This year there will be a “technical” track and “multidisciplinary” track. Based on all admissible submissions an international jury will select a paper top three for each of the two tracks.

The main researchers of these papers will be invited to each give a short presentation at the 2023 FUSION Conference on the 23rd of May at The Hague Conference Center New Babylon. All 6 nominees receive a signed certificate for their participation, worthwhile mentioning on their Curriculum Vitae.

During the conference one of the top three papers in each track will be declared the best Dutch Cyber Security Technical/Multidisciplinary Research Paper 2023. The Dutch Cyber Security Research Paper Awards will be a chart, a bonus cheque and a photo-moment, including some press attention.
