Ninth Annual Industrial Control System Security (ICSS) Workshop

December 5, 2023 - Austin, Texas

The ninth Industrial Control System Security (ICSS) Workshop will be held on Tuesday, December 5, 2023, in conjunction with the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC). ACSAC will be held at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin, Texas.

Call for Papers. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems (ICS) monitor and control a wide range of critical industrial and infrastructure processes, such as water treatment, power generation and transmission, oil and gas refining, and manufacturing. Furthermore, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is rapidly expanding the interconnectivity of ICS environments and introducing many new threats. These environments have been identified as a key target of more generic threats (ransomware, e.g., CL0p), along with more recent tailored nation-state threats targeting electric transmission and distribution systems (e.g., COSMICENERGY).

The essential requirement for high availability in SCADA and industrial control systems, along with the use of resource-constrained computing devices, legacy operating systems, and proprietary software applications, limits the applicability of traditional information security solutions. The goal of this workshop is to explore new techniques that are more effective and efficient at improving the security and resilience of critical control systems in the face of emerging threats. Papers of interest, including (but not limited to) the following subject categories, are solicited:

IIoT security

Intrusion detection and prevention

Emerging threats to ICS

Vulnerability analysis and risk management

Digital forensics for ICS/PLCs

Techniques for engineering high(er) assurance ICSs

ICS-oriented cybersecurity education

Performance evaluation of security methods and tools in control systems

Innovative ICS/SCADA testbed designs

Supply chain vulnerabilities and protections

Modeling ICS security and resilience properties

Technical Paper Submissions

Submissions should be 6-10 pages, using the double-column ACM proceedings format (acmart) template available at, with the [sigconf, anonymous] options. Two additional pages can be used for the Appendix. Note that the reviewers are not expected to read the Appendix.

All submissions must be anonymous.
