You may wish to consider CyberICPS 2020
( as a possible publication
venue for your research work. The deadline for paper submission is
July 3, 2020.

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

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 revolution.

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


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

Submission Details 
The conference proceedings will be published
in the LNCS series. Springer have committed to publishing LNCS
proceedings even in the event that conferences are cancelled, held
virtually, or postponed. 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. Authors should consult
Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates,
either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their
papers. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are available in
Overleaf. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their
papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each accepted paper,
acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete
and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing
the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the
paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to
the authorship of the papers cannot be made 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.

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our
priority. After evaluating the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the
decision has been made to run ESORICS 2020 and the associated
workshops as an all-digital conference experience, and it will now be
an online event. Therefore, CyberICPS 2020, like ESORICS 2020, will
take place as entirely virtual. The conference and workshop dates
remain the same: September 14-18, 2020.
