EnCyCriS 2021
Thu 3 Jun 2021
co-located with ICSE 2021

EnCyCriS 2021 is the second edition of the International Workshop on Engineering and Cybersecurity of Critical Systems (EnCyCriS).

This workshop invites paper contributions from research scholars and practitioners working on challenges and solutions for engineering and cybersecurity of critical systems in the 4th Industrial Revolution. The 4th Industrial Revolution refers to the era of revolution created by the convergence of cyber-physical systems and the advances in the information and communication technologies. The 4th Industrial Revolution aims at the intelligent world through connection, decentralization, sharing, and opening, where software is the driving force.

Like other industries or domains, critical infrastructures such as energy, transportation, and public health are also going through digital transformation to optimize their services and processes as well as to reduce costs. However, adoption of digital technology for critical systems has exposed them to cyber, physical and combined cyber-physical threats. A cyberattack on a critical system can inflict severe catastrophe to society, economy and national security. Assuring safety and reliability of these systems is also of utmost importance.

This workshop opens discussions among researchers, practitioners and students who are working on challenges and solutions for the 4th Industrial Revolution, including cyber threats to critical systems; secure software engineering; and attack detection and response mechanisms.

The workshop will be organized with regular tracks and panel discussions. The workshop invites papers within the following topics:

  • Integrated and secured software engineering processes and methods for reliable critical infrastructure,

  • Safety by design in software engineering,

  • Security by design in software engineering,

  • Software engineering techniques enabling digital twin,

  • Simulation technology for analysis on safety, reliability, security, etc.,

  • Threats and risks modeling to critical infrastructures,

  • Cybersecurity risk visualization during development and operation,

  • Human factors in software engineering.

The edition of this year gathers 7 papers, presenting the focus and the challenges in the current research and industrial industries.
