ACM BuildSys 2016
The 3rd ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Built Environments (BuildSys 2016) will host a highly selective, single-track forum for research on systems issues covering all aspects of the built environment, broadly defined.

Advances in the effective integration of networked sensors, building controls, and physical infrastructure are transforming our society, allowing the formation of unprecedented built environments and interlocking physical, social, cyber challenges. Moreover, built environments, including buildings and critical urban infrastructure, account for over half of society's energy consumption and are the mainstay of our nation’s economy, security and health. As a result, there is a broad recognition that systems optimizing explicitly for the built environment are particularly important in improving our society, and represent the foundation for emerging "smart cities".

BuildSys is an ideal venue for researchers and practitioners working to develop and optimize such smart infrastructure systems that are driven by networked sensing, computing, and control functions.

IEEE SmartGridComm
IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications
Call for Papers

The transformation of modern electricity grids at the local and global scale into smart grids is at the core of sustainable economic, environmental and societal growth worldwide. This migration to more intelligent, user-friendly and responsive grids around the world is in large part enabled by the development and deployment of appropriate communication and information technologies. Such Smart Grid Communication systems need to be seen as part of a larger system of systems to manage energy generation and distribution with C3 technologies - Communication, Control and Computing - playing key roles. Smart Grid Communications support such applications as control and information processing systems to support two-way energy flows, the automatic management of power outages, and the integration of renewable energy sources and allowing the consumers to play an active role in energy production and adaptive consumption. The resulting rich confluence of disciplines is part of the specific challenge and appeal of smart grid communications research and development.

ICCPS 2016
CALL FOR PAPERS
The 7th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS2016)

April 11-14, 2016 in Vienna, Austria as part of CPSWeek 2016
http://iccps.acm.org/2016/


As digital computing and communication becomes faster, cheaper and available in packages which are smaller and use less power, these capabilities are becoming embedded in many objects and structures in the physical environment. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by such computing and communication. Broad deployment of cyber-physical systems is transforming how we interact with the physical world as profoundly as the world wide web transformed how we interact with one another, and harnessing their capabilities holds the possibility of enormous societal and economic impact.

ICCPS is the premier single-track conference for reporting advances in all aspects of cyber-physical systems, including theory, tools, applications, systems, testbeds and field deployments. This year, the conference features two focus areas for submissions: one on CPS foundations (the traditional focus of ICCPS), and one on secure and resilient infrastructure CPS (the focus of the former HiCoNS conference). The entire program committee is eligible to review in both areas, but authors will be asked to specify one of the two areas during submission in order to aid with reviewer selection

The CPS foundations (CPSF) area focuses on core science and technology for developing fundamental principles that underpin the integration of cyber and physical elements. Application domains include transportation, energy, water, agriculture, ecology, supply-chains, medical and assistive technology, sensor and social networks, and robotics. Among the relevant research areas are security, control, optimization, machine learning, game theory, mechanism design, mobile and cloud computing, model-based design, verification, data mining / analytics, signal processing, and human-in-the-loop shared or supervisory control.

The secure and resilient infrastructure CPS (HiCoNS) area focuses on the confluence of cyber-security, privacy, and CPS that impacts the operation of critical infrastructures such as the smart grid, water distribution, transportation, healthcare, building automation, and process control. Of particular interest is foundational work that cuts across multiple application areas or advances the scientific understanding of underlying principles for the development of high confidence (secure, reliable, robust, and trustworthy) networked CPS.


SUBMISSIONS AND KEY DATES:

In concert with the other CPSWeek conferences, ICCPS will require that authors register paper titles and abstracts by October 8 (one week before the full paper submission deadline).

Abstract Registration: October 8, 2015

Full Paper Submission: October 15, 2015

Manuscripts should be no more than 10 pages in two-column ACM conference style. Formatting and submission instructions can be found at the website

INTRICATE-SEC 2016
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are ubiquitous in critical infrastructures such as electrical power generation, transmission, and distribution networks, water management, and transportation, but also in both industrial and home automation. For flexibility, convenience, and efficiency, CPS are increasingly supported by commodity hardware and software components that are deliberately interconnected using open standard general purpose information and communication technology (ICT).

The long life-cycles of CPS and increasingly incremental changes to these systems require novel approaches to the composition and inter-operability of services provided. The paradigm of service-oriented architectures (SoA) has successfully been used in similar long-lived and heterogeneous software systems. However, adapting the SoA paradigm to the CPS domain requires maintaining the security, reliability and privacy properties not only of the individual components but also, for complex interactions and service orchestrations that may not even exist during the initial design and deployment of an architecture.

An important consideration therefore is the design and analysis of security mechanisms and architectures able to handle cross domain inter-operability over multiple domains involving components with highly heterogeneous capabilities. We seek novel theoretical and application-centered contributions focused on (but not restricted to) the following topics:

  • Security and Privacy for CPS

  • Anonymity and Pseudonymity

  • Authentication and Authorization

  • Trust & Identity Management

  • Privacy

  • Malware

  • Secure Service Platforms for CPS

  • Smart Grids

  • Demand Management

  • Scheduling

  • Energy Managment Models

  • Mobile Web Services and Middleware

  • Secure Architectures for CPS

  • Data Modeling

  • Home Energy Management

  • Scalability, Reliability, and Safety

  • Resource Constrained and Low Power Lossy Networks

  • Unconventional/Biologically Inspired Models



Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with published proceedings. Duplications or overlap with other published or submitted papers will be considered as grounds for rejection.

Papers should be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF) only, edited using the two-column CPS Proceedings style, and may not be longer than 6 pages (including references and appendices).

Templates are available at the IEEE authors' portal. All submissions must be made on the EDAS site. Accepted papers will appear in the INTRICATE-SEC proceedings published by CPS. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the INTRICATE-SEC workshop in person to present the paper. Failure to do so will result in the paper being excluded from the proceedings.
