ICS-CSR 2019 : 6th International Symposium for ICS & SCADA Cyber Security Research 2019
Call For Papers
The 6th 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 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.
Proceedings of the ICS-CSR are hosted by the British Computer Society (BCS) in their eWiC series. Proceedings are indexed in the ACM Digital Library, EBSCO, DBPL and Google Scholar.
This year's conference will take place on the 10th to 12th of September 2019 at University of Piraeus (Day 1) and the Ministry of Digital Policy, Telecommunications and Media (Days 2 and 3) in Athens, Greece.
As with previous editions, we will be inviting the best conference submissions to a special issue in EAI Transactions on Security and Safety. Papers will have to be significantly extended and will undergo an additional peer-review process before acceptance. The call for extended papers will be distributed at the conference.
ICS-CSR is welcoming contributions that have a direct application or relevance to security aspects of Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems (SCADA), Industrial Control Systems (ICS), Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Smart City, or Industry 4.0.
This list of topics 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.
