As Large AI Systems and Models (LAMs) become increasingly pivotal in a wide array of applications, their potential impact on the privacy and cybersecurity of critical infrastructure becomes a pressing concern. LAMPS is dedicated to addressing these unique challenges, fostering a dialogue on the latest advancements and ethical considerations in enhancing the privacy and cybersecurity of LAMs, particularly in the context of critical infrastructure protection.

LAMPS will bring together global experts to dissect the nuanced privacy and cybersecurity challenges posed by LAMs, especially in critical infrastructure sectors. This workshop will serve as a platform to unveil novel techniques, share best practices, and chart the course for future research, with a special emphasis on the delicate balance between advancing AI technologies and securing critical digital and physical systems.

Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that one of the authors will register and present the paper at the workshop. Proceedings of the workshop will be available on a CD to the workshop attendees and will become part of the ACM Digital Library.

The archival papers will be included in the workshop proceedings. Due to time constraints, accepted papers will be selected for presentation as either talk or poster based on their review score and novelty. Nonetheless, all accepted papers should be considered as having equal importance.

Authors are responsible for obtaining appropriate publication clearances. Attendance and presentation by at least one author of each accepted paper at the workshop are mandatory for the paper to be included in the proceedings.
