1st IEEE Workshop on Security and Privacy in Cybermatics (SPiCy 2015)
Florence, Italy - September 30, 2015

** Special discount for combined registration (conference+workshop) **


In the modern age Cybermatics is differentiating itself by designing the
physical and social places into the cyber space to accomplish the union
of three spaces: (i) Physical Cyberworld, (ii) Social Cyberworld, and
(iii) Thinking Cyberworld. In the cyber space, everywhere cyber-nodes
are significantly independent from the space-time limitations that
exist in the physical space. Along with the development of intelligent
systems, Cybermatics has brought a wide area of open issues during the
cyber interaction, physical perception, social correlation, and
cognitive thinking. Currently, Cybermatics is still in its initial stage,
and it is expected that Cybermatics will lead industrialization and IT
applications to a new level and will significantly change the way of
producing, living, and even thinking of the mankind. Cybermatics will
transform how we interact with and control the physical world around us,
just in the same way as the Internet transformed how we interact and
communicate with one another and revolutionized how and where we access

Cyber-physical systems are subject to threats stemming from increasing
dependence on computer and communication technologies. Cyber security
threats exploit the increased complexity and connectivity of critical
infrastructure systems, placing the Nation's security, economy, public
safety, and health at risk. This workshop aims to represent an
opportunity for cyber security researchers, practitioners, policy makers,
and users to exchange ideas, research findings, techniques and tools,
raise awareness, and share experiences related to all practical and
theoretical aspects of Cybermatics security issues.

IEEE SPiCy 2015 will be held in Florence, Italy, on September 30, 2015
in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Communications and
Network Security (CNS 2015).

The workshop will be a 1-day event, featuring one keynote talk
(Wenjing Lou, Virginia Tech, USA) and SPiCy technical program (9 papers).
