DYNABIC is co-organising the IEEE Workshop on Electrical Power and Energy System Security, Privacy and Resilience (EPES– SPR) co-located to the IEEE CSR – Cybersecurity and Resilience.

In anticipating the critical issues of EPES/SG, both academia and industry have developed appropriate countermeasures, considering the advances in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the networking domains. AI and especially Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) allow the implementation of detection mechanisms capable of discriminating malicious behaviors as well as zero-day vulnerabilities. Emerging solutions in this sector include Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems and Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS). Other emblematic technologies that can mitigate or even prevent cyberattacks are honeypots, Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and intentional islanding.

The workshop focus is going beyond this state of practice and is requesting prospective authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished contributions from a broad range of topics, which include but are not limited to the following:

› Intrusion/anomaly detection and mitigation in EPES/SG
› SDN/NFV-based architectures for resilient EPES/SG
› EPES/SG honeypots and honeynets
› SIEM systems in EPES/SG
› Self-healing in EPES/SG
› Federated learning solutions for anomaly and cyberattack detection in EPES/SG
› Security management and risk assessment in EPES/SG
› Threat modelling and vulnerability analysis in EPES
› Security management and risk assessment in EPES/SG
› Emerging privacy-preserving mechanisms and techniques in EPES/SG

The workshop is also supported by the EU Horizon projects: ELECTRON, TERMINET and AI4CYBER.
