Call for Papers - CERTS 2016
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st Workshop on
Security and Dependability of Critical Embedded Real-Time Systems

at the IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium
Porto, Portugal, 29th November, 2016

http://certs2016.uni.lu

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Sept. 25 (AOE)

CALL FOR PAPERS

At their heart, many critical systems and system infrastructures are
composed of real-time and embedded systems (RTES). For example, RTES
control our power grids, maintain our smart homes, steer our vehicles
or they host the software in road-side units that allow our vehicles
to drive more safely and more efficiently. For sure, they will open
the way to even more challenging applications, such as in autonomous
and cooperating vehicles, terrestrial or aerial.

However, most of these RTES are distributed or networked, which makes
them vulnerable both to accidental faults and targeted attacks and
advanced and persistent threats. Worse, compromise of a few nodes may
bring down the entire system, in particular if attacks persist.

The grand challenges brought in by these scenarios include ensuring
continuous unmaintained operation under faults and attacks. Systems
may possibly utilize easier to upgrade computation resources in mobile
phones or road side units whose trustworthiness needs to be
established while the RTES approaches these units. And while attackers
may try to compromise the RTES’ functionality or timing, we seek to
protect the integrity and timeliness of systems and the privacy of
their users. Mastering these challenges requires the expertise of
several research areas, and so, the goal of this workshop is to bring
together researchers and engineers from the security and
dependability, distributed systems and real-time communities, in order
to discuss and promote new and exciting research ideas and
initiatives, and to identify and discuss the challenges that lie ahead
for such critical applications.

CERTS’16 strives for an inclusive and diverse program and solicits
short and long technical papers on open problems, experiments, case
studies, new ideas, or future challenges. See
http://certs2016.uni.lu for a detailed description of contribution
formats.

SCOPE AND TOPICS OF INTEREST

CERTS’16 is open to all topics at the intersection of security and
dependability of embedded and real-time systems, with an emphasis on
criticality and distribution. As such, areas of interest include but
are not limited to the following topics:

* Security and dependability of cyber-physical and other real-time and
embedded systems,
* Vulnerabilities and protective measures of CPS infrastructure,
* Fault and intrusion tolerant distributed real-time systems,
* Confidentiality and privacy in real-time and embedded systems, and
* System architectures encompassing combinations of distribution,
security, dependability and timeliness.

Contribution formats include technical presentations of systems,
system models and architectures, methods, tools, protocols and
infrastructures to improve the dependability and security of real-time
systems but also open problems and future challenges papers and
experimental papers including experience reports and negative results.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SUBMISSION FORMATS

* Short Work-in-Progress Paper: up to two pages, standard IEEE format
* Full Paper: up to six pages, standard IEEE format

Adherence to the format is strict, but we tolerate moderately
exceeding the page limit (by up to two pages) if the content so
justifies. Visit http://certs2016.uni.lu for further details.
