The Computer Science and Telecommunications Board (CSTB) of the National Research Council (NRC) has announced prizes for research in cyberdeterrence. The CSTB announced prizes for papers submitted that address at least one of the Questions of Interest described in their call for papers.

The deadline for papers is July 9. However, the CSTB committee running this project encourages interested parties to submit abstracts (less than 500 words) of their paper(s) by April 1. The committee will select abstracts from those submitted and invite the authors to submit a first draft paper by May 21. After reviewing those papers, the committee may invite some of those authors to a June workshop to discuss the work.

You do not need to submit an abstract or first draft paper to be eligible for the $1000 prize. Papers must conform to the word and style guidelines described in the call for papers. The prize is contingent on the paper passing through the NRC review process, and winning papers will be published by the NRC in late 2010.
