ICSS 2015
Industrial Control System Security (ICSS) Workshop, 
Held in conjunction with 
31st Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC), 
Los Angeles, California, 
December 7-11, 2015 
(Submissions due 21 September 2015) 

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial
control systems monitor and control a wide range of industrial and
infrastructure processes such as water treatment, power generation and
transmission, oil and gas refining and steal manufacturing. Such
systems are usually built using a variety of commodity computer and
networking components, and are becoming increasingly interconnected
with corporate and other Internet-visible networks. As a result, they
face significant threats from internal and external actors. For
example, Stuxnet malware was specifically written to attack SCADA
systems that alone caused multi-million dollars damages in 2010.

The critical requirement for high availability in SCADA and industrial
control systems, along with the use of resource constrained computing
devices, legacy operating systems and proprietary software
applications limits the applicability of traditional information
security solutions. The goal of this workshop is to explore new
security techniques that are applicable in the control systems
context. Papers of interest including (but not limited to) the
following subject categories are solicited:

Intrusion detection and prevention
Vulnerability analysis of control systems protocols
Digital forensics
Application security
Performance impact of security methods and tools in control systems

Submissions should be 5-8 pages, using the double-column ACM
proceedings format. Submission website:
