Community College Cyber Summit seeks proposals

March 1, 2018

The Community College Cyber Summit (3CS) is looking for educators, researchers and students to submit proposals for the fifth annual event scheduled Aug. 2 to 4, in Gresham and Portland, Oregon.

3CS is the only national academic conference tailored to cybersecurity education at community colleges. Faculty and administrators learn about the latest technology, research and resources to assure students are properly educated in the cybersecurity field. Not only does 3CS focus on college faculty and administrators, but also those interested in becoming involved in cybersecurity, those wanting to incorporate cybersecurity into curricula, and students eager to learn.

This year’s theme is “Expanding Expertise – Transforming Cybersecurity Programs.” Interested in submitting a proposal?
Submit your breakout session proposal for one of four tracks: faculty and colleges new to cybersecurity; experienced in cybersecurity and CAE2Y aspirants; expanding expertise to new technologies and new arenas; and student track, which includes summer camps, mentoring, developing competitive teams, and student competitions. Knowledgeable students are encouraged to submit.

We seek proposals for three-hour workshops or one-hour presentations, and can be entered by two- and four-year college faculty, administrators, students, governments, private industries, associations, or consultants.

“Cybersecurity experts assemble at 3CS with enthusiasm, because they (that is, you) have discovered that the Summit is the most effective vehicle available for proselytizing and sharing your ideas, innovations, and successes.” says Dr. Bob Spear, 3CS chair. “We look forward to reading your proposal.”

All proposals should be submitted by March 15. For more information or to make a submission, visit
