Conference Call for Papers

2nd \”International workshop on Information & Operational Technology (IT & OT) security systems” (IOSec2019 –* to be held on *September 26-27, 2019* in Luxembourg city, Luxembourg.

Co-organized with The 24th \” European Symposium on Research in Computer Security ESORICS 2019\”



The recent advancements of ICT have given the opportunity to companies, public administrations and various Critical Infrastructures to offer new and innovative services and at the same time lower their operational costs. These advancements, however, were quickly adopted without proper evaluation of their impact on security, leaving current IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operation Technology) systems vulnerable to various kinds of cyberattacks. Furthermore, cybersecurity protection of IT and/or OT networks, data and storage areas in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is also problematic since such companies do not have the resources, expertise as well as funds to support and maintain cybersecurity operations in their premises. The International workshop on Information & Operational Technology (IT & OT) security systems 2019 aims to bring together viewpoints from diverse areas to explore the commonalities of security problems and solutions for advancing the collective science and practice of IT and OT security protection as well as promote security awareness and cybersecurity solutions for the SME community.

** Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


• Security architectures and frameworks for enterprises, SMEs, public administration or critical infrastructures

• Threat models for IT and OT systems and communication networks

• Cyber-threat detection, classification and profiling, Incident management

• Security training and awareness

• Risk assessment – safety and security

• Security validation, testing platforms and developments

• Hardware security, Cryptographic engineering

• Intrusion Detection, Intrusion Prevention

• Secure Software Development, Malicious Code Analysis

• Digital Forensics

• Identity and access management

• Privacy Enabling Technologies

Papers will be judged on novelty, significance, correctness, and clarity. We expect all papers to provide enough detail to enable reproducibility of their experimental results.

** Important Dates:


Paper submission deadline: July 10, 2019 (June 15, 2019)
