CyCon, the International Conference on Cyber Conflict, is organised annually by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. CyCon 2020 will take place from 26 to 29 May 2020, in Tallinn, Estonia. CyCon 2020, entitled 20/20 Vision: The Next Decade, will ask questions about how cyberspace and cyber conflict will continue to evolve in the 2020s. Can we see the future of the cyber domain? And if so, how precisely can we predict it? What are the new emerging technologies, policies and legal frameworks that will shape the future at societal and personal levels? New, often unpredictable, technological advances have been characteristic of the cyber domain from its very beginning; recent years have shown that unexpected side-effects have posed challenges to the way cyberspace has been developing so far. How can we ensure that the next decade’s cyberspace, continuously open to technical innovation, will be more transparent, predictable, safe and secure, and still reflect our values? Is our vision clear and deep enough to understand and influence the way cyberspace might, or even must, evolve? The theme of the CyCon 2020 conference should be considered as inspiring, not restricting.
