Call for papers for Novel Horizons: Responsible Behaviour in Cyberspace

Call for papers / 9 May 2018

We are proud to organize our first conference, part of an annual series, to encourage academic diversity in the study of cyber security. The theme this year is ‘Responsible Behaviour in Cyberspace’. The conference will take place in The Hague, The Netherlands from 5-7 November 2018. The deadline for submission of extended abstracts is 9 May 2018.

Lucas Kello is Associate Professor of International Relations, serves as Director of the Centre for Technology and Global Affairs, and is also co-Director of the interdisciplinary Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security at the Department of Computer Science at University of Oxford.

Duncan Hollis is the Laura H. Carnell Professor of Law at Temple Law School, Temple University. He is an elected member of the American Law Institute.

Bibi van den Berg is Professor of Cybersecurity Governance within the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs at the Institute of Security and Global Affairs.

The concept of cybersecurity does not have a clear definition, scope or edges, which may hamper academic and policy debate. One dominant take on cyber security is grounded in international relations and focuses on securing cyberspace or, more broadly, regulating (state) behaviour in cyberspace. However, responsible behaviour in cyberspace by both state and non-state actors touches upon a diverse range of disciplines. The key to understanding cyber security and the development of norms in cyberspace lies in bringing together the various disciplines that it relates to. This call for papers therefore invites extended abstracts from a wide range of academic disciplines.
