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

  • Railways, automotive, space, avionics & process industries
  • Highly automated and autonomous systems
  • Telecommunication and networks
  • Safety-related applications of smart systems and IoT
  • Critical infrastructures, smart grids, SCADA
  • Medical devices and healthcare
  • Surveillance, 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:

  • Regular papers (up to 14 pages)
  • Practical experience reports and tool papers (up to 8 pages)

Industrial contributions are especially invited. All papers will be reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Papers must not have been previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere. Papers should be electronically submitted via the EasyChair submission system, using the link provided above. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference (regular registration).

A specific call for Position Papers (up to 4 pages) and respective submission guidelines and dates will be made available later.
