SAFETYN offers a set of technical and methodological means aimed at increasing the level of flight safety and their learning; It is in this context that "Safetyn Conferences" relating to the fields of safety and socio-technical didactics are organized.
This Call for Papers aims to bring together researchers and engineers allowing them to present their work relating to the synergy between the two concepts of Safety and Efficiency denoted by the neologism EfficienSafe.
Indeed, these two dimensions are often apprehended in contradictory ways, whether in terms of temporalities, costs or performance criteria. The aim of this conference is to help rationalize, objectify and enrich this issue. Indeed: a security action, penalizing in the short term, frequently generates useful and effective elements in a longer period, at least by the overall preservation of the actors and material means, but also by the improvement or even the creation of various functions. . Likewise, the search for efficiency - aerodynamics for example - can lead to the adoption of solutions - profiles, laws - which prove to be more reliable in their implementation.
This conference is thus expected to produce results, analyzes, models, methods, presentations of work in progress or in gestation allowing to illustrate and understand such synergies as well as to inventory their limitations.

Format and participation

The "EfficienSafe 2021" conference will be held over one day, allowing 10 presentations followed by questions; 5 articles will be presented every half day. Additional communications may be displayed (posters) depending on the quality of the articles submitted.
The proceedings will be edited and delivered electronically to the participants.
The conference will be held physically - in accordance with the health provisions in force - at Avignon airport in the Pégase building; speakers unable to attend will intervene by videoconference.


The submitted article will necessarily include two descriptions:
1) the area of ​​operation concerned;
2) the approach adopted to understand the notion of "EfficienSafe".
The relationship between the problem encountered and the solutions proposed will then be exposed.

For point 1): contributions are preferentially expected on complex socio-technical environments (see list below).
For point 2): the authors will take care to situate - even briefly - their contributions according to the four components:
- experimental: data, collection, treatment ...
- conceptual: terminology, definitions ...
- formal: mathematization, laws, properties ...
- algorithmic or software: method, program ...

Authors are invited to a certain creativity on their own work so as to bring out and then enrich the notion of EfficienSafe. Position papers are thus encouraged.

- The format of the article is as simple as possible (without numbering of sections or paragraphs, without complex formatting); final versions will follow the format guidelines that will be communicated to authors whose papers have been accepted.
- The font is of type times, 12 or equivalent.
- The bibliography will be alphabetical: [Cha00] Jean-François Chaos, Création du Monde, Gaïa-Ouranos edition, year 0000.
- The author responsible for the article is indicated.
- The length of the article is between 2 and 8 pages; the pages are numbered.

-) The article is expected in pdf format;
-) to send by email before the deadline to the two co-organizers:,

The articles will be evaluated by the scientific committee and the results communicated to the responsible author by email.
