Call for Workshop Papers WISI @ ARES 2019

WISI 2019

Workshop on Industrial Security and IoT (WISI) to be held in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2019 –

August 26 – August 29, 2019, Canterbury, UK

The factory of the future requires an effective interconnection of machinery, robots, lines, products, sensors and operators to each other and to back-end systems. The industrial propagation environment may also be harsh, mostly metalized, and suffering from man-made, impulsive interference. Industrial IoT priorities are security, low latency, reliability and low cost. However, smart factories are also looking for enhanced services for people and machines that create an added value that is beyond the limits of the production environment, such as indoor localisation, smart logistic support, remote maintenance and access to machine data and advanced IT infrastructure, smart tracking of connected components and products.

In this workshop we invite papers to discuss security demands of Industry 4.0, as well as specific security tools and methods, which enable interconnection of engineering activities at multiple levels of security and safety, in order to improve system resilience and to support security lifecycle management.

IoT4CPS @ ICT 2018: Imagine Digital

The ICT 2018: Imagine Digital took place in Vienna from December 4 -6, 2018. The 20 year anniversary brought the ICT conference back to Vienna where it premiered in 1998. With a confirmed number of over 6000 participants this year´s conference broke all previous records. In addition to a successful community session and the contribution to several networking sessions, IoT4CPS was also represented in the Austrian Village along with fellow FFG lighthouse projects.

Denise Ratasich (TUW) and Julia Pammer(SBA Research) showcase one of our demonstrators to Klaus Pseiner, head of FFG.
