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.

SAFECOMP is an annual event covering the state-of-the-art, experience

and new trends in the areas of safety, security and reliability of

critical computer applications.

SAFECOMP provides ample opportunity to exchange insights and

experience on emerging methods, approaches and practical solutions. It

is a single track conference without parallel sessions, allowing easy



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 tradeoffs

* 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


Design, verification, and assurance of space systems.


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


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


All papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee

members. Papers must not have been previously published or

concurrently submitted elsewhere.


All accepted papers will be published by Springer in the LNCS series

(Lecture Notes on Computer Science). Submitted papers must conform to

Springer LNCS author guidelines ( In addition,

extended versions of the best papers will be considered for

publication in a special issue of a safety-related international



It is planned to have one day for workshops. Workshop proposals are

welcome. The proposals must be sent by email to the SAFECOMP17

Workshop Chair ( They should include

planned scope and contents, Program Committee, and duration (one full

or half day). SAFECOMP Workshop Proceedings are planned if a properly

reviewing process is implemented.

A dedicated space will be available for a Technical Exhibition in the

area where coffee breaks and lunches take place. Organizations wishing

to present their products or projects are invited to request further

information from the conference secretariat.
