CFP: Cyber-Physical System SECurity (CPS-SEC) Workshop 2019

Recently, I’ve accepted the invitation to join the IEEE CPS-SEC workshop TPC. CPS-SEC is co-located with the IEEE CNS conference . From the official website:

The IEEE International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security (CPS-Sec) will be held in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) 2019 in Washington, D.C., USA, on 10-12 June, 2019.

Nowadays, the correct functioning of information systems represents a fundamental milestone for the well-being of modern economies and societies. The scientific evolution of digital, analog, and physical components with the interactions between networks created the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Even though the benefits of the cyber and physical world interactions are noticeable, new security challenges have arisen: typical vulnerabilities from the cyber domain emerged in CPS. Cyber-attacks over CPS pose different security challenges. In particular, classic Information Technology (IT) cyber security tools are considered partially or totally ineffective in CPS scenarios because complex cyber-physical attacks could avoid security detection methodologies developed specifically for the IT world. The prevention, detection, and mitigation of cyber-attacks encompass both the physical and the cyber layers of a system: to this end, approaches to securing CPS consider techniques adopted in the physical domain and in the cyber space.

Following the success of the previous editions, the IEEE International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security 2019 (CPS-Sec 2019) aims to represent a forum for researchers and practitioners from industry and academia interested in the areas of CPS security. CPS-Sec 2019 seeks novel submissions describing practical and theoretical solutions to the cyber-physical security challenges. A submission may represent any CPS domain, including embedded systems, Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), SCADA Systems, Smart-Grid Systems, Critical Infrastructure, Automotive and Transportation Systems, Medical applications.

  • Important dates:
    • Submission Deadline: 15 March, 2019 (extended)
    • Notification of Acceptance: 26 March, 2019
    • Camera-Ready: 2 April, 2019
