- Development, verification and assessment of intelligent and autonomous safety-critical systems
- Formal modelling, verification and validation
- Model-driven engineering
- Resilient and fault-tolerant hardware and software architectures
- Fault detection and recovery mechanisms
- Distributed and real-time monitoring and control
- Security and privacy protection mechanisms
- Safety/security co-engineering and risk assessment
- Probabilistic verification and validation
- Testing, verification and validation methods & tools
- Qualification, assurance and certification methods & tools
- Data-driven techniques for engineering dependable systems
- Cyber-physical threats and vulnerability analysis
- Safety and security guidelines, standards and certification
- Safety and security assurance cases
- DevOps and agile development methods

Domains of application include (but are not limited to):
