Submission Deadline TBD

Call For Papers

Organised by:

Wessex Institute of Technology, UK
University of Antwerp, Belgium
University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’, Italy

Supported by:

WIT Transactions on the Built Environment
International Journal of Safety and Security Engineering

The success of the first three International Conferences on Safety and Security Engineering held in Rome in 2005, Malta in 2007 and Rome in 2009, has prompted the organisers to reconvene the meeting in 2011. The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the most recent academic and industrial developments in the theoretical and practical aspects of safety and security engineering.

Safety and security engineering, due to its special nature, is an interdisciplinary area of research and applications that brings together in a systematic view many disciplines of science and engineering, from the traditional to the most technologically advanced. The conference covers areas such as crisis management, security engineering, natural disasters and emergencies, terrorism, IT security, man-made hazards, risk management, control, protection and mitigation issues, and many others.

The meeting aims to attract papers in all related fields, in addition to those listed under the conference topics, as well as case studies describing practical experiences. Due to the multitude and variety of topics included, the list is only indicative of the themes of the expected papers. Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts in all areas of safety and security, with particular attention to integrated and interdisciplinary aspects.

International Journal of Safety and Security Engineering
The International Conference on Safety and Security Engineering is closely associated with the journal of the same name launched by WIT Press in association with the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’ and the Wessex Institute of Technology. The journal, which is published quarterly, includes papers by colleagues including research and practical applications. A paper and digital publication, the latter is Open Access to better disseminate the latest research and applications to the international community involved in Safety and Security.
