Present CFP : 2018

SAFECOMP was established in 1979 by the European Workshop on Industrial Computer Systems, Technical Committee 7 on Reliability, Safety and Security (EWICS TC7). Since then, it has contributed to the progress of the state-of-the-art in dependable application of computers in safety-related and safety-critical systems.
SAFECOMP is an annual event covering the state-of-the-art, experience and new trends in the areas of safety, security and reliability of critical computer applications.
SAFECOMP provides ample opportunity to exchange insights and experience on emerging methods, approaches and practical solutions. It is a single track conference without parallel sessions, allowing easy networking.

The conference covers all aspects related to the development, assessment, operation and maintenance of safety-related and safety-critical computer systems. Topics include, but are not limited to:
Fault-tolerant and resilient hardware and software architectures and tools for all concerned topics;
Fault detection and recovery mechanisms;
Distributed and real-time monitoring and control;
Security and privacy protection mechanisms for safety applications;
Safety/security risk assessment;
Model-based analysis, design, and assessment;
Formal methods for verification, validation, and fault tolerance;
Probabilistic verification and validation;
In-the-loop and model-based testing;
Validation and verification methodologies;
Methods for qualification, assurance and certification;
Compositional verification and certification;
Architecture-driven assurance of safety and security;
Dependability analysis using simulation and experimental measurement;
Cyber-physical threats and vulnerability analysis;
Safety guidelines, standards and certification;
Safety and security interactions and tradeoffs;
Safety and security cases;
Multi-concern dependability assurance and standardization;
Industrial experience and case studies.

Domains of application include (but are not limited to):
Railways, automotive, space, avionics, nuclear and process industries;
Autonomous systems, advanced robotics, construction engines and off-road vehicles;
Telecommunication and networks;
Safety-related applications of smart systems and IoT (Internet of Things, Smart Anything Everywhere);
Critical infrastructures, smart grids, SCADA;
Medical devices and healthcare;
Defense, emergency & rescue;
Logistics, industrial automation, off-shore technology;
Education & training.

Cross and intra domain reuse of engineering and certification artefacts: challenges and opportunities

The tradition of SAFECOMP is to act as a platform for bringing academic research and industrial needs together. Therefore, industrial contributions and real-world experience reports are explicitly invited. We solicit two types of papers:
1-regular papers (up to 14 pages),
2-practical experience reports and tool reports (up to 8 pages)
Papers exceeding the page limit will be excluded from the review process. All papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Papers must not have been previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere.
Papers can be submitted through easychair.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer in the LNCS series (Lecture Notes on Computer Science). Submitted papers must conform to Springer LNCS author guidelines ( In addition, extended versions of the best papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of a safety-related international journal.

It is planned to have one day for workshops. Workshop proposals are welcome. The proposals must be sent by email to the SAFECOMP 2018 Workshop Chair ( They should include planned scope and contents, Program Committee, and duration (one full or half day). Inclusion in the SAFECOMP Workshop Proceedings are planned, provided that a proper reviewing process is implemented.
A dedicated space will be available for a Technical Exhibition in the area where coffee breaks and lunches take place. Organizations wishing to present their products or projects are invited to request further information from the conference secretariat.
