Are you interested in contributing to advancing the technology, understanding, or applicability of survivability engineering of critical infrastructures? You're invited to participate in the Smart Grid Survivability Workshop, part of the new IEEE Critical Infrastructure Survivability Workshop (CISW) Series, October 13-14, 2010 in the Washington, D.C. area.
CISW-SG 2010 is the first in a planned series of IEEE-sponsored workshops on research and engineering challenges associated with protecting those infrastructures for which significant damage, and the lack of availability for extended periods of time, would have catastrophic impacts on society. The Critical Infrastructure Survivability Workshops provide a forum for researchers, practitioners (such as utilities and vendors), and sponsors to explore the area of survivable critical infrastructures, the nature of the unique (and sometimes not-so-unique) problems associated with engineering such systems in a secure and survivable manner, and promising approaches to finding solutions to these problems.
Who Should Participate?
People with diverse backgrounds and interests who can contribute to advancing the technology, understanding, or applicability of survivability engineering of critical infrastructures are encouraged to participate. Desired participants include, but are not limited to, researchers, practitioners in system and software engineering, research sponsors, domain experts in electric power systems, policy planners, regulators, and other stakeholders. An ongoing goal of the workshop series is to continue to define and encourage the formation of communities of interest in the various application and research areas of survivability engineering that can continue to collaborate and share results to the benefit of all who are working toward, and are dependent upon, the survivability of critical infrastructures.
Registration Deadline: October 11, 2010
CISW-SG Workshop: October 13-14, 2010
