Call For Papers

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) integrate computing and communication capabilities with monitoring and control of entities in the physical world. These systems are usually composed of a set of networked agents, including sensors, actuators, control processing units, and communication devices. While some forms of CPS are already in use, the widespread growth of wireless embedded sensors and actuators is creating several new applications in areas such as medical devices, autonomous vehicles, and smart infrastructure, and is increasing the role that the information infrastructure plays in existing control systems such as in the process control industry or the power grid.

Many CPS applications are safety-critical: their failure can cause irreparable harm to the physical system under control, and to the people who depend, use or operate it. In particular, critical cyber-physical infrastructures such as electric power generation, transmission and distribution grids, oil and natural gas systems, water and waste-water treatment plants, and transportation networks play a fundamental and large-scale role in our society. Their disruption can have a significant impact on individuals, and nations at large. Securing these CPS infrastructures is, therefore, vitally important.

Similarly because many CPS systems collect sensor data non-intrusively, users of these systems are often unaware of their exposure. Therefore, in addition to security, CPS systems must be designed with privacy considerations.

To address these issues, we invite original research papers on the security and/or privacy of Cyber-Physical Systems. We seek submissions from multiple interdisciplinary backgrounds tackling security and privacy issues in CPS, including but not limited to:

mathematical foundations for secure CPS
control theoretic approaches to secure CPS
high assurance security architectures for CPS
security and resilience metrics for CPS
metrics and risk assessment approaches for CPS
privacy in CPS
network security for CPS
game theory applied to CPS security
security of embedded systems, IoT and real-time systems in the context of CPS
human factors and humans in the loop
understanding dependencies among security, reliability and safety in CPS
economics of security and privacy in CPS
intrusion detection in CPS
model-based security systems engineering
experimental insights from real-world CPS or CPS testbeds

CPS domains of interest include but are not limited to:

health care and medical devices
industrial control systems
SCADA systems
smart building environments
unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
autonomous vehicles
transportation systems and networks

Also of interest will be papers that can point the research community to new research directions, and those that can set research agendas and priorities in CPS security and privacy.

Submitted papers can be up to 12 pages including appendices and references. Submissions must use the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates (available at the ACM website) in double-column format with a font no smaller than 9 point. Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM Press and/or the ACM Digital Library.

Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented by one registered author. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk immediate rejection. For questions about these policies, please contact the chairs.
