The Open Call Type B applications are under evaluation EU-CIP Knowledge Hub REGISTER NOW


The call for papers for the 4th International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Security for Critical Infrastructures Protection (CPS4CIP 2023) is now open. CPS4CIP’23 will be co-located with the 28th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2023) which will take place in the Hague, the Netherlands, on September 25-29, 2023.

CPS4CIP 2023 is supported by EU-CIP and the projects of the European Cluster for Securing Critical Infrastructures (ECSCI).


The workshop is dedicated to cyber-physical security for protecting critical infrastructures that support finance, energy, health, air transport, communication, gas, and water. Its objective is to bring together security researchers and practitioners from the various verticals of critical infrastructures (such as the financial, energy, health, air transport, communication, gas and water domains) to rethink cyber- physical security in the light of latest technology developments, e.g., Cloud Computing, Blockchain, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet-of-Things (IoT). Specifically, value will be given to contributions focusing on the interplay between the digital and physical aspects of security problems and capable of fostering new, intelligent, collaborative and more dynamic approaches to detect, prevent and mitigate security incidents.
