ICSE 2023
Sun 14 - Sat 20 May 2023 Melbourne, Australia

The 4th edition of the International Workshop on Engineering and Cybersecurity of Critical Systems (EnCyCriS) is organized in conjunction with the 45th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) (https://conf.researchr.org/home/icse-2023). This workshop will be held in May 2023. https://ife.no/en/event/encycris-2023/


All participants, including workshop organizers, keynote speakers, and invited guests, must register for the workshop through ICSE webpage. Registrations are mandated and must be performed at least 10 days prior to this workshop. We cannot guarantee participation after this date – information to be updated.


This workshop will be organized as a physical and virtual hybrid event. The physical venue of this workshop is Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia. The workshop is aiming to be organized physically as a co-located event to ICSE 2023. Be advised that although we aim for a hybrid event (both physically and digitally), the digital option is not confirmed yet and may be changed. The workshop will not cover participants or authors expenses for travel or registration.

Call for Papers

The workshop will facilitate discourse and discussions among researchers, practitioners, and students who are working on challenges and solutions related to the industrial revolution. There will be a particular focus on sharing industry experience and project results pertaining to cyber threats on critical systems, secure software engineering, and attack detection and response mechanisms.

EnCyCriS invites contributions from research scholars and practitioners working on challenges and solutions for engineering and cybersecurity of critical systems on the following topics:

  • Safe, reliable, and secure by design - and - Safety and security co-engineering.
  • Threat modeling and analyzing software systems security in critical infrastructures.
  • Identification and impact estimation for response of cyber effects on software and hardware of critical infrastructures using models, simulations, and digital twins.
  • The role and impact of human in cybersecurity in critical infrastructures development and operation.

Important dates

  • Paper Submission Deadline: 13th January 2023 => 30th January 2023 (extended)
  • Paper Acceptance Notification: 24th February 2023
  • Camera-ready Papers: 17th March 2023

Paper Submission

Workshop proceedings will be prepared by IEEE CPS and published in ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Workshop papers must follow the ACM formatting instructions. Papers must have a maximum length of 8 pages. All paper should be submitted in PDF through the HotCRP platform of the workshop: https://encycris23.hotcrp.com/
