1st Workshop on Security and Privacy in Cybermatics (SPiCy 2015)
in conjuction with IEEE Conference on Communications and Networks Security (IEEE-CNS)
Florence, Italy - September 30, 2015

In the modern age Cybermatics is differentiating itself by designing the physical and social
places into the cyber space to accomplish the union of three spaces: (i) Physical Cyberworld,
(ii) Social Cyberworld, and (iii) Thinking Cyberworld. In the cyber space, everywhere
cyber-nodes are significantly independent from the space-time limitations that exist in the
physical space. Along with the development of intelligent systems, Cybermatics has brought a
wide area of open issues during the cyber interaction, physical perception, social correlation,
and cognitive thinking. Currently, Cybermatics is still in its initial stage, and it is expected
that Cybermatics will lead industrialization and IT applications to a new level and will
significantly change the way of producing, living, and even thinking of the mankind.
Cybermatics will transform how we interact with and control the physical world around us, just
in the same way as the Internet transformed how we interact and communicate with one another
and revolutionized how and where we access information.

Cyber-physical systems are subject to threats stemming from increasing dependence on computer
and communication technologies. Cyber security threats exploit the increased complexity and
connectivity of critical infrastructure systems, placing the Nation's security, economy, public
safety, and health at risk. This workshop aims to represent an opportunity for cyber security
researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and users to exchange ideas, research findings,
techniques and tools, raise awareness, and share experiences related to all practical and
theoretical aspects of Cybermatics security issues.

Capturing security and privacy requirements in the early stages of system development is
essential for creating sufficient public confidence in order to facilitate the adoption of novel
systems of Cybermatics such as cyber-physical-social (CPS) systems,
cyber-physical-social-thinking (CPST) systems, and cyber-physical-thinking (CPT) systems.
However, security and privacy requirements are often not handled properly due to their wide
variety of facets and aspects which make them difficult to formulate.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government presenting novel research
on all theoretical and as well as practical aspects of Cybermatics.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Access control in Cyber Physical Systems
- Awareness, training, and simulation
- Data protection in Cybermatics
- Cybermatics security strategy
- Cybermatics security principles
- Cyber security in the secure infrastructure
- Identity management in Cyber Physical Systems
- IP-enabled environment security mechanisms (IPv4 to IPv6 transition)
- Fault tolerance
- Monitoring and real-time supervision
- Man-in-the-middle attack to the data flow in the network
- Malware and cyberweapons
- Network security
- Privacy and security Issues in Cybermatics
- Risk analysis for Cyber Physical Systems
- Security architectures
- Security and privacy in smart metering systems
- Security in the Internet of Things
- Security of critical infrastructures
- Smart grid security
- System security
- Service security
- Third-party key management mechanisms for wearable data devices
- Vulnerability assessment and metrics

Paper Submission due:    July 3, 2015 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time)
Notification to authors:    August 3, 2015
Camera ready due:    August 10, 2015

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are
simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Submissions should be
at most 9 pages in the IEEE 8,5"x11" two-column format (available at
Submissions should not be anonymized. The workshop will also consider short submissions of up to
4 pages for results that are preliminary or that simply require few pages to describe. Papers
should be submitted for review through EDAS. Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not
meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be
received by the deadline of July 3, 2015 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time). Authors of accepted
papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. Accepted and
presented papers will be included in the IEEE CNS 2015 conference proceedings and also in IEEE
Xplore. Distinguished papers will be recommended for the Special Issue on "Cyber-Physical-Social
Systems" of IEEE Transactions on Computational Social Systems.
