Call for Submissions: The World Congress on Industrial Control Systems Security (WCICSS-2016)!

The World Congress on Industrial Control Systems Security (WCICSS-2016)
Venue: Heathrow Windsor Marriott Hotel
December 12-14, 2016
London, UK
The WCICSS-2016 is a meeting point for professionals and researchers, IT security professionals, managers, developers, educators, vendors and service providers who are involved in development, integration, assessment, implementation, and operation of industrial cybersecurity technologies. Therefore, the conference will provide opportunities to discuss both the current status and emerging trends in protection of industrial control systems. The aim of WCICSS is to provide an opportunity for academicians and professionals from various educational fields with cross-disciplinary interests to bridge the knowledge gap, promote research esteem and the evolution of pedagogy. The WCICSS-2016 invites research papers that encompass conceptual analysis, design implementation and performance evaluation.
