July 15, 2014

SecurityWeek reported the official Call for Papers for the 2014 Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference, to be held October 20 - 23 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Now in its 12th year, the conference is the foremost and longest- running cyber security-focused event series for the industrial control systems sectors.

According to a release, the conference will cater to the energy, water, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.

Produced by SecurityWeek, the conference will address 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.

Through the Call for Papers, a conference committee will accept speaker submissions for possible inclusion in the program at the 2014 ICS Cyber Security Conference.

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

All speakers must adhere to the 100 percent vendor neutral / no commercial policy of the conference. If speakers cannot respect this policy, they should not submit a proposal. For questions regarding speaking opportunities please contact the events team at ICS2014@securityweek.com.

"The IT community and ICS community are now bridging the security gap," said Joe Weiss, founder of the ICS Cyber Security Conference, which was recently acquired by SecurityWeek. "The value to attendees at the conference is inherent with the robust exchange of technical information, actual incidents, insights and best practices to help protect critical infrastructures from cyber attacks."
