In the last years we observed dramatic changes in technological infrastructures that found the base of developed countries. For a lot of economical, social, technological and political reasons that are generally referred to as globalisation and liberalisation, they become more and more interoperable, integrated and interdependent. These phenomena and the actual socio-political instability, pose new and very hard challenges for the management and protection of these systems and, more specifically, imposes the development of innovative strategies to guarantee their service continuity. The abundance of services of modern infrastructures is no more thinkable without ICT that therefore has become a key-resource. At the same time ICT is considered as one of the most vulnerable elements of the whole system.
CRITIS’08 wants to bring together experts from science, industry and public authorities involved in management, supervision and protection of critical infrastructures to provide an interdisciplinary and multi-faceted view about third millennium security strategies for Critical Information Infrastructures.
Authors are solicited to contribute to the workshop by submitting articles that illustrate research results, R&D projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in the following (non-exclusive) areas of Critical Information Infrastructures
Modelling and Simulation of Critical Infrastructures
Interdependency Modelling and Analysis
Network and Organizational Vulnerability Analysis
Threats and Attack Modelling
SCADA/DCS and Control System Security
Self-healing, Self-protection, Self-management Architectures
Situation Awareness and Response Optimisation
CIIP Policy and Cross-Border Issue
R&D Agenda, Benchmarking and Survey
Instructions for paper submission
All submissions will be subjected to a thorough blind review by at least three reviewers. Papers should be up to 12 pages in English, including bibliography and well-marked appendices. As in the case of CRITIS’07, post-proceedings are planned to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Pre-proceedings will appear at the time of the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register with the workshop and present the paper at oral or poster sessions. To submit a paper, select the Paper Submission option in the menu and note the following. The submitted paper (in PDF or PostScript format), which should follow the template indicated by Springer, must start with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. However, it should be anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, nor obvious references.
Revised and/or extended versions of outstanding papers from the conference will be published, on the base of their arguments, in a special issue of the International Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection (Elsevier) or in a special issue of the International Journal of System of Systems Engineering (Inderscience).
