Call For Papers

After previous editions in Toulouse (2011), Bordeaux (2012), and Versailles (2013), the 4th International Symposium on Model-Based Safety and Assessment (IMBSA 2014) will be held in Munich, Germany.
This forum aims at bringing together engineers, software specialists and researchers working on all aspects of model-based safety assessment.

The goal of IMBSA is to provide a forum, where brand new ideas from academia, leading edge technology and industrial experiences are brought together. The objectives are to present experiences and tools, to share ideas, and to consolidate the community. We solicit contributions concerning any domain of safety critical application using model-based methods. This includes, but is not limited to:

• System Dependability Modeling and Assessment
• Domain Specific Modeling Formalisms (AltaRica, ...)
• Model-Driven Engineering Methodologies
• System Architecture and Optimization
• System Engineering Modeling Tools with Safety Assessment (SysML...)
• Case Studies and Practical Experiences
• Traceability of (Safety)-Requirements
• Specification of Safety Requirements and Patterns
• Certification and Standardization of and with Model-Based Methods
• Integration in Interdisciplinary Processes

IMBSA is looking back at a rich tradition of successfully combining research with a high number of industrial contributions. It shows that bridging the gap between basic research and industrial practice can be done effectively through interactive presentation of tools and methods. To take this into account, the conference will – in contrast to solely scientific events – be split into three main parts:

• a scientific part, where newest findings are presented by renown scientists (DAY 1)
• a tools and tutorials parts, in which consolidated research achievements are interactively demonstrated (DAY 2)
• and one part reporting on experiences and hot challenges in industrial practice of safety critical systems (DAY 3)

This way, participants from the industry learn about new tools and techniques, while research groups and spin-off companies can present their achievements to an interested audience. Also industrial contributors and young spin-offs can convince future customers of their tools in this mixed environment. We believe, that this mixture of conventional talks about newest achievements, presentation of practical experiences and interactive learning allows for fruitful discussions, exchange of information as well as future cooperation.

For each academic and industrial submission, an extended abstract (2 pages) should be submitted by May 31th, 2014, using the EasyChair website ( Academic papers should not exceed 14 pages. Industrial experiences reports may either be submitted as short papers (8 pages) or full papers (14 pages). Both forms of submission have to comply with the LNCS style format and be handed in by 15th of June. For tutorials and tool demonstration, extended abstracts (2 pages) are sufficient but full length papers may also be accepted. All papers will be subject to a full review.

All accepted papers will be published as an Springer LNCS proceedings. The proceedings are planned as pre-conference proceedings and the printed books should be available at the conference day (final approval pending). To be considered for the proceedings, at least one author of each paper has to participate at the conference. Scientific and industrial experience will be presented at the conference in oral form. Tools and tutorials will be presented in special slots (within the main program) and may be presented in an interactive manner.

Abstract submission deadline: May 31,2014
Full paper submission deadline: June 15,2014
Notification of acceptance: July 30,2014
Camera-ready submission: August 10,2014
