CACOE 2020 – CALL FOR PAPERS
Workshop on Cyber Range Technologies and Applications (CACOE)
June 15, 2020

In conjunction with the 5th IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy
June 16-18, 2020, Genova, Italy

WWW: https://cacoe.ait.ac.at/
======================================================================

The Cyber Range Technologies and Applications (CACOE) workshop aims to bring together researchers advancing, developing and maintaining cyber ranges (e.g., cyber-physical labs, clouds and other virtual platforms) supporting cyber security training, tests and exercises. Cyber ranges have emerged as a response to the need of high-fidelity environments for testing, training, exercising capabilities related to cyber security. They are typically based on virtualization technology and are used to set up complex computer networks, simulate events, and observe phenomena in a controlled environment. However, to set up realistic tests, training or exercises in a cyber range is often difficult, expensive and error prone. It can be seen as system administration on steroids, where a few range engineers are to rapidly build and manage networks of the size that it typically takes a whole IT department to manage. There are many issues related to technical support tools (e.g. deployment of virtual machines) that are yet to be solved and many management issues (e.g. of event data management) that are to be solved. Furthermore, the application of cyber ranges to tests, training, and exercises is relatively new. Methodologies for constructing large events, standards for experiments, and the utility of cyber ranges to different applications is largely unknown.

AIM & SCOPE
============
The aim of the workshop is to exchange and discuss technologies and infrastructures required to simulate real systems with cyber incidents (e.g., simulation of benign or malicious users, evaluation frameworks, capability measurement). This includes experiences from using such technologies, e.g. for exercises and tests. The workshop will not focus on product presentations, feature presentations nor marketing of various technical infrastructures for cyber security training and exercises.

We invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in security, systems engineering, situational awareness and related areas to submit their original papers to this workshop. Case studies (successful or not) related to cyber ranges are also encouraged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Design of large-scale exercises
Design of experiments
Analysis/reviews/tests of tools and components for building large technical infrastructures
Automated machine configuration and deployment
Event and scenario management
Simulation of benign or malicious users
Event monitoring and evaluation
Data management
Event operating environments and scenarios modelling
Metrics and maturity levels
Measurements of training effects and capabilities
Applications to test cyber security properties
Human factors in training and exercises
Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions
Security and privacy challenges
Simulation of tools and components from various systems (e.g., industrial control systems, cyber-physical systems, legacy systems, etc.)

IMPORTANT DATES
================
Papers submission deadline: February 28, 2020
Notification date: April 2, 2020
Camera-ready submission: April 22, 2020
Workshop: June 15, 2020

For further details, please see the workshop website https://cacoe.ait.ac.at/

SUBMISSON INSTRUCTIONS
=======================
Papers must not exceed 10 pages total (including the references and appendices). Papers must be typeset in LaTeX in A4 format (not “US Letter”) using the IEEE conference proceeding template we supply eurosp-2020-template.zip. We suggest you first compile the supplied LaTeX source as is, checking that you obtain the same PDF as the one supplied, and then write your paper into the LaTeX template, replacing the boilerplate text. Please do not use other IEEE templates. Failure to adhere to the page limit and formatting requirements can be grounds for rejection. For further details and submission instructions, please see the workshop website https://cacoe.ait.ac.at/
