This November the Experts in Cybersecurity for Robotics will Gather in Spain

Aug 05, 2019

Cybersecurity for Robotics Conference 2019 will be held on November 18 and 19 and take place at the University of Deusto, in Bilbao, Spain.

Cybersecurity for robotics is a multidisciplinary research domain that is growing in relevance and importance due to the continuous growth of robotics systems and increase in cybersecurity and safety risks and challenges. Cybersecurity for Robotics Conference 2019 (CSfR2019) aims to bring together all dedicated researchers active in this domain and is about identifying risks, threats and vulnerabilities, safety considerations and solutions for robot systems due to cyber security.

CSfR2019 has opened a call for papers, abstracts, industrial and scientific contributions. Organizers are calling for abstracts, titles and contributors topics and suggestions now until August 31st. Papers and presentation proposals can be sent in to a Call for Papers by September 15th.

Preliminary Agenda

The agenda will be adapted in the following weeks and months. The topics and activities that are to be discussed and implemented can be found below.

November 18th: visits to the local robotics producers and ALIAS robotics, networking & 5 minute elevator pitches for participants or partner exchanges on the TRINITY Open Call, networking dinner.

November 19th: industry & academic keynotes, risk, holistic approaches, attacks, technical approaches, mitigation strategies, technology developments, industrial relations.

Cybersecurity for Robotics Conference 2019 will be organized in collaboration with the TRINITY project and event is conjunction with The Basque Cyber Security Days and Industry 4.0 days.

Project partner TRINITY is a network of digital innovation hubs in Advanced Robotics, Cybersecurity and Industrial IoT. The main objective of TRINITY is to extend the international network of digital innovation hubs (DIHs) composed of industrial partners, research centres and universities and to contribute to novel robotics solutions to increase agility in production by providing a significant number of use cases demonstrating the value of technologies for manufacturing companies.  A minimum of 30 demonstrators will be implemented through the calls, which will be launched in 2019 and 2020. Calls will be open for three months after their publication and each demonstrator can get up to €300,000 in funding.

About the Organizer

Leaders In Security (LSEC) is a spin off of KU Leuven, departments and research groups COSIC, Distrinet and CITIP, together with the KU Leuven technology transfer office LRD. The association was created in 2002 bringing together expertise in the domain of information security. Cybersecurity Robotics is one of the specific industrial domains of interest, next to the industry 4.0 and digital transformation and service delivery platforms.
