CRITIS 2017: Call for Papers deadline approaching

  • Security
  • Promoting

We would like to remind you that the CRITIS 2017 call for papers is still open until 2 June.

Following the previous CRITIS edition which was organised in Paris at UIC Headquarters, CRITIS 2017 is continuing its efforts to bring together scientist, experts, policy makers and professionals from academia, industry and governmental organisations engaged in the field of the security of critical (information) infrastructure systems. CRITIS provides a bridge for the different research communities and disciplines involved in the CIP and encourages discussions, conceptualisations and modelling, especially when based on multi-disciplinary approaches.

Call for papers and posters
You can submit your scientific contribution on the following topics: Cyber Security; Human Factors; Transport; Emergency Management; Urban Resilience; Trust and Information Sharing; Methods, Analyses and Models. All accepted contributions will be included in full length in the pre-proceedings that will appear at the time of the conference; accepted papers are planned to be published in the LNCS Springer-Verlag series. Special attention will be devoted to young talents through the Young Critis Award (YCA) including a prize for the best contribution presented by a young author.

Special dissemination sessions
An “Operator Session” is planned where Operators will present specific issues or their innovative solutions. While participation in this session does not require the submission of an abstract, nor the publication of any proceedings, the Operators may also participate in the conference as any other contributor.

A “Project Session” is also planned where projects on C(I)IP will be given the opportunity to disseminate preliminary results and ongoing work. In addition, this session will represent a unique occasion to strengthen or create consortia for future project proposals.

Key dates
Paper submission: June 2
Registration open: July 1
Acceptance notification: July 15
Camera-ready papers: September 1
CRITIS Conference: October 9–11
