Longest Running ICS Cyber Security Conference Opens Call for Presentations for 2015 Event
The official Call for Papers for the 2015 Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference, to be held October 26 – 29, 2015 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, Ga., is now open.
The conference is the foremost and longest-running cyber security-focused event series for the industrial control systems sectors and caters to the energy, water, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
With a long 13-year history, the conference has proven to bring value to attendees through the robust exchange of technical information, actual incidents, insights, and best practices to help protect critical infrastructures from cyber attacks.
Produced by SecurityWeek, the conference addresses ICS/SCADA topics including protection for SCADA systems, plant control systems, engineering workstations, substation equipment, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and other field control system devices.
The Conference is unique and has historically focused on control system end-users from various industries and what cyber vulnerabilities mean to control system reliability and safe operation. It also has a history of having discussions of actual ICS cyber incidents.
Through the Call for Papers, a conference committee will accept speaker submissions for possible inclusion in the program at the 2015 ICS Cyber Security Conference.
The conference committee encourages proposals for main track and breakout sessions, as well as training and workshops. All sessions are 45 minutes in length including Q&A.
The Conference Committee is particularly interested in submissions on the following topics: ICS/SCADA cyber incidents, results and observations from ICS/SCADA mitigation measures, results and observations from ICS/SCADA vulnerability assessments, live attack demonstrations, vulnerabilities and exploits, and results and observations from joint IT/ICS projects.
To be considered, interested speakers should submit proposals by email to events(at)securityweek.com with the subject line “ICS2015 CFP” by August 7, 2015.
Submissions must include proposed presentation title, an informative session abstract, including learning objectives for attendees if relevant; and contact information and bio for the submitter. All speakers must adhere to the 100% vendor neutral / no commercial policy of the conference. If speakers cannot respect this policy, they should not submit a proposal.
The 2015 Conference is expected to attract more than 250 professionals from around the world.
