2020 NSF Cybersecurity Summit Call For Participation - NOW OPEN - Deadline is Monday, June 29th

It is our pleasure to announce that the 2020 NSF Cybersecurity Summit is scheduled to take place Tuesday, September 22 through Thursday the 24th. Due to the impact of the global pandemic, we will hold this year’s summit on-line instead of in-person as originally planned.

The final program is still evolving, but we will maintain the mission to provide a format designed to increase the NSF community’s understanding of cybersecurity strategies that strengthen trustworthy science: what data, processes, and systems are crucial to the scientific mission, what risks they face, and how to protect them.


Call for Participation (CFP)

Program content for the summit is driven by our community. We invite proposals for presentations, breakout and training sessions, as well as nominations for student scholarships. The deadline for CFP submissions is June 29th To learn more about the CFP, please visit:
