security-related heterogeneous aspects of
Critical Information Infrastructures.
We invite research papers, work-in-progress reports, R&D projects
surveying works and industrial experiences describing significant
advances in the following (non-exclusive) areas of Critical
Infrastructures for which we plan to have sessions:

Furthermore, the following topics are within the scope of CRITIS?07:

- Continuity of Services and Resiliency
- Dependable Infrastructure Communications
- Internet-based remote control
- Forensic Techniques
- Incident Response
- Network Survivability
- Trust Models in Critical Scenarios
- Security Logistics

* Instructions for paper submission

All submissions will be subjected to a thorough blind review by at
three reviewers. Papers should be up to 12 pages in English, including
bibliography and well-marked appendices.
As in the case of CRITIS?06, it is planned that post-proceedings are
