Research of the Internet as a site for communication and networking has
focused mostly on legal practices. Recent years have nevertheless seen a
significant increase in cybercrime, including illegal commerce being
conducted on various platforms. In the public eye, much of it is associated
with the non-indexed Dark Web, but research tells us that it is likewise
present on many clear web sites and being conducted via numerous social
media and instant messaging services.

Rarely a day goes by without cybercrime being reported in the media.
Examples include online trading in narcotics and other illicit goods and
services, the hijacking of individual accounts and organizational systems,
extortion, exit scams, fake investments in cryptocurrencies and even
blatant information manipulation for financial gain.

This minitrack aim is to give insights and develop a theoretical and
practical understanding of issues related to cybercrime without excluding
any methodological approaches. We welcome conceptual, theoretical,
empirical and methodological papers that enrich our understanding of
illegal online practices.

Cybertrespass (e.g., unauthorized system access)
Cyberdeception and cybertheft (e.g., online fraud, identity theft)
