Eighth Industrial Control System Security Workshop 
will be held on 
Tuesday, December 6, 2022, 
in conjunction with the Annual Computer Security
Applications Conference (ACSAC). 
ACSAC will be held at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin, Texas. *

 Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial
control systems (ICS) monitor and control a wide range of industrial
and infrastructure processes such as water treatment, power generation
and transmission, oil and gas refining, and steel
manufacturing. Furthermore, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
is rapidly expanding the interconnectivity of ICS environments and
introducing many new threats.  These environments have been identified
as a key target of more generic threats (ransomware), along with more
recent tailored nation-state threats targeting safety instrumented
systems (TRISIS).

 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
techniques to improve the security-critical control systems in the
face of emerging threats. Papers of interest including (but not
limited to) the following subject categories are solicited:

 - IIoT security
 - Intrusion detection and prevention
 - Emerging threats to ICS
 - Vulnerability analysis and risk management
 - Digital forensics for ICS/PLCs
 - ICS-oriented cybersecurity education
 - Performance evaluation of security methods and tools in control systems
 - Innovative ICS/SCADA testbed designs
 - Supply chain vulnerabilities and protections
