Call For Papers

First Open EIT ICT Labs Workshop on Smart Grid Security
Berlin, December 3rd, 2012

Call for Contributions (Talks and Poster Presentations)

General Information

The First Open EIT ICT Labs Workshop on Smart Grid Security, an activity of the action line
smart energy systems of the EIT ICT Labs, will be held at the EIT ICT Co-Location Centre
Node Berlin, alongside the 2012 Berlin IEEE Innovative Smart Grid Conference, on December
3rd, 2012. The Co-location Centre (CLC) is inside the campus of TU Berlin, in the heart of the
city’s west – a hotspot where education, research and industry, see
nodes-co-location-centres/berlin/. SmartGridSec12 is also co-sponsored by the Network
of Excellence on Engineering Secure Future Internet SW, NESSoS,

Context and Motivation

The need for a reliable, efficient, and sustainable energy supply is steadily increasing. The
Smart Grid is proposed as an innovative, flexible, adaptable system which revolutionizes the
current interconnection architecture and creates new services and offering new management
and business opportunities for many stakeholders. Real-time communication between the
consumer and the utility will allow the consumer to optimize local energy production, storage
and usage; power will flow in different directions, depending on where generation takes place;
buildings will actively participate of in the grid as consumers, producers, and energy storage
facilities; electro-cars can be charged during low-demand periods and used as short-term
energy storage.

Components will communicate with each other and will provide operational and nonoperational
information to users and administrators. This will require the use of global
communication networks, like the Internet, and will open the door to conventional hacking and
to cyber attacks. Not only will it be necessary to carefully assess the threads and risks, but
also to have a consensus on the definition and implementation of measures and mechanisms
to cope with them, or to recover from them. The infrastructure, workflows, processes and
systems must be protected against unauthorized modification, required information should be
accessible in the right place at the right time, the sensitive personally identifiable information
(PII) related to the consumption of energy, the location of the electric car, but also confidential
business information etc must remain secure from unauthorized access.

There is a clear need in Europe to integrate the fragmented research and development efforts
in securing the Smart Grid. This workshop will be a venue to share and consolidate results,
plan joint work, and create networks to accomplish these ambitioned goals.
Program Committee welcomes proposals for contributions on any topics related to:

- Attackers, Threats, Risk Analysis
- Security of Smart Grid protocols
- IDS / IPS / SIEM for Smart Grids / SCADA systems
- Security related Smart Grid test beds and simulators
- Security for long term deployment
- Securing the Smart Grids from the business and market perspective: Products, Stakeholders, Models
- Cross organizational security aspects
- Real-time monitoring and recovery
- Privacy issues
- Standardization
- Certification, Regulatory issues

Program Chairs:

Joël Chinnow (DAI)
