ISDFS is the premier event that brings together industry professionals, academics, and engineers to exchange information and ideas on digital forensics, cybersecurity, big data privacy and security, artificial intelligence in security and forensics, software engineering, signal processing, and computer science in general.

The symposium will be held by “Firat University” in Elazığ, Turkey, and will be available ONLINE as well. Special sessions, workshops, tutorials, keynotes, panel discussions, posters, and oral presentations will be included in the symposium program.

All papers will be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers (single-blinded review). Accepted full papers will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Topics within the scope of the symposium include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

Digital Forensics
Cyber Security
Data Privacy
Cryptography
Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML)
Big Data
Computer Science
