1st Workshop on the Security of Cyber Physical Systems

Vienna, Austria, September 21-25, 2015

in conjunction with ESORICS 2015

[Call for Papers TXT]

The 1st Workshop on the Security of Cyber-Physical Systems (WOS-CPS 2015) will be held in Vienna, Austria, in September 2015. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems that interact with the physical environment, whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by information and communication technologies.

These systems exist everywhere around us, and range in size, complexity and criticality, from embedded systems used in smart vehicles, to SCADA systems in smart grids to control systems in water distribution systems, to smart transportation systems etc. As CPS proliferate, and increasingly interact with us and affect our life, their security becomes of paramount importance.

WOS-CPS intends to offer a forum for scientific and engineering discussion on all issues related to the security of CPS.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Security of embedded systems
  • Security of critical infrastructures
  • SCADA systems security
  • Security in the smart grid
  • Security in transportation systems
  • Risk analysis for CPS
  • Intrusion detection for CPS
  • Threat modeling in CPS
  • Advanced Persistent Threats in CPS
  • Security design for CPS
  • Security in legacy CPS
  • Privacy in CPS
  • Security of the Internet of Things
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that have been simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. All submissions should be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names or affiliations, or obvious citations). Submissions should be at most 16 pages long, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and should follow the LNCS style (http://www.springeronline.com/lncs). Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=woscps2015. Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of June the 28th, 2015 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. Pre-proceedings will be made available at the workshop. Post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
