                     TIPS'16 Workshop  http://www.ntnu.edu/web/safecomp2016/tips16
                1st International workshop on TIming Performance in Safety Engineering
                                               20 September 2016, Trondheim, Norway

The purpose of the TIPS Workshop is to provide a forum for both
practitioners and researchers to present contributions and
share ideas, experiences and solutions to concretely connect or
integrate performance design engineering and safety engineering
activities. Industrial participants are invited to report on
efforts applying timing and performance verification techniques
in their context of safety or certification, share their
insights, and to provide feedback to research priorities and
roadmaps. This workshop will also encourage discussions about
issues and opportunities to apply timing performance and safety

The TIPS workshop aims to promote discussions, close
interactions, cross fertilization of ideas and synergies across
the breadth of the timing performance and safety (and security)
research communities, as well as to attract industrials from
different domains with a specific interest in timing
performance and safety engineering.

Topics include but are not limited to:

·         Comparative evaluation of existing integrated timing performance and safety assessment or verification techniques.

·         Design modelling languages, methods, techniques and processes for timing performance and safety engineering and combining them.

·         New ways for timing performance certification.

·         Design architecture evaluation approaches considering timing and safety concerns, including architecture optimizations.

·         Performance patterns or solutions for efficient safety and security design.

·         Performance predictability for multi-core platforms under safety concerns.

·         Virtualization techniques for safe and efficient resource sharing.

·         Case studies and industrial experience on integrating, combining timing performance and safety engineering activities and certification.

·         Discussions on issues and opportunities to integrate, combine timing performance and safety engineering, certifications standards, rules and authorities.

·         Demonstrations of techniques or tools to apply timing performance in safety or certification processes.

TIPS'16 Workshop:              20 September, 2016

Submission Guidelines
Papers must describe, in English, original work that has not
been published or submitted elsewhere. The submission must
conform to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines:
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs (same format as the
conference papers). Each paper will be reviewed by at least 3
PC members. The authors will be notified about acceptance
before the SAFECOMP 2016 early registration deadline. We
solicit two types of submissions:

·         Regular papers (up to 15 pages) describing original and unpublished work within the scope of the workshop.

·         Short papers (up to 6 pages) describing work in progress or less mature results.

Accepted papers will be distributed to the attendees in the workshop proceedings and in the workshop web page.
All papers should be submitted in PDF format through Easychair.
