Submission Deadline Apr 7, 2020
Notification Due May 3, 2020
Final Version Due May 8, 2020

Call For Papers

The 5th IEEE International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security (CPS-Sec) will be held in conjunction with IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) 2020 29 June - 1 July 2020 in Avignon, France
The scientific evolution of digital, analog, and physical devices and their interactions with the networked systems created the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Today, the boundary between cyber and physical systems is blurring. CPS covers a multitude of smart devices, ranging from smartphones and tablets to devices and applications which exist in industrial, transportation, medical, home security, building automation, emergency management, power, and many other systems. These all enable the vision of CPS by allowing human beings to interact with the physical world and serve critical functions in our lives. Given the popularity of the CPS applications, securing them against malicious activities is of utmost importance. Otherwise, malfunctioning and insecure CPS devices and applications can cause enormous damage to individuals, businesses, and nations.

Therefore, the International Workshop on CyberPhysical Systems Security (CPS-Sec) seeks novel submissions describing practical and theoretical solutions to the cyber security challenges facing CPS. Submissions may represent any application area for CPS. Hence, papers that are pertinent to the security of embedded systems, Internet of Things (IoT), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Systems, Smart-Grids, Critical Infrastructure Networks, Transportation Systems, and Medical Devices are all welcome. Example topics of interest are given below, but are not limited to:

- Secure CPS architectures
- Authentication mechanisms for CPS
- Access control for CPS
- Key management in CPS
- Data security and privacy for CPS
- Forensics for CPS
- Intrusion detection for CPS
- Trusted-computing in CPS
- Energy-efficient and secure CPS
- Availability, recovery, and auditing for CPS
- Distributed secure solutions for CPS
- Threat models for CPS
- Physical layer security for CPS
- Security on heterogeneous CPS
- Secure protocol design in CPS
- Vulnerability analysis of CPS
- Anonymization in CPS
- Security of CPS in automotive systems
- Security of CPS in aerospace systems
- Security of embedded systems
- Security of CPS in medical devices/systems
- Security of CPS in civil engineering systems/devices
- Security of industrial control systems
- Security of Internet-of-Things
