CyberICPS 2017 (in conjunction with ESORICS 2017):
3rd Workshop on The Security of Industrial Control Systems & of Cyber-Physical Systems
Oslo, Norway — September 15, 2017


CyberICPS brings together researchers, engineers and governmental actors with an interest in the security of Industrial Control Systems and Cyber Physical Systems in the context of their increasing exposure to cyber-space, by offering a forum for discussion on all issues related to their cyber security. The workshop was held for the first time in conjunction with ESORICS 2015 and has attracted a wide international audience from both the academic and industrial communities.

The 3rd Workshop on The Security of Industrial Control Systems & of Cyber-Physical Systems (CyberICPS 2017) will be held in Oslo, Norway, on September 15, 2017.

Early Registration for all ESORICS Workshops 2017 and for ESORICS itself is open, but will end soon. Early bird registration deadline is ***August, 15th 2017***

Registration rates:

If an invitation letter is needed (e.g. VISA) the letter will be provided after the registration. To do this, it is necessary to send an email to the organizing committee at:

3rd Workshop on the Security of Industrial Control Systems and
of Cyber-Physical Systems (CyberICPS 2017)
in conjunction with ESORICS 2017

Oslo, Norway, September 11-15, 2017

*** Submission Deadline Extended to June 30th - Hard Deadline ***

CyberICPS is the result of the merging of the CyberICS and WOS-CPS workshops that were held for the first time in conjunction with ESORICS 2015.

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems that interact with the physical environment, whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by information and communication technologies. These systems exist everywhere around us, and range in size, complexity and criticality, from embedded systems used in smart vehicles, to SCADA systems in smart grids to control systems in water distribution systems, to smart transportation systems, to plant control systems, engineering workstations, substation equipment, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and other Industrial Control Systems (ICS).

As ICS and CPS proliferate, and increasingly interact with us and affect our life, their security becomes of paramount importance. CyberICPS intends to bring together researchers, engineers and governmental actors with an interest in the security of ICS and CPS in the context of their increasing exposure to cyber-space, by offering a forum for discussion on all issues related to their cyber security.

CyberICPS invites submissions that present innovative ideas, proof of concepts, use cases, and results from a variety of topics relevant to ICS and CPS, including (but not limited to) the following ones:

Security governance
* Security policies
* Risk analysis and management
* Vulnerability assessment and metrics
* Awareness, training and simulation
* ICS/CPS security standards
* Privacy and Anonymity in ICS/CPS

System and network security
* Threat modeling
* Security architectures
* Access control
* Malware and cyber weapons
* Intrusion detection and visualisation
* Defense in depth
* Monitoring and real time supervision
* Applied cryptography
* Perimeter security
* Safety-security interactions
* Cyber security engineering
* Secure communication protocols
* Formal models for ICS/CPS security
* Hardware Security
* Resilient ICS/CPS
* Application Security
* Secure Firmware

Incident Response and Digital Forensics for ICS/CPS
* Forensics in ICS
* Incident Response
* Accountability

Case Studies
* Case studies in the energy, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure sectors.


Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that have been simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Submissions should be at most 16 pages long, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and should follow the LNCS style ( Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of July the 9th, 2017 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. Pre-proceedings will be made available at the workshop. All accepted papers will be published as joint post-proceedings by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
