General Information

The First Open EIT ICT Labs Workshop on Smart Grid
Security, an activity of the action line smart energy
systems of the EIT ICT Labs, will be held at the EIT ICT
Co-Location Centre Node Berlin, alongside the 2012 Berlin
IEEE Innovative Smart Grid Conference, on December 3rd,
2012. The Co-location Centre (CLC) is inside the campus of
TU Berlin, in the heart of the city's west - a hotspot
where education, research and industry, see

nodes-co-location-centres/berlin/. SmartGridSec12 is also
co-sponsored by the Network of Excellence on Engineering
Secure Future Internet SW, NESSoS, www.nessos-project.eu/

Context and Motivation

The need for a reliable, efficient, and sustainable energy
supply is steadily increasing. The Smart Grid is proposed
as an innovative, flexible, adaptable system which
revolutionizes the current interconnection architecture and
creates new services and offering new management and
business opportunities for many stakeholders. Real-time
communication between the consumer and the utility will
allow the consumer to optimize local energy production,
storage and usage; power will flow in different directions,
depending on where generation takes place; buildings will
actively participate of in the grid as consumers,
producers, and energy storage facilities; electro-cars can
be charged during low-demand periods and used as short-term
energy storage.

Components will communicate with each other and will
provide operational and nonoperational information to users
and administrators. This will require the use of global
communication networks, like the Internet, and will open
the door to conventional hacking and to cyber attacks. Not
only will it be necessary to carefully assess the threads
and risks, but also to have a consensus on the definition
and implementation of measures and mechanisms to cope with
them, or to recover from them. The infrastructure,
workflows, processes and systems must be protected against
unauthorized modification, required information should be
accessible in the right place at the right time, the
sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) related
to the consumption of energy, the location of the electric
car, but also confidential business information etc must
remain secure from unauthorized access.

There is a clear need in Europe to integrate the fragmented
research and development efforts in securing the Smart
Grid. This workshop will be a venue to share and
consolidate results, plan joint work, and create networks
to accomplish these ambitioned goals.

Program Committee welcomes proposals for contributions on
any topics related to:

- Attackers, Threats, Risk Analysis
- Security of Smart Grid protocols
- IDS / IPS / SIEM for Smart Grids / SCADA systems
- Security related Smart Grid test beds and simulators
- Security for long term deployment
- Securing the Smart Grids from the business and market
   perspective: Products, Stakeholders, Models
- Cross organizational security aspects
- Real-time monitoring and recovery
- Privacy issues
- Standardization
- Certification, Regulatory issues

Program Chairs:

JoŽl Chinnow (DAI)
Jorge Cuellar (Siemens)

Program Committee:

James Weimer (KTH)
Matthias Hollick (TU Darmstadt)

Submissions

Full paper submissions, extended abstracts and short papers
are welcome. Full papers are limited to 5-10 pages, while
extended abstracts and short papers should be 2-5 pages
long. The authors of extended abstracts should submit a
full version to be published in the postproceedings. Short
papers can be presented as poster presentations. All papers
will be reviewed by the program committee, and a balanced
program will be selected based on relevance and technical
soundness. Short paper contributions may be selected as
