First Workshop on Resilient Cyber-physical SystemS (ReSyS) – Social Infrastructures, ICT and Mobility –

First Workshop on Resilient Cyber-physical SystemS (ReSyS)
– Social Infrastructures, ICT and Mobility –

( in conjunction with the 25th International Conference on Architecture of Computing Systems (ARCS) ( in Munich, Germany, February 28th – March 2nd, 2012

Scope Cyber-physical systems support domains of social infrastructures in monitoring and controlling their physical environment. Context data of a physical environment is being collected by sensors, digitally processed as well as stored, and as a result processes and flows of this physical environment are controlled.

However, social infrastructures are threatened by crime, terrorism, and natural disasters.A lesson learned from latest dramatically unwanted interference – Great East Japan Earthquake and its consequences – is that Cyber-physical systems cannot be protected against failures. There is always the possibility of an unexpected interference that breaks the assumptions of current risk management guidelines and standards. Resilience aims at an equilibrium of a system in case of interferences. It is not only understood in terms of resistance against threats and attacks (prevent and protect) but also in terms of the ability to mitigate them (respond). The affected system should still deliver trusted services in an hostile environment. A resilient Cyber-physical system consists of numerous components, such as sensors, working with each other in a decentralised way such that when some components fail, the system as a whole dynamically uses equivalent ones and runs the expected service continuously while at the same time fulfilling security requirements at an acceptable degree.

The workshop focuses on identifying open research questions and discussing mechanisms to establish this property. Additionally to accepted articles and their presentations, we plan to offer a combined demo, poster and video session to foster hands-on experience, discussion and collaboration among participants. Each full paper session focuses on papers with solid research results.

The topics of the workshop are but not limited to
[Context-based Security Mechanisms]
– Context-based mobile wireless authentication
– Context-based device pairing
– Securing context-aware applications
– Sensor, context and location-based authentication
– Spontaneous secure context-based device interactions
– Cyber-physical security
– Fault Forecasting

[Autonomic and Dependable Computing]
– Methods and Techniques for Self-Configuration, Self-Healing, Self-Protecting
– Distributed Systems and Agents
– Flexible and Secure Orchestration of ICT Services
– Trustworthy Organic Computing
– Fault Tolerance [Privacy in Cyber-physical Systems]
– Establishing and managing trust in cyber physical systems
– Anonymous/pseudonymous context aware mobile computation
