2nd International Workshop on Safety & Security aSSurance for Critical
Infrastructures Protection
Paris, France - 29th April 2017

Co-located with IEEE EuroS&P: 2nd European Symposium on Security and
Privacy (April 26-28, 2017)
Web: http://www.dimat.unina2.it/marrone/s4cip17.html

Modern society heavily relies on large, heterogeneous and complex
software-intensive systems to support all kinds of daily activities.
Services such as urban transportation, logistics, health-care, data
communication, railway, aerospace, and power distribution, to name a few,
are becoming more and more dependent on the availability of such
infrastructures. Any discontinuity of service may lead to serious problems,
from severe financial losses to fatalities or injuries; the causes have
different natures, either human errors, unexpected acts of nature, or
intentional attacks like sabotage. Safety and security (S&S) assessments in
critical infrastructures measure how these disruptions are handled and what
is the impact suffered by the critical infrastructure under stress. These
assessments are normally performed using analytical or simulation-based
techniques often addressing one single specific aspect at a time rather
than studying these infrastructures in a holistic manner.

# Workshop topics

This workshop aims at providing a forum for people from academia and
industry to communicate their latest results on theoretical advances,
industrial case studies, practical scenarios, and lessons learned in the
assurance of S&S for critical infrastructures. Since the special interest
on S&S assurance, a special focus will be put on model-based approaches; to
the joint modelling and analysis of both cyber and physical aspects of
critical infrastructures; and to the definition of unifying modelling and
analysis methodologies. Research papers focused on safety or security
assurance only are also welcome.

The workshop is technically sponsored by the Technical Committee on
Homeland Security of IEEE SMC (Systems, Man & Cybernetics) society.

Topics of interests are, but not limited to:

* Methods and Methodologies: Vulnerability and Risk Assessment; Model-Based
Penetration Testing; Security Metrics Definition and Evaluation; RAMSS
Analysis; Crisis and Emergency Management; Unifying Modelling Methodologies
for Cyber and Physical Security; Resilience Engineering.
* Modelling: Stochastic Modeling; Formal Methods; Domain Specific Languages
and Model-Driven Engineering; Multi-Level Hierarchical Modeling;
Multi-Paradigm Modeling.
* Analysis: Quantitative & Qualitative Evaluation; Interconnections Among
Non-Functional Aspects (e.g., Reliability vs. Safety, Security vs.
Performance); Multiformal and Multisolution Processes; Resilience Analysis.
* Domains: Cyber-Physical Systems; Critical Infrastructure Protection;
SCADA and Control Systems Security; Automotive; Homeland Security;
Transportation, Manufacturing, Energy, Health and Banking Applications;
Computer Networks and Cloud Infrastructures.

# Important Dates

 - Abstract Submission: December 9, 2016
 - Paper submission deadline: December 12, 2016
 - Notification to authors: January 18, 2017
 - Camera-ready papers: February 8, 2017

# Paper Submission

Submitted papers will be reviewed by three members of Program Committee (or
their sub-reviewers) and selection of accepted papers will be based on
relevance, quality, and originality.

Accepted papers will be published in a special IEEE proceedings for “IEEE
EuroS&P Workshops” (pending approval).  At least one of the (co)author(s)
of each accepted paper is required to register and attend the conference to
present the work.
PDF versions of papers should be submitted through EasyChair submission
system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=s4cip17).

After the conference, extended versions of selected contributions will be
considered for publication in a Special Issue of the International Journal
of Critical Computer-Based Systems (
http://www.inderscience.com/jhome.php?jcode=ijccbs). Those papers will
undergo at least another review round.

# Page Limit and Formatting

Papers must not exceed 6 pages total (including the references and
appendices). Papers must be formatted for US letter (not A4) size paper.
The text must be formatted in a two-column layout, with columns no more
than 9.5 in. tall and 3.5 in. wide. The text must be in Times font,
10-point or larger, with 11-point or larger line spacing. Authors are
strongly encouraged to use the IEEE conference proceedings templates
(available at
LaTeX submissions should use IEEEtran.cls version 1.8b, dated 2015/08/26,
in Compsoc Conference Mode:

\documentclass[compsoc, conference, letterpaper, 10pt, times]{IEEEtran}

Failure to adhere to the page limit and formatting requirements can be
grounds for rejection.
