Digital Bond’s 5th Annual SCADA Security Scientific Symposium [S4] will be January 19 – 20, 2011 in beautiful Miami Beach. The Call for Papers is out.
Two things I want to highlight about the S4 Call for Papers.
1. Our speaker program is the most generous in the control system security event space. Of course we waive the registration fee, but we also pay for the hotel right on the beach for up to three nights and provide a $400 stipend to help cover airfare and other expenses. Our hope is that even a humble student will be able to present at S4, and there they will meet a who’s who in the field and make great connections.
2. We hunt for papers. This is not a refereed, blind process. We actively search for the best research to fill out the program. So if you know of someone doing great work please tell us about it, and we will chase it down.
To get you in the S4 spirit, we have a special half price offering on the previous four years Proceedings Books. Get all four for $200 at Amazon.com. The books have highly technical and detailed articles on control system vulns, security metrics for control systems, control system protocol analysis and much more
