In 2018, the International Conference on Critical Information Infrastructures Security will mark its 13th anniversary. CRITIS 2018 continues the tradition of presenting innovative research and exploring new challenges in the field of critical (information) infrastructures protection (C(I)IP), resilience and fostering the dialogue with stakeholders.
Following the successful organisation of CRITIS 2016 at UIC HQ, and the support given to CRITIS 2017 (Lucca, Italy), UIC ensures continuity with the previous editions by supporting the scientific programme of CRITIS 2018.
CRITIS 2018 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.
As in previous years, invited speakers will complement a programme of original research contributions. The conference invites the different research communities and disciplines involved in the C(I)IP space, and encourages discussions and multi-disciplinary approaches to relevant C(I)IP problems.
The Project’s Dissemination Session will be an opportunity of dissemination for ongoing European, multinational, and national projects.
Call for papers
CRITIS 2018 covers three thematic foci. Paper submission is encouraged but not limited to the following topics: Topic 1 “Technologies: Innovative responses for the protection of cyber-physical systems”; Topic 2 “Advances in C(I)IP organisation: Policies, good practices and lessons learned”; Topic 3 “Advances in Human Factors, decision support, and cross-sector CI(I)P approaches – focus on end-users”.
Post-proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Accepted full papers will be included in full length in the post-proceedings.
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). Research papers submitted to compete for the Young CRITIS Award shall cover one or more of the subjects mentioned above.
