9th International Conference on
Critical Information Infrastructures Security

October 13-15, 2014
Limassol, Cyprus

Modern society relies on the availability and smooth operation of a variety
of complex engineering systems. These systems are termed Critical
Infrastructure Systems (CIS). Some of the most prominent examples of
critical infrastructure systems are electric power systems,
telecommunication networks, water distribution systems, transportation
systems, wastewater and sanitation systems, financial and banking systems,
food production and distribution, and oil/natural gas pipelines. Our
everyday life and well-being depend heavily on the reliable operation and
efficient management of these critical infrastructures. The citizens expect
that critical infrastructure systems will always be available and that, at
the same time, they will be managed efficiently (i.e., they will have a low
cost). Experience has shown that this is most often true. Nevertheless,
critical infrastructure systems fail occasionally. Their failure may be due
to natural disasters (e.g., earthquakes and floods), accidental failures
(e.g., equipment failures, software bugs, and human errors), or malicious
attacks (either direct or remote). When critical infrastructures fail, the
consequences are tremendous. These consequences may be classified into
societal, health, and economic.

On behalf of the Steering Committee and the Local Organizing Committee we
invite you to submit papers and attend the CRITIS 2014 conference. *CRITIS
2014* continues a well-established tradition of successful annual
conferences. It aims at bringing together researchers and professionals
from academia, industry and governmental organizations working in the field
of the security of critical infrastructure systems.

*Important dates*

Deadline for invited session proposals: March 26, 2014
Deadline for submission of papers: April 2, 2014
Notification to authors: June 1, 2014
Camera-ready papers: June 25, 2014


Limassol, Cyprus

*Submission *

Further details for submission procedures will be announced in the updated
call for papers in early January 2014.


• Infrastructure resilience and survivability
• Security and protection of complex cyber-physical systems
• Self-healing, self-protection, and self-management architectures
• Cyber security in critical infrastructure systems
• Critical (information-based) infrastructures exercises and contingency
• Advanced forensic methodologies for critical information infrastructures
• Economics, investments and incentives of critical infrastructure
• Infrastructure dependencies: modeling, simulation, analysis and validation
• Critical infrastructure network and organizational vulnerability analysis
• Critical infrastructure threat and attack modelling
• Public-private partnership for critical infrastructure resilience
• Critical infrastructure protection polices at national and cross-border
• Fault diagnosis for critical infrastructures
• Fault tolerant control for critical infrastructures
• Security and protection of smart buildings
• Detection and management of incidents/attacks on critical infrastructures
• Preparedness, prevention, mitigation and planning

*Call for Special Sessions*

Proposals for organizing special sessions during CRITIS 2014 are cordially
invited. Special sessions will comprise 4-6 papers presenting a unifying
theme of interest to the conference attendees from a diversity of
viewpoints. Special Session proposals from active research projects are
particularly welcomed. Proposals for special sessions must include the
title of the session, a paragraph describing the theme of the session,
names and affiliation of the contributing authors, and tentative titles of
the contributions.

The component papers must be submitted separately, by the respective
authors, as per the regular submission procedure. Each paper in a proposed
invited session will be individually reviewed. Any rejected papers
submitted as part of an invited session will be removed and appropriate
contributed papers may be substituted, at the discretion of the Program
Committee. Likewise, selected papers from rejected invited sessions may be
placed into other sessions. Further exchanges may be made to ensure
coherence of the sessions, at the discretion of the Program Committee.
