Cyber Resilience Workshop

Submit a paper >>

The 2022 IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS): Cyber Resilience Workshop will be held in Austin, TX, USA, on 5 October 2022.

The workshop will focus on recent advances in areas such as machine learning and AI for cyber resilience, zero-trust architecture, and moving target defense. It will give the audience an overview of cyber resilience and provide a platform to discuss new research directions. We seek submissions from cyber security experts in academia, industry, and government labs presenting novel research results in the architecture, design principles, and metrics for cyber-resilient systems.

Suggested topics of interest are given below, but are not limited to:

  • Theoretic foundations of cyber resilience
  • Formal methods for cyber resilience
  • Autonomous cyber defense and intelligence
  • Self-adaptive cyber resilience
  • Attack-resilient architectures
  • Moving target defense
  • Resilient multi-agent collaboration and human interactions
  • Zero-trust security and resilience
  • Cyber-physical system resilience (including Industrial Control Systems, Internet of Things, Intelligent Transportation Systems, and Smart Grids)
  • Human factors in resilience
  • Trust management
  • Economics of cyber resilience
  • Dynamic risk management
  • Resilient 5G communication systems
  • Critical infrastructure cyber resilience
