Call For Papers

CRITIS 2018, the 13th edition of the CRITIS series of conferences, seeks to promote innovative research and key achievements in the field of critical (information) infrastructure protection and resilience.

The CRITIS series of conferences foster the cross-sector dialogue between relevant stakeholders: academics, practitioners, critical (information) infrastructure operators, industry, defence sector and policy-makers.

Moreover, CRITIS aims to encourage and inspire early stage and open-minded researchers in this demanding multi-disciplinary field of research. Outstanding research performance demonstrated by young researchers may compete for the Young CRITIS Award (YCA).


CRITIS 2018 covers three thematic foci. Paper submission is encouraged but not limited to the following topics. Note: Definitions for the keywords used in this Call for Papers can be found in the online glossary CIPedia©.

Topic 1: Technologies: Innovative responses for the protection of cyber-physical systems

    Fault tolerant control for cyber-physical systems / C(I)I
    Modelling and analysis of cyber-physical systems / C(I)I
    Modelling, Simulation, Analysis and Validation approaches to C(I)IP

Topic 2: Advances in C(I)IP organisation: Policies, good practices and lessons learned

    International approaches to C(I)IP including identification of C(I)I elements
    Risk management, impact and consequence analysis regarding C(I)I
    Coherent prevention, preparedness / exercises, incident management / mitigation, and recovery approaches to C(I)I

    C(I)IP R&D agenda at national and international levels
    Economics, investments and incentives for C(I)IP
    Defence of civilian CI and CII in conflicts with cyber warfare elements
    Forensics and attribution in attacked C(I)I
    Infrastructure, architectural and technology changes in the energy sector which may impact the sector approach to C(I)I or challenge other C(I)I-sectors, e.g. smart grids and energy supply in smart city developments
    Impact of geopolitical & social factors and threats

Topic 3: Advances in Human Factors, decision support, and cross-sector CI(I)P approaches – focus on end-users

    Analysis of Human Factor and Security Awareness in C(I)IP
