(EPESec 2021)

to be held in conjunction with the 16th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security

(ARES 2021 – http://www.ares-conference.eu)

August 17 – August 20, 2021, Vienna, Austria


EPESec 2021 workshop aims at collecting the most relevant ongoing research efforts in the EPES digital security field. It also serves as a forum for relevant projects in order to disseminate their security-related results, boost cooperation, knowledge sharing and follow-up synergies, and foster the development of the EPES Security Community, composed of security experts and practitioners.

The workshop is co-organized by the following H2020 Projects:

CYBER-TRUST project: https://cyber-trust.eu/
EnergyShield https://energy-shield.eu/
FORESIGHT project: https://foresight-h2020.eu/

The PHOENIX project is a European Union funded collaborative project improving the cyber security of the European electrical power energy systems (EPES), i.e. the so called Smart Grid. PHOENIX aims to offer a cyber-shield armour to European EPES infrastructure enabling cooperative detection of large scale, cyber-human security and privacy incidents and attacks, guarantee the continuity of operations and minimize cascading effects in the infrastructure itself, the environment, the citizens and the end-users at reasonable cost.
