Cyber-Physical Systems Security Workshop: July 22-24, Newark

"A Cyber-physical Systems Security Workshop will be held on July 22-24 in Newark, NJ. This workshop is sponsored by the Science & Technology Directorate, DHS; National Cyber Security Division, DHS, National Institute of Standards and Technology; US Department of Energy, Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD; Operations, Plans & Requirements, HQ USAF; and Logistics, Installations, & Mission Support, HQ USAF."

"In addition to presentations of selected position papers submitted by researchers from academic, industry, and national Laboratories, we also have four panels: industry, sectors, NSF, and venture capital firms. These panels provide a forum for the respective representatives to discuss their perspectives on the current state of the security of cyber-physical systems; where should the technology and science be in 5-10 years from now; why we are not there now? What are, in their opinion, some of the research challenges that are in the way of us being there now; and why do we need to be there? That is, what legitimate case that can be made to justify the needed R&D investments. Furthermore, we are in discussion with the All Hazards Consortium to have representatives from their 9 member states (NY, NJ, VA, WV, MD, PA, DC, etc.) join in a “States/Local” Panel."
