The WCICSS-2018 is a meeting point for professionals and researchers, IT security professionals, managers, developers, educators, vendors and service providers who are involved in development, integration, assessment, implementation, and operation of industrial cybersecurity technologies. Therefore, the conference will provide opportunities to discuss both the current status and emerging trends in protection of industrial control systems. The aim of WCICSS is to provide an opportunity for academicians and professionals from various educational fields with cross-disciplinary interests to bridge the knowledge gap, promote research esteem and the evolution of pedagogy. The WCICSS-2018 invites research papers that encompass conceptual analysis, design implementation and performance evaluation.

Apologies for cross-postings!

Kindly email this Call for Papers to your colleagues, faculty members and postgraduate students.
