2nd International Workshop on Critical Information Infrastructures Security
October 3-5, 2007, Benalmadena-Costa (Malaga), Spain

(Including ITCIP '07, Information Technology for Critical Infrastructure Protection)
Key sectors of modern economies depend highly on ICT. The information flowing through the resulting technological super-infrastructure as well as the information being processed by the complex computing systems that underpin it becomes crucial because its disruption, disturbance or loss can lead to high economical, material and, sometimes, human loss. As a consequence, the security and dependability of this infrastructure becomes critical and its protection a major objective for governments, companies and the research community.

CRITIS'07 wants to bring together researchers and professionals from universities, private companies and Public Administrations interested or involved in all security-related heterogeneous aspects of Critical Information Infrastructures. We invite research papers, work-in-progress reports, R&D projects results, surveying works and industrial experiences describing significant security advances in the following (non-exclusive) areas of Critical Information Infrastructures for which we plan to have sessions:

Code of Practice and Metrics Communication Risk & Assurance
Early Warning Systems Economics on CIP
R&D Agenda SCADA and Embedded Security
National and Cross Border Issues Information Sharing and Exchange
Policy Options Elaboration Threats and Attacks Modeling

Furthermore, the following topics are within the scope of CRITIS'07:

Continuity of Services and Resiliency Dependable Infrastruc. Communications
Internet-based remote control Forensic Techniques
Incident Response Network Survivability
Trust Models in Critical Scenarios Security Logistics

Instructions for paper submission

All submissions will be subjected to a thorough blind review by at least three reviewers. Papers should be up to 12 pages in English, including bibliography and well-marked appendices. As in the case of CRITIS'06, post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (confirmed). Pre-proceedings will appear at the time of the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register with the Workshop and present the paper.

To submit a paper, select the Paper Submission option in the menu and note the following. The submitted paper (in PDF or PostScript format), which should follow the template indicated by Springer, must start with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. However, it should be anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, nor obvious references.
