The official Call for Papers (presentations) for SecurityWeek’s 2017 Singapore Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference, being held April 25–27 at the Fairmont Singapore is now open.   

As the largest and longest-running cyber security-focused event series for the industrial control systems sectors, the conference caters to the energy, water, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.

With a long history, the conference has proven to bring value to attendees through the robust exchange of technical information, actual incidents, insights, and best practices to help protect critical infrastructures from cyber attacks.

Produced by SecurityWeek, the conference addresses ICS/SCADA topics including protection for SCADA systems, plant control systems, engineering workstations, substation equipment, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and other field control system devices.

The Conference is unique and has historically focused on control system end-users from various industries and what cyber vulnerabilities mean to control system reliability and safe operation. It also has a long history of having discussions of actual ICS cyber incidents.

The 2017 Conference is expected to attract hundreds professionals from the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, including large critical infrastructure and industrial organizations, military and government officials.

Through the Call for Papers, a conference committee will accept speaker submissions for possible inclusion in the program at SecurityWeek’ 2017 ICS Cyber Security Conference | Singapore.

The conference committee encourages proposals for both main track and “In Focus” sessions. All sessions are 45 minutes in length including Q&A.

The Conference Committee is particularly interested in submissions on the following topics: ICS/SCADA cyber incidents in the APAC region, results and observations from ICS/SCADA mitigation measures, results and observations from ICS/SCADA vulnerability assessments, live attack demonstrations, vulnerabilities and exploits, and results and observations from joint IT/ICS projects.

To be considered, interested speakers should submit proposals by email to events(at)www.securityweek.com with the subject line “ICSS2017 CFP” by February 28, 2017. Submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis so early submission is encouraged.

Submissions must include proposed presentation title, an informative session abstract, including learning objectives for attendees if relevant; and contact information and bio for the proposed speaker.
