Working Group (WG) Resilience of critical infrastructuresaims at creating a “hub” and defining a roadmap to increase the resilience of critical infrastructures and the current capacity of practitioners and stakeholders in exchanging best practices and innovative ideas on this topic. The key challenge in resilience of critical infrastructures is to provide tools and trust allowing a new governance model. To date, Critical Infrastructures (which constitute the system of systems producing vital services to citizens) are analyzed, controlled and managed separately (each operator manage its network) linearizing a problem (i.e. the control of a "system of system") which is not linear, due to the tight dependencies linking the infrastructures. New governance of the cities and of their asset should provide technological tools allowing to analyze and control CI as a unique system of systemsand, hence, a "higher" level governance of the whole urban "system of systems". The WG aims at involving a multidisciplinary community where many different domains collaborate to tackle a specific problem under different viewpoints. The role that WGcould play in this context is to reduce the gap between technology designers and providers with stakeholders which, in the context, are: cities, CI operators, public authorities committed in emergency and crisis management, city planners etc. A list of a not-exclusive list of scientific topics follows: Conceptual Modelling of Critical Infrastructures Agents-based Simulations Dependency Analysis Situation-awareness Big-data analytics Cyber-security in Critical Infrastructures Systems Critical Information Infrastructure Protection Social Networks Analysis for Critical Infrastructures Protection Early warning systems Monitoring systems Governance Models Critical Infrastructures Ontologies Complex Networks for Critical Infrastructures Decision Support Systems Disaster and emergency management Technological networks Water systems Electrical networks Socio-technical systems
