Interdisciplinary Cyber Research (ICR) conference 2020

ICR2020 (the 6th Interdisciplinary Cyber Research conference) is organised with the support of TalTech Centre for Digital Forensics and Cyber Security. The event is held at the TalTech MEKTORY on the 7th of December 2020. The aim of the conference is to bring together young as well as established scholars undertaking research in various disciplines related to information and communication technologies such as computer sciences, political and social sciences, and law.

Last years’ events have been a great success with conference boasting each year around 25 speakers from 10 countries, together with 150+ participants. 

ICR will offer six academic sessions for sharing and discussing novel research across interdisciplinary domains. We promote the creation of new synergies as well as being informed and inspired by “cyber”-research carried out by other disciplines than your own. Foremost, the sessions offer a friendly and forward-thinking environment for getting feedback on your ideas from an international pool of researchers. The conference will be running in parallel sessions dedicated to more specific research areas, each session being chaired by established scholars and professionals.

In addition to ICR sessions, our agenda will feature workshops, demos and other activities.
