Call For Papers

HiCoNS 2014
3rd ACM International Conference on High Confidence Networked Systems
April 15-17, 2014 Berlin, Germany


Important dates:
Submission deadline: October 14, 2013.
Author notification: December 17, 2013.
Camera-ready submission: February 3, 2014
Conference dates: April 15-17, 2014

HiCoNS 2014 will be part of the 7th CPSWeek (Cyber-Physical Systems
Week) collocating 5 conferences: HSCC, the Real-Time and Embedded
Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS), the International
Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN), the
Conference on High Confidence Networked Systems (HiCoNS) and the
International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS).

Conference Scope:

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) and their
interactions with human decision makers. 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 incentive challenges
arising as a result of complex interdependencies between networked systems,
in particular those at the intersection of cyber and physical dynamics.
In doing so, the conference will advance the development of a principled
approach to high-confidence networked CPS.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Threat assessment of networked systems
- Detectability and diagnosis of faults and attacks
- Intrusion and anomaly detection systems
- Robust and resilient network control
- Security economics
- Game theoretic approaches for security of networked systems
- Mechanism design and incentives for resilience
- Management of interdependent risks
- Security and privacy of networks
- Adversarial machine learning
- Security of sensor-actuator networks
- Design architectures for prevention, detection, and response
- Cyber awareness of human-centric systems
- Response and reconfiguration methods
- Test-beds for security of critical infrastructures
- Model based design for integration of security and control

Approaches that can be applied to particular critical infrastructure
systems in Transportation (surface and aviation), Energy (smart grid and
building energy management), Water and gas distribution, 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.

The conference aims at engaging researchers from multiple disciplines,
control theory, computer security, network security, information economics,
game theory, and and theory of incentives, and linking work being done in
the applied areas with foundational work to advance a science base for
high-confidence networked systems in order to provide the means of
building such systems in a principled way.
