The Annual CSIIR Workshop will be held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and published by the ACM.
The aim of this year's workshop is to discuss and publish novel theoretical and empirical research focused on one or more of the Federal Cybersecurity themes. The scope of interest covers a wide range of topics related to cybersecurity and information intelligence.
This year's CSIIRW will be held concurrently with the inaugural Cyber Sciences Laboratory (CSL) workshop. See the CSL workshop site for more details.
Researchers from the
CSL consisting of nine DOE National Laboratories will be participating including:
- Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL)
- Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL)
- Argonne National Laboratory (ANL)
- Idaho National Laboratory (INL)
- Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)
- Nevada National Security Site (NNSS)
- Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)
- Sandia National Laboratories (SNL)
- Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)
We encourage all researchers and practitioners from among all communities involved with cybersecurity to also participate in the workshop and gain better understanding of the needs, stakes, and context of the ever evolving problem of securing the cyber landscape. As a result of two concurrent but separate workshops, where nine (9) national labs are represented, a major industry presence is anticipated including an industry track that will:
• Increase DOE laboratory and academia awareness and understanding of the technical challenges facing industry,
• Increase industry/academia awareness of relevant research capabilities within the DOE national laboratory system, and
• Identify and improve paths forward for collaboration.
Leading industrial and laboratory cyber security programmatic and technical leaders will be present to discuss:
• Applications and challenges to securing the cyber infrastructure for increased security and global competitiveness,
• Unique computational, game-changing innovations and expertise within DOE's national laboratories that are or can be made available to industry, and
• Opportunities for collaboration that can leverage national laboratory and industrial capabilities toward strengthening the nation's innovation capacity and drive economic growth.
Theme: Federal Cyber Security R&D Program Thrusts
Today's cyberspace is a powerful, virtual environment enabled by our global digital infrastructure that provides a bright landscape for commerce, science, education, communication, and government. The future of America's prosperity hinges on rebalancing cyberspace to mitigate threats and maximize benefits, ensuring security and privacy in a constantly changing adversarial environment.
Recognizing this great need, we request original paper submissions in four general areas derived from the Federal Cybersecurity R&D program thrusts:
Designed-In-Security (DIS) - Builds the capability to design, develop, and evolve high-assurance, software-intensive systems predictably and reliably while effectively managing risk, cost, schedule, quality, and complexity.
Tailored Trustworthy Spaces (TTS) - Provides flexible, adaptive, distributed trust environments that can support functional and policy requirements arising from a wide spectrum of activities in the face of an evolving range of threats--recognizing the user's context and evolves as the context evolves.
Moving Target (MT) - Enables us to create, analyze, evaluate, and deploy mechanisms and strategies that are diverse and that continually shift and change over time to increase complexity and cost for attackers, limit the exposure of vulnerabilities and opportunities for attack, and increase system resiliency.
Cyber Economic Incentives (CEI) - develops effective incentives to make cybersecurity ubiquitous, including incentives affecting individuals and organizations.
