About the Seminar

Call for Papers

The Organizing Committee is calling for Research Articles from Law Students, Academicians, Lawyers, Social Workers, Policy Makers, and Officials from various Departments- Representatives from Institutions and professional; NGOs, Social Activists, Social Science Researchers, and Faculty and Research Scholars.

Terms including cybercrime, cyber-crime, computer crime, cloud-crime, and computer misuse are often used interchangeably and can refer to any internet- or computer-related criminal activityOver the past five years, the number of cybercrime cases has steadily increased. Cybercrime is on the rise in India with the increasing use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). But despite this alarming trend, law enforcement’s ability to investigate cybercrime remains limited.

Due to perceptions of anonymity and distance from the offline world, internet users experience a false sense of security, and online offenders are psychologically, socially, and physically further removed from their offences and victims, encounter fewer and/or less severe consequences for their behaviours and are likely to repeat these offences, emboldened by their experience. Victims of cybercrime under-report their victimisation in comparison to traditional crimes, proposed to stem from a perceived lack of understanding and preparedness, and both victims and others express confusion over which organisation to report to. Training to increase knowledge and provide standardised responses to reports of cybercrime, as well as increased public engagement and signposting, may help improve reporting rates and experiences.

This seminar aims to conduct discussions among legal luminaries, academicians, scientists,  industrialists, environmentalists, and other stakeholders on the issues of cybercrimes influencing various nuances of our lives. The seminar seeks to distillate the various suggestions and experiences of various experts to ensure a fruitful proceeding of the seminar.

Moreover, this International seminar provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent trends and concerns as well as challenges encountered and solutions under the topic of discussion.
