2014 ICS Cyber Security Conference Call for Papers Now Open

SecurityWeek today announced the official Call for Papers for the 2014 Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference, to be held October 20 – 23, 2014 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Now in its 12th year, the conference is the foremost and longest-running cyber security-focused event series for the industrial control systems sectors.

The conference will cater to the energy, water, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.

Produced by SecurityWeek, the conference will address 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 2014 ICS Cyber Security Conference.

This year's event features new “In Focus” tracks that will explore very specific subject and industry-specific areas of ICS and be limited to 70 attendees. Main track sessions and keynotes will accommodate 250 attendees.

The conference committee encourages proposals for both main track and In Focus sessions. All sessions are 45 minutes in length including a 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, and results and observations from joint IT/ICS projects.

To be considered, interested speakers should submit proposals by email to [email protected] by August 15, 2014.

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. For questions regarding speaking opportunities please contact the events team at [email protected].

“The IT community and ICS community are now bridging the security gap,” said Joe Weiss, founder of the ICS Cyber Security Conference, which was recently acquired by SecurityWeek. “The value to attendees at the conference is inherent with the robust exchange of technical information, actual incidents, insights and best practices to help protect critical infrastructures from cyber attacks.”

“It has become paramount that critical infrastructures balance the needs of ICS reliability and safety with cyber security,” Weiss added.

Following a sold out event in 2013, the 2014 Conference is expected to attract more than 250 professionals from around the world.

Selected speakers will receive a complimentary full conference pass good for all days of the 2014 Conference.
