1st Workshop on Cyber Security and Resilience of

Large-Scale Systems

 WSRL 2014


DISPLAY Dissemination Workshop

September 3-5, 2014, Madrid, Spain

To be held in conjunction with

8th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing - IDC


Control and intelligent applications are a vital part of modern large-scale systems in various application areas, such as energy generation and distribution, traffic control and critical infrastructure. Centralized control is being replaced by distributed and more open control systems that possess increasing levels of autonomy. Communication networks and intelligent systems are at the core of these developments. Such systems must be able to recover from the failures and intrusion in order to maintain their functions. Therefore, achieving resilience and security in the complex, interconnected, and interdependent systems of today requires an integrated approach in engineering to address of resilience considerations across all constituent systems, cyber and physical. Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:

  •         Simulation and modelling of resilient large-scale systems
  •         Metrics for quantifying the dependability of resilient evolving systems
  •         Model verification and validation for dependability and security evaluation
  •         Formal verification, testing, analytical and experimental evaluation
  •         Recovery-oriented and autonomic computing
  •         Real-time large-scale systems
  •         Security in systems engineering
  •         Cyber-security engineering processes
  •         Secure and resilient federated cloud environments 
  •         Risk management and vulnerability analysis in complex systems
  •         Case studies on security and reliability issues in critical infrastructures
  •         Intrusion detection, mitigation and management
  •         Distributed reaction and active defence for resilience
  •         Privacy and security of large-scale big data platform


Paper Publication

All accepted papers will be included in the Symposium Proceedings, which will be published by Springer as part of their series Studies in Computational Intelligence.

The best papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing
