The CyberSci Symposium 2017, for which the theme was “The Battle for Cyberspace,” brought together participants from industry, government, and academia to share the important cybersecurity research and development (R&D) challenges.
The Symposium took place September 28, 2017, at ICF’s headquarters in Fairfax, VA. Technical track presentations were selected through anonymous peer review. Presentations ranged from designing intelligent assistants and using supervised learning to prioritize IDPS alerts to adaptive command and control in the age of hybrid warfare.
Summaries of the keynote speeches are provided along with recaps of the panel discussions and breakout sessions. Information presented here represents the opinions of ICF, not necessarily those of individual CyberSci 2017 panelists and presenters. In addition, the CyberSci Symposium provided an opportunity to develop Cybersecurity Research and Development Recommendations for the Government of the United States and the broader cybersecurity R&D community in academia and the private sector. These Recommendations reflect the view of the Symposium’s organizers, and are not necessarily the views of the Symposium’s participants. The Recommendations, also available separately, are included in this Proceedings.
