurity Summit Organizers would like to thank the community for providing comments on planning for the 2020 Summit in light of the Pandemic crisis. We are considering options in consultation with the program committee, taking this community input into account, and will make an announcement regarding our plans for the Summit as soon as they are finalized. We felt the survey responses might be of interest to others who face similar event planning uncertainties. Here are some key takeaways from the survey:
  • The Community greatly appreciated the opportunity to voice their opinion on the 2020 Summit.
  • Face-to-Face events provide many benefits for social networking that virtual meetings can't yet replicate.
  • However, the majority of respondents prefer having some type of virtual summit.
  • There were multiple comments that full-day programs are not desirable ("Zoom-Fatigue")

 The aggregated results are as follows:
