The 10th International Conference on 
Critical Information Infrastructures Security (CRITIS 2015)

Berlin, Germany, October 5-7, 2015

Conference Outline:

CRITIS 2015 has four foci. Topic category 1, Resilience and protection 
of cyber-physical systems, covers advances in the classical CIIP sectors 
telecommunication, cyber systems and electricity infrastructures. Topic 
category 2 focuses on advances in C(I)IP policies and best practices in 
C(I)IP specifically from stakeholders' perspectives. In topic category 
3, general advances in C(I)IP, we are explicitly inviting contributions 
from additional infrastructure sectors like energy, transport, and smart 
built infrastructure) and cover also cross-sector CI(I)P aspects.

In 2013, the CRITIS series of conferences has started to foster 
contributions from young experts and researchers (“Young CRITIS”), 
and in 2014 this has been reinforced by the first edition of the CIPRNet 
Young CRITIS Award (CYCA). We will continue both activities at CRITIS 
2015, since our demanding multi-disciplinary field of research requires 
open-minded talents.

Topic category 1: Resilience and protection of cyber-physical systems

- Modelling and analysis of cyber-physical systems for monitoring and 
- Security, protection, resilience and survivability of complex 
  cyber-physical systems
- Impact and consequence analysis of C(I)I loss or reduction of quality 
  of service
- C(I)I dependency Modeling, Simulation, Analysis and Validation
- Cyber security in critical infrastructure systems
- Fault tolerant control for cyber-physical systems
- Security and protection of smart buildings

Topic category 2: C(I)IP policies and best practices in C(I)IP – 
stakeholders' perspective

- Risk management in C(I)IP
- The role of C(I)I in the implementation of the EU directive on 
  European Critical Infrastructures in EU Member States
- C(I)I exercises & contingency plans
- Advances in C(I)IP policies at national and cross-border levels
- C(I)IP R&D agenda at national and international levels
- Trust models in normal situations and during escalation
- Public-private partnership for critical infrastructure resilience
- Economics, investments and incentives of critical infrastructure 
- Defence of civilian C(I)I in conflicts with cyber elements
- Forensics and attribution in C(I)I

Topic category 3: Advances in C(I)IP

- Advanced decision support for mitigating C(I)I related emergencies
- C(I)IP for energy infrastructures (like oil and gas sector, renewable 
- C(I)IP for transport infrastructures (like railways, toll systems, 
  tunnel control systems, logistics centers, airports)
- Advances in cross-sector CI(I)P approaches
- Recent trends in cyber economy (clouds, quasi-monopolies, new payment 
  methods etc.) and implications for C(I)I and C(I)IP

Topic category 4: YOUNG CRITIS and CIPRNet Young CRITIS Award (CYCA)

- Topics of interest for category 4 include all topics mentioned under 
  topic categories 1 and 3.
