Table of Contents

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.


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
  • 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 and tools
  • 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 trade-offs
  • Safety and security cases
  • Multi-concern dependability assurance and standardization

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


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.
