2021 IEEE International Conference on Cyber Security and Resilience
(IEEE CSR 2021)
Rhodes, Greece (changed to Virtual ) | July 26-28, 2021



The IEEE International Conference on Cyber Security and Resilience
(IEEE CSR) is an annual event sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man, and
Cybernetics (SMC) Society.

The technological and industrial revolution brought by complex
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) comes with new threats and cyber-attacks
that exploit their inherent complexity and heterogeneity. Systems
under attack, should exhibit cyber resilience, i.e. a mixture of
strategies, methods, and techniques to support complex CPS adaptive
capacity during cyber-attacks. The conference focuses on theoretical
and practical aspects of the security, privacy, trust, and resilience
of networks, systems, and services as well as novel ways for dealing
with their vulnerabilities and mitigating sophisticated cyber-attacks.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished
contributions from a broad range of topics, which include but are not
limited to the following:

Cyber security
 - DLT/smart contract security
 - Cyber-security and AI
 - Cyber-threat intelligence
 - Malicious cryptography
 - Moving target defense
 - Network intrusion detection
 - Post-quantum security
 - Privacy and data protection

Cyber resilience
 - AI for resilience management
 - Attack resilient architectures
 - Cyber-range platforms
 - Cyber-risk forecasting
 - Cyber-security training
 - Dynamic risk management
 - Gamification in security
 - SDN security

Complex CPS security
 - Automotive security
 - Critical infrastructure security
 - ICS security
 - Industrial IoT security
 - IoT and cloud forensics
 - Smart cities security
 - Smart grid security
 - Virtualization security

The complete list of topics can be found at the PDF version of the CFP: https://www.ieee-csr.org/IEEE_CSR_CFP.pdf <https://www.ieee-csr.org/IEEE_CSR_CFP.pdf> 

Paper submission deadline: February 15, 2021
Authors' notification: April 12, 2021
Camera-ready submission: May 10, 2021
Early registration deadline: May 31, 2021

The IEEE CSR 2021 conference will accept high-quality regular research
papers, Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) papers, and industrial
papers. IEEE CSR 2021 will also host workshops specializing into the
conference's areas or focusing on high-quality applied research and
innovation results that are obtained from cyber-security and
resilience projects.

Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 6 pages (plus 2 extra pages,
being subject to overlength page charges) and should be of sufficient
detail to be evaluated by expert reviewers in the field. A
double-blind review process will be employed for submitted papers,
which should not reveal the authors' identities. The conference
(including workshops) proceedings will be published by IEEE and will
be included in IEEE Xplore. At least one author of each accepted paper
will have to pay the full registration fee and present the paper at
the conference in order to be included in the IEEE proceedings.

The authors of selected accepted papers will be invited to submit an
extended version to special issues of international journals. Detailed
information about the paper submission and guidelines to authors will
be posted on the IEEE CSR 2021 conference website
https://www.ieee-csr.org <https://www.ieee-csr.org/>.
