5th Workshop on the Security of
Industrial Control Systems and of Cyber-Physical Systems
(CyberICPS 2019)
Luxembourg, Luxembourg, September 23-27, 2019

CyberICPS is the result of the merging of the CyberICS and WOS-CPS 
workshops that were held for the first time in conjunction with ESORICS 

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, to plant control 
systems, engineering workstations, substation equipment, programmable 
logic controllers (PLCs), and other Industrial Control Systems (ICS). 
These systems also include the emerging trend of Industrial Internet of 
Things (IIoT) that will be the central part of the fourth industrial 

As ICS and CPS proliferate, and increasingly interact with us and affect 
our life, their security becomes of paramount importance. CyberICPS 
intends to bring together researchers, engineers and governmental actors 
with an interest in the security of ICS and CPS in the context of their 
increasing exposure to cyber-space, by offering a forum for discussion 
on all issues related to their cyber security.
CyberICPS invites submissions that present innovative ideas, proof of 
concepts, use cases, and results from a variety of topics relevant to 
ICS and CPS, including (but not limited to) the following ones:

- Security governance
   - Security policies
   - Risk analysis and management
   - Vulnerability assessment and metrics
   - Awareness, training and simulation
   - ICS/CPS security standards
   - Privacy and Anonymity in ICS/CPS

- System and network security
   - Threat modeling
   - Security architectures
   - Access control
   - Malware and cyber weapons
   - Intrusion detection and visualisation
   - Defense in depth
   - Monitoring and real time supervision
   - Applied cryptography
   - Perimeter security
   - Safety-security interactions
   - Cyber security engineering
   - Secure communication protocols
   - Formal models for ICS/CPS security
   - Hardware Security
   - Resilient ICS/CPS
   - Application Security
   - Secure Firmware

-Incident Response and Digital Forensics for ICS/CPS
   - Forensics in ICS
   - Incident Response
   - Accountability

- Case studies
   - Case studies in the energy, utility, chemical, transportation, 
manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure sectors.


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. Submissions should be at most 16 pages 
long, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and should 
follow the LNCS style. Submissions are to be made to the submission web 
site. Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these 
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers 
must be received by the submission deadline listed below (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.
