[DMANET] CFP: 2016 Joint Workshop on Cyber-Physical Security and Resilience in Smart Grids

[Apologies for possible multiple copies of this CFP]

Call for Papers

Title: 2016 Joint Workshop on Cyber-Physical Security and Resilience in
Smart Grids
Date: 12th April 2016, Vienna, Austria
Workshop Chairs: Anna Magdalena Kosek (DTU, Denmark), Paul Smith (AIT,
Austria), Reinder Wolthuis (TNO, The Netherlands)
Supporting Projects: SPARKS, SEGRID, SALVAGE

This workshop is part of the CPS week 2016, 11th - 14th April 2016,
Vienna, Austria

Workshop Scope
Future power systems and smart grids will include a greater Information
and Communication Technology (ICT) component,
in order to support future energy services. Whilst 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. The purpose of this workshop is to
be a forum for discussion on the key
challenges in ensuring the security and resilience of cyber-physical
smart grids. This multi-disciplinary
workshop is being co-organized by three major European-funded research
projects in the smart grid area,
namely the SALVAGE, SEGRID and SPARKS projects. The workshop will run
for a full day and include a keynote
speech plus regular paper presentations.

Paper Submissions
Submitted papers should not exceed six pages, the workshop language is
English. The submitted papers are required
to comply with the IEEE conference format guidelines

Please submit your original work via EasyChair submission system
