Call For Papers

This is a call for papers for the 2nd ACM International Conference on High Confidence Networked Systems (HiCoNS) to be held April 9-11, 2013 as part of Cyber Physical Systems Week 2013 (CPSWeek 2012) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA.

-Extended Abstracts Due: November 15, 2012
-Authors Notified: December 15, 2012
-Camera Ready Full Papers Due: February 15, 2013
-Conference Dates: April 9-11, 2013

HiCoNS aims to bring together novel concepts and theories that will help in the development of the science of high confidence networked systems, in particular those considered cyber-physical systems (CPS). The conference will focus on system theoretic approaches to address fundamental challenges to increase the confidence of networked CPS by making them more secure, dependable, and trustworthy. An emphasis will be the control and verification challenges arising as a result of complex interdependencies between networked systems, in particular those at the intersection of cyber and physical areas. In doing so, the conference will advance the development of a principled approach to high-confidence networked CPS.

Topics of interest include:
-Taxonomy of attacks and attack models for control systems
-Novel security challenges in control systems
-Testbeds for security of critical infrastructure systems
-Decision and game theoretic approaches to security and reliability
-Design architectures for prevention and resilience against attacks
-Risk assessment and verification of security properties
-Detectability and diagnosis of attacks
-Economics based studies of security and reliability
-Resilience and robustness against attacks
-Response and reconfiguration methods
-Cyber awareness of human-centric systems
-Complexity and resilience in control systems

Approaches that can be applied to particular critical infrastructure systems in Transportation (surface and aviation), Energy (smart grid and building energy management), and Healthcare (medical systems and associated embedded devices) are particularly welcomed but other areas will be explored. Equally welcomed is foundational work that cuts across multiple application areas or advances the scientific understanding of underlying principles for the development of high-confidence (secure, reliable, robust, and trustworthy) networked cyber-physical systems. This includes ways to measure the security properties of a system, science-based principals of security and dependability, and methods to conduct robust and repeatable experimentation.

This conference will engage researchers from multiple disciplines, including information security, network and systems security, security economics, game theory, and control theory and link work being done in the applied areas with foundational work to advance a science base for high-confidence networked systems that aims to provide a means of building such systems in a principled way.
