IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on Inter-Dependent Networks (WIDN)
April, 27, Hong Kong, 2015

(in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2015 - April, 26 - May,1 , Hong Kong)



Modern networked systems, in particular, networked physical
infrastructures, are inter-dependent in such a way that changing in one
network may have a profound impact on other systems. One notable example of
such interdependent networked system is the smart-grid, of which the power
stations depend on communication networks for control and management and
vice versa, the communication networks depend on the power systems for
their electricity supports. Furthermore, the rapid adoption and
pervasiveness of computing, and emergence of smart cyber-physical systems
and Internet of Things (IoT) have created new capabilities for autonomy,
interoperability, interaction and cooperation between many critical
computing, communication and control networks (“cyber systems”) and
physical infrastructures and “smart” environments (“physical systems”).
Unfortunately, the connections with cyberspace also open to new surfaces of
vulnerabilities and new threat vectors. The challenge is to understand the
interdependencies of these systems and how the dynamics are cascaded
between them so as to design and develop “smarter” and more resilient
inter-dependent networked (cyber-physical) systems.

The objective of this workshop is to advance and promote theoretical
foundations for understanding the behaviors of and inter-dependencies in
modern networked systems -- especially, in critical (networked) physical
infrastructure systems -- and emerging cyber-physical systems. It also
seeks to explore new system architectures and innovative mechanisms for the
design and development of robust and resilient interdependent networked
systems. This workshop will foster an interdisciplinary research community
that discovers new knowledge for the design and operation of national
critical networked infrastructures as processes and services.

The Workshop on Inter-Dependent Networks (WIDN) welcomes contributions that
are mainly involved, but not limited to the following (non-exhaustive) list
of topics, relevant to its broader scope:

- Understand and design of interdependent critical infrastructures
- Vulnerability and resilience of interdependent networks
- Cascading failures in interdependent networks
- Multiplex and multi-layered networks
- Network representations
- Complexity and approximation of interdependent networks optimization
and control techniques
- Theoretical frameworks and multidisciplinary computational models of
interdependent networks
- Analytical prediction of complex behaviors
- Cyber-physical systems


- Full Paper Submission Deadline: *December 14, 2014*
- Review Deadline: January 24, 2015
- Author Notification: February 7, 2015
- Camera-ready paper due: February 27, 2015
- Workshop Date: April 27, 2015


We call for original and unpublished papers with no longer than 6 pages.
The manuscripts should be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format
(double-column, 10-pt font).

Submission via EDAS (WIDN 2015)

Selected papers will be published in a special issue of Computational
Social Networks journal and Journal of Combinatorial Optimization.
