1st International Workshop on Cybersecurity of Industrial Control Systems 

co-located with ESORICS 2015
September 21-22, 2015
Vienna, Austria
Website : http://conferences.telecom-bretagne.eu/cyberics/2015/


The First Cyber ICS workshop aims to address the increasing number of
cyber threats that operators of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) have
to face around the world. The workshop will bring together
researchers, engineers and governmental actors with an interest in the
security of industrial control systems in the context of their
increasing exposure to cyber-space.

The workshop will focus on topics covering ICSs, including cyber
protection and cyber defense of SCADA systems, plant control systems,
engineering workstations, substation equipment, programmable logic
controllers (PLCs), and other industrial control system.


The Cyber ICS workshop seeks submissions that present innovative
ideas, proof of concepts, use cases, and results from a variety of
topics, including (but not limited to) the following ones:

ICS Governance

Security policies
Risk analysis and management
Vulnerability assessment and metrics
Awareness, training and simulation
New ICS security standards  / updates in existing standards
ICS System and Network Security

Security architectures
Access control in ICS systems
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 security
ICS Hardware Security

Resilient Systems
Application Security
Secure Firmware
ICS Response and Forensics

Forensics in ICS
Incident Response
Digital Laws
Case Studies

The use cases of interests are broad, ranging from the energy,
utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial
and critical infrastructure organizations.

The above topic list is not meant to be exhaustive. However, papers
without a clear application to ICS security will be considered out of
scope and may be rejected without full review.


Papers should be at most 15 pages (using 11-point font), excluding the
bibliography and well-marked appendices. Accepted papers should be
presented at the Workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper
must register to the workshop, by the early date indicated by the
organizers, and present the paper. Authors must submit their papers by
the deadline indicated below, using the EasyChair web site (use the
link : https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cyberics2015).


Proceedings are planned to be published by Springer in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series in conjunction with the DPM
and QASA workshops. The submitted paper (in PDF format) should follow
the template indicated by Springer (see
