In 2018, the 13th edition of the International Conference on Critical Information Infrastructures Security will be held in Kaunas, Lithuania. CRITIS 2018 will be hosted by the Vytautas Magnus University and the Lithuanian Energy Institute.


CRITIS 2018 continues the tradition of presenting innovative research and exploring new challenges in the field of critical (information) infrastructure protection (C(I)IP) and fostering the dialogue between all C(I)I stakeholders. CRITIS 2018 aims at bringing together researchers and professionals from academia, C(I)I operators, industry, defence sector and governmental organisations working in the field of the security of critical (information) infrastructures.


As in previous years, invited speakers and special events will complement a programme of original research contributions. The conference organisers invite the different research communities and stakeholders involved in C(I)IP to attend and present their progress, and encourages discussions and multi-disciplinary approaches to relevant C(I)IP problems.


The Projects' Dissemination Session will be an opportunity of dissemination for ongoing European, multinational, and national projects. These presentations will not be submitted to the reviewing process and will not lead to any publication. The purpose of this activity is sharing experiences among scientist and experts working on different projects in the C(I)IP domain.


Similarly, a session will be devoted to CI Operators / sector stakeholders. As for the previous one, one does not expect original scientific work to be presented, open problems and heuristic solutions are expected to be outlined, instead. This specific session is aimed at abridging the gap between academic knowledge and actual policy, organisational and technical applications and challenges.


We invite you to consider submitting research papers and to actively participate to CRITIS 2018.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Kaunas in September 2018!
