NICS participates and collaborates in the organization of the 10th International Conference on Critical Information Infrastructures Security (CRITIS 2015) in Berlin, Germany, October 5–7, 2015.
In 2015, the International Conference on Critical Information Infrastructures Security faces its tenth anniversary. CRITIS 2015 continues the tradition of presenting innovative research and exploring new challenges in the field of critical (information) infrastructures protection (C(I)IP) and fostering the dialogue with stakeholders. CRITIS 2015 aims at bringing together researchers and professionals from academia, industry and governmental organisations working in the field of the security of critical (information) infrastructure systems.
As in previous years, invited speakers and special events 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.
CRITIS 2015 has four foci. Topic category 1, Resilience and protection of cyber-physical systems, covers advances in the classical CIIP sectors telecommunication, cyber systems and electricity infrastructures. Topic category 2 focuses on advances in C(I)IP policies and best practices in C(I)IP specifically from stakeholders’ perspectives. In topic category 3, general advances in C(I)IP, we are explicitly inviting contributions from additional infrastructure sectors like energy, transport, and smart built infrastructure) and cover also cross-sector CI(I)P aspects. In 2013, the CRITIS series of conferences has started to fostercontributions from young experts and researchers (“Young CRITIS”), and in 2014 this has been reinforced by the first edition of the CIPRNet Young CRITIS Award (CYCA). As a fourth focus, we will continue both activities at CRITIS 2015, since our demanding multi-disciplinary field of research requires open-minded talents.
We are looking forward to your contributions to CRITIS 2015 and hope to see you in Berlin in October 2015!
