Elsevier Computers & Electrical Engineering (CAEE) Special issue on
Critical Systems Modeling and Security


*Aim and Scope*

Modeling is an essential tool for the study and analysis of security
and dependability of Critical Information Infrastructures. It can be
used to evaluate properties such as disruption, disturbance and loss
of information, and to anticipate incidents that could lead to
situations involving economical, material and, even, human loss. This
special issue is intended to report the most recent research works
related to security threats, critical service malfunctioning or
information leakage targeting, among others, SCADA, Industrial Control
Systems and other Critical Scenarios, associated to both government
and industrial companies. It also seeks to report new needs,
approaches, methods and tools addressing this crucial topic.

*Topics of Interest*

The objective is to bring together advances particularly in the
following fields (not limited to):

-- Attack and vulnerability analysis
-- Benchmarking and statistical analysis tools
-- Wireless security modeling
-- Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP)
-- Cybersecurity and cyberwarfare modeling
-- Continuity of services
-- Dependable communication models
-- Infrastructure security modeling
-- Early Warning Systems
-- Embedded Technologies Security
-- Intrusion detection and prevention in Critical Scenarios
-- Fault tolerance and incident response
-- Risk analysis and management
-- SCADA/DCS and Control System Security
-- Secure information sharing
-- Security and dependability logistic models
-- Self-management architectures
-- Situation awareness and response optimization
-- Trust and reputation management in Critical Scenarios

*Submission Guidelines*

Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation,
relevance and contribution to the topic associated to the special
issue, and for their overall quality. The submitted papers have to
describe original research which has not been published nor currently
under review by other journals or conferences. Guest editors will make
an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all
submissions. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in
presentation or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not
be sent for review and authors will be promptly informed in such
