We are delighted to inform you about an exciting international conference devoted to Cybercrime. Building upon the great success of the first, 2-day conference on Cybercrime at Uclan in June 2016- ‘Rethinking Cybercrime’- UCRU are now holding the event on an annual basis. The theme of the ‘2nd Annual Conference on Cybercrime’ is to critically examine the current ‘state of play’ in global cybercrime and to conceptualise developments, in tandem with attempts to inform social and educational policy and to respond to threats and combat cybercrime. The emphasis in this ‘2nd Annual Conference on Cybercrime’ is more upon the ‘application’ of theory and the implications for policy and response to threats but UCRU warmly welcome submissions for papers and poster presentations on any aspect of Cybercrime.
