Short description

Cyber ranges are rapidly rising in importance within the security domain, emerging as the most realistic environment for cybersecurity training and security assessments. CyberRange.IT aims at gathering both public and private stakeholders, such as academic researchers and industry practitioners, who want to share their experience about developing, maintaining, and using cyber ranges.

Scope and significance

The workshop aims at fostering the interaction between members of the national and international research community working on the creation and usage of cyber ranges. This includes industrial and academic researchers and other professionals who are actively working in the cyber range field. Participants are welcome to present their ongoing initiatives and experience either as talks or demonstrations. Commercial products presentation will not be considered for presentation.

Submission and selection

Submissions can be in different formats including, abstracts, slides, demos, and short papers. In general, for each proposal, the authors must submit 2 pages describing the presentation content. Presentations can include live demonstrations of tools and techniques. Also, walkthroughs of attack scenarios are welcome. The program committee will be in charge of the review of the proposed presentation and of the related selection process. The committee will consider, in particular, the potential interest of the expected audience for the presentations. There will be no official publication for the presented works, but we will make available on the website the material that the authors want to share with the workshop community.

Dissemination plan

We will disseminate the workshop activities through the web site and by involving the ITASEC community.

Expected number of participants: 10 – 20


The workshop will consist of two presentation sessions (1,5 hours each) and a round table session to close the event (1 hour).
