Share this article

14th International Conference on Critical Information Infrastructures Security, will be held in Linköping, Sweden, from 23 – 25 September, and continues the tradition of bringing to the fore innovative research in the field of critical (information) infrastructures protection (C(I)IP), exploring ideas that address challenges to resilience and societal safety, and fostering the dialogue with stakeholders.

CRITIS 2019 aims at bringing together researchers, professionals from academia, critical (information) infrastructure operators, industry, defence sector and governmental organisations working in the field of the security of critical (information) infrastructure systems. Moreover, CRITIS aims to encourage and inspire early stage and open-minded researchers in this demanding multi-disciplinary field of research. Outstanding research performance demonstrated by young researchers may compete for the Young CRITIS Award (YCA).

The Project’s Dissemination Session will be an opportunity of dissemination for ongoing European, multinational, and national projects, to share the experiences among scientist and experts working on different projects in the C(I)IP domain.

Following the success of CRITIS 2016 in Paris organised by the UIC Security Division, and to ensure continuity with the previous editions, Grigore Havârneanu continues to be part of the scientific committee and the steering board of CRITIS 2019.

Conference themes
CRITIS 2019 has a special focus on testbeds for research and training with respect to security in critical infrastructures, encouraging participants from Europe, US and Asia to present the state-of-the-art in development of such physical and virtual environments.

The conference will also be a forum to discuss current and future energy infrastructures with the participation of energy infrastructure operators and stakeholders, as well as the infrastructures for water management systems, traffic management and interdependencies therein. Topics for the conference papers include (but are not limited to): (1) Protection of cyber-physical systems; (2): Advances in C(I)IP organisation, management and legal aspects; (3) Emergencies and C(I)IP protection, national and cross-border; and (4) Disruptive technologies for C(I)IP.
