CyberICPS 2018 : 4th Workshop on the Security of Industrial Control Systems & of Cyber-Physical Systems (in conjunction with ESORICS 2018)
Call For Papers
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). These systems also include the emerging trend of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) that will be the central part of the fourth industrial revolution. 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:
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
Malware and cyber weapons
Intrusion detection and visualisation
Defense in depth
Monitoring and real time supervision
Cyber security engineering
Secure communication protocols
Formal models for ICS/CPS security
Incident Response and Digital Forensics for ICS/CPS
Forensics in ICS
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 are to be made to the submission web site. 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 June the 10th, 2018 (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.
