Track description

Simulation is an essential tool for the study and analysis of security and dependability of Critical Information Infrastructures. It can be used to address properties such as disruption, disturbance and loss of information, and to anticipate incidents that could lead to situations involving economical, material and, even, human loss. This track aims to bring together latest research and application on modeling and simulation of critical infrastructures associated to both government and industrial companies. It seeks to discuss and exchange ideas related to new needs, approaches, methods and tools.

The main topics, but not limited to, include:

 Attack and Vulnerability Analysis

 Benchmarking and Statistical Analysis Tools

 Continuity of Services

 Dependable Communication Models

 Early Warning Systems

 Embedded Technologies Security

 Fault Tolerance and Incident Response

 Forensic Techniques and Monitoring

 Internet-based Control of Remote Systems

 SCADA/DCS and Control System Security

 Secure Information Sharing

 Security and Dependability Logistic Models

 Self-healing, Self-protection, Self-management Architectures

 Situation Awareness and Response Optimization

 Threats and Attack Modeling

 Trust Models in Critical Scenarios
