First IEEE International Workshop on
Sponsored by the
IEEE Computer Society Task Force on Information Assurance
|IEEE IA Activities Home|
The protection of critical infrastructures such as telecommunications, energy, financial services, health care, public services, and transportation has moved from being primarily driven by safety and engineering concerns to also incorporating elements of security, particularly from external hostile actions, but also including sabotage from within. Moreover, these critical infrastructures not only exhibit strong interdependence but are also increasingly relying on information systems for their operation.
This workshop is part of a comprehensive IEEE program to realize the potential of IT to deliver the information it produces and stores with high assurance. An open forum is provided for contributions covering research, applications, policy-related issues, and standards on information assurance and security and underlying technologies.
The IEEE Task Force on Information Assurance is sponsoring an interdisciplinary workshop on research, policy, and experience in the field of critical infrastructure protection (CIP) and critical information infrastructure protection (CIIP).
Scientific and Technical Understanding of CIP/CIIP
Scientific, Technical, and Organizational Approaches for CIP/CIIP
National and Transnational CIP/CIIP Positions and Issues
Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Press in a proceedings volume.
Full Paper Submissions
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop with proceedings. The paper must list all authors and their affiliates on a separate sheet; in case of multiple authors, the contact author must be indicated. The paper itself must be blinded. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of key words, and its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader.
Submissions should have at most 10 pages excluding the bibliography and appendices (using 10pt body text and two-column layout), and at most 15 pages total.
Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
There will be a best student paper award pending sufficient submissions. Please state clearly whether full-time students made major contributions to a paper at the time of submission. These papers will, however, be refereed identially with all other submissions.
