Call For Papers

Cyber-physical systems are becoming vital to modernizing the national critical infrastructure (CI) systems. A smart grid is an energy transmission and distribution network enhanced through digital control, monitoring, and telecommunications capabilities. It provides a real-time, two-way flow of energy and information to all stakeholders in the electricity chain, from the generation plant to the commercial, industrial, and residential end user. Each smart grid subsystem and its associated assets require specific security functions and solutions. For example, the solution to secure a substation is not the same as the solution to secure demand response and home energy management systems. Usual cyber security technologies and best practices—such as antivirus, firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, network security design, defense in depth, and system hardening—are necessary to protect the smart grid. However, history showed they are only part of the solution. Owing to the rapid increase of sophisticated cyber threats with exponentially destructive effects advanced cyber security technologies must be developed. The title of this special issue of Transactions on Industrial Networks and Intelligent Systems is therefore coined concisely as “Special Issue on CI & Smart Grid Cyber Security”.
Topics of Interest: This special issue focuses on innovative methods and techniques in order to address unique security issues relating to CI and smart grids. Original submissions reflecting latest research observation and achievement in the following areas are invited:

• Hardware Security Solutions • Incident response
• Real-time threat intelligence • Situation Awareness
• Security information and event management (SIEM) systems • Machine Learning Techniques
• Safety-Security Interactions • System Vulnerabilities
• Cyber Security Engineering • Human Awareness & Training
• Intrusion Detection • Trust and privacy
• Malware Analysis • Behavioral Modeling
• Secure Communication Protocols • Malware analysis
• Network security and protocols • Hardware enforced virtualization

HOW TO SUBMIT

Please see the instructions for authors on the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Industrial Networks and Intelligent Systems, http://eai.eu/transaction/industrial-networks-and-intelligent-systems.

When the paper is ready for submission, authors should go to http://escripts.eai.eu/manage/lists, select “Industrial Networks and Intelligent Systems”, find their special issue and upload their manuscript.
