Call for Papers
1st International Symposium for
Industrial Control System & SCADA Cyber Security Research (ICS-CSR)
16 - 18 September 2013
De Montfort University, Leicester, UK

The 1st International Symposium for ICS & SCADA Cyber Security brings
together researchers with an interest in the security of industrial
control systems in the light of their increasing exposure to cyber-
space. The topics of interests are broad, ranging from security for
hardware/firmware used in industrial control systems, to system
aspects of ICS such as secure architectures and vulnerability
screening to the human aspects of cyber security such as behaviour
modelling and training. ICS-CSR is a research conference, sponsored by
EADS Cassidian Cyber and EADS Innovation Works, and aimed at high
quality academic research in any of the specified themes and topics of
interest. We welcome original contributions that present innovative
ideas, proof of concepts, use cases, and results from a variety of
domains with a wish to enhance the security of infrastructure.

Research Themes & Topics of Interest:

SCADA Hardware Security Solutions
- Encryption, Authentication, Availability Assurance
- Resilient Systems
- Application security
- Secure Firmware
- Timing Vulnerabilities in RT-Control Systems
- Security Implications of Feature Interactions
SCADA System Security
- Security architectures
- Safety-Security Interactions
- Intrusion detection
- Malware Analysis
- Cyber Security Engineering
- Vulnerability
- Secure Communication Protocols
- Metrics
- Anonymity
- Language-based security
- Network security
SCADA Forensics
- Hardware Forensics
- Incidence Response
- Live Forensics
- Accountability
Human Factors Security
- Awareness & Training
- Behavioural Modelling
- Threat Profiling

This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; ICS-CSR is interested
in all aspects of computer security relating to ICS. Papers without a
clear application to SCADA, Embedded Systems, or Industrial Control,
however, will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without
full review.

Important Dates (All deadlines are 23:59 CET)

Paper Submission due: 19 April 2013
Acceptance notification: 01 July 2013
Revised papers due: 21 July 2013

Instructions for Paper Submission

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in
English, must not exceed 10 pages, including tables, figures,
references and appendixes and follow the EWIC formatting guidelines: Accepted papers will be published
in conference proceedings and indexed in the ACM digital library.

All papers will be peer reviewed by members of the Programme
Committee. Papers will be selected based on their originality,
timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be
considered for publication in a special issue. The program committee
will select a Best Paper Award winner for this conference. Submission
of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper
be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the
conference to present the work.

Submit your paper via EasyChair:

Instructions for Short Positional Paper Submission

We welcome the submission of short positional papers for poster
presentation during the conference. Positional papers must be clearly
presented in English, must not exceed 4 pages, including tables,
figures, references and appendixes and follow the EWIC formatting
guidelines: Accepted papers will
be eligible for inclusion for presentation as a poster during the
conference and selected papers will be included as an annex in the
published conference proceedings.

Submit your short positional paper via EasyChair:
and use the prefix "POSITIONAL:" in the registration title.
