ICSS 2022 : Eighth Annual Industrial Control System Security (ICSS) Workshop
Call For Papers
Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems (ICS) monitor and control a wide range of industrial and infrastructure processes such as water treatment, power generation and transmission, oil and gas refining, and steel manufacturing. Furthermore, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is rapidly expanding the interconnectivity of ICS environments and introducing many new threats. These environments have been identified as a key target of more generic threats (ransomware), along with more recent tailored nation-state threats targeting safety instrumented systems (TRISIS).
The critical requirement for high availability in SCADA and industrial control systems, along with the use of resource constrained computing devices, legacy operating systems, and proprietary software applications limits the applicability of traditional information security solutions. The goal of this workshop is to explore new techniques to improve the security-critical control systems in the face of emerging threats. Papers of interest including (but not limited to) the following subject categories are solicited:
● IIoT security
● Intrusion detection and prevention
● Emerging threats to ICS
● Vulnerability analysis and risk management
● Digital forensics for ICS/PLCs
● ICS-oriented cybersecurity education
● Performance evaluation of security methods and tools in control systems
● Innovative ICS/SCADA testbed designs
● Supply chain vulnerabilities and protections
Technical Paper Submissions
Submissions should be 5-10 pages, using the double-column ACM proceedings format (acmart) template available at
