In 2017, the International Conference on Critical Information Infrastructures Security reaches its 12th anniversary.
CRITIS 2017 continues the tradition of presenting innovative research and exploring new challenges in the field of critical (information) infrastructures protection (C(I)IP) and fostering the dialogue with stakeholders. CRITIS 2017 renews efforts to bring together researchers and professionals from academia, industry and governmental organisations working in the field of the security of critical (information) infrastructure systems.
As in previous years, distinguished invited speakers and special events will complement a programme of original research contributions. The conference invites the different research communities and disciplines involved in the C(I)IP space, and encourages discussions and multi-disciplinary approaches to relevant C(I)IP problems.
This year 2017 edition of CRITIS will be hosted in Lucca , Italy by IMT - School for Advanced Studies - the Italian (2016 top ranked) public graduate school and research institute that focuses on the analysis of economic, societal, technological and cultural systems.
Along the line with the tradition, Satellite Workshops with take place just after the main conference sessions. On the other side, some specific innovations were introduced for the forthcoming Lucca edition. Beside the traditional sessions where original works and significant improvements will be presented, there will be other sessions devoted to Ongoing Projects and Operators.The Projects' Dissemination Session will be an opportunity of dissemination for ongoing project results both at European and Member States' level. These presentations will not be submitted to the reviewing process and will not lead to any publication. The purpose of this activity is sharing experiences among scientist and experts working on the different projects in the C(I)IP.
Similarly a session will be devoted to the Operators. As for the previous one, one does not expect original scientific work to be presented, open problems and heuristic solutions are expected to be outlined, instead. This specific session is aimed at abridging the gap between academic knowledge and actual applications.
The main conference will take place from Oct 9-th to 11-th. The following sessions are planned:
