Call for Papers

Title: 2nd Workshop on Cyber-Physical Security and Resilience in Smart Grids
Date: 21st April 2017, Pittsburgh (PA, USA)
Workshop Chairs: Paul Smith (AIT, Austria), Reinder Wolthuis (TNO, The Netherlands), Oliver Gehrke (DTU, Denmark)
Supporting Projects: SPARKS, SALVAGE, SEGRID
This workshop is hosted by CPS week 2017, 18th - 21st April 2017, Pittsburgh (PA, USA)

Workshop Scope
Future power systems and smart grids will include a greater Information and Communication Technology (ICT) component to support new energy services. While this prospect has many benefits, it also makes power systems and smart grids more vulnerable to cyber-attacks and introduces increasingly critical dependencies between the cyber and physical domain of power systems. Building on the success of its first iteration, the purpose of this workshop is to continue to be a forum for discussion on hot topics and key challenges in ensuring the security and resilience of cyber-physical smart grids. This multi-disciplinary international workshop is being co-organised by three major European-funded research projects in the smart grid area, namely the SALVAGE, SEGRID and SPARKS projects. The workshop is expected to run for a full-day and include a keynote speech plus regular paper presentations. A Best Paper Award will be presented to an outstanding paper and presentation at the workshop.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, cyber-physical aspects of:
- Intrusion detection systems and security analytics for the smart grid
- Resilient control of power systems
- Security and resilience metrics for the smart grid
- Privacy issues and protection schemes for the smart grid
- (Co-)simulation and testbed environments for analysing security and resilience
- Cyber vulnerability detection and assessment
- Risk analysis of cyber-attacks to smart grids
- The design of secure and resilient smart grids, e.g., architectural design decisions
- The economics of security and resilience for the smart grid

Paper Submissions
Submissions should present unpublished original research, not under review elsewhere, and not exceed six pages. The workshop language is English. The submitted papers are required to comply with the ACM formatting guidelines (submitted as a PDF, printable on US Letter and A4 sized paper, using the two-column ACM format and be in 10 pt font). Please submit your original work via the EasyChair submission system. Accepted and presented papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library, subject to final approval by the conference committee.

The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research
and innovation partner for businesses and society. SICS Swedish ICT AB, will continue under its existing
Corporate Identity Number 556587-0019. The process of changing business name is under way, but until the
amendments are approved and registered by the Swedish Companies Registration Office, we will continue to
write quotes, contracts, agreements and other legal documents using the current company name.
