New to the Virginia Cybersecurity Education Conference this year - we're introducing a poster track!

Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to present their cybersecurity related work, along with cybersecurity educators and practitioners. There will be a group of judges who will present an Award of Excellence to an undergraduate student and graduate student. There will also be an Innovation in K-12 Cybersecurity Education award, Innovation in Post-Secondary Cybersecurity Education, and Excellence Cybersecurity Education and Industry Partnership.
