CIIW 2005: The first CRIS International Workshop on Critical Information Infrastructures

Cyber blackouts: How fast is the recovery, and what preparatory measures do we have in place?


17-18 May 2005, Linkoeping, Sweden.

This workshop is being held as a combined research-oriented workshop and information exchange for experts and authorities involved in Critical Infrastructures, but with a focus on information infrastructures.

It is supported by CRIS, the international Institute for Research on Critical Infrastructures (www.cris-inst.com) and is a follow-up to a European union IST workshop recently held on “The future of ICT for power systems: emerging security challenges”.

The workshop seeks two categories of papers:
(1) high quality unpublished papers (full papers)
(2) work-in-progress and student papers discussing recent interesting work

related to the following research areas:

* Dynamic network protection with adaptive and proactive methods
* Intrusion prevention, detection, tolerance and response
* Defence strategies for ISP networks
* Infrastructure vulnerabilities and dependencies
* Monitoring and analysing attack patterns within specific systems or domains
* Monitoring and analysing attack patterns in Internet data
* Recognition and response systems for distributed attacks, e.g. CAPTCHAs
* Distributed denial of service attacks
* Self-propagating malicious code
* Cyber terrorism and organized crime
* System management and self-managed systems
* Self-healing systems, automated patching and node/link recovery, ad-hoc routing
* Real-time response and mitigation
* Network fault-tolerance: wireless networks, sensor networks, IP networks
* Security policy, protection, access control and authentication
* Models and architectures for network survivability
* Interoperability between hybrid wireline/wireless networks
* Robust infrastructures

The topics indicated are not restrictive, on the contrary they are listed as a guide for the reader.

The articles will be reviewed and selected based on their originality, significance and soundness. Selected papers will be proposed for a special issue of a distinguished journal (contacts in progress).
