Since it was established in 1979 by the European Workshop on  
Industrial Computer Systems, Technical Committee 7 on Reliability,  
Safety and Security (EWICS TC7), SAFECOMP 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. Major topics include, but are not  
limited to:

* Fault-tolerant and resilient hardware and sofware architectures
* Error detection and error recovery mechanisms
* Distributed and real-time monitoring and control
* Security and privacy protection mechanisms
* Safety/security risk assessment
* Model-based design and analysis
* Risk reduction and mitigation techniques
* Formal methods, verification and validation
* In-the-loop and model-based testing
* Methods for qualification, assurance and certification
* Dependability analysis using simulation and experimental measurement
* Human and social aspects in dependability analysis
* Cyber-physical threats and vulnerability analysis
* Safety guidelines, standards and certification
* Safety and security interactions and tradeoffs
* Safety and security cases

Domains of application include (but are not limited to):
* Railways, automotive, aerospace and avionics
* Telecommunication and networks
* Critical infrastructures, smart grids, SCADA
* Medical devices and healthcare
* Defense, emergency & rescue
* Logistics, production automation and robotics, off-shore technology
* Education & training

It is planned to have one day as a tutorial and workshop day. Tutorial  
and workshop proposals are welcome.
Information about submissions are available at the conference website.  
A dedicated space will be available for a Technical Exhibition in the  
communication area where coffee breaks and lunches take place.  
Organisations wishing to present their products or projects are  
invited to request further information from the conference secretariat.

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 three types of papers: regular papers (up to 12 pages),  
practical experience reports and tools (up to 8 pages) and fast  
abstracts/Work in Progress papers (2 pages). 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 Regular papers, Practical Experience Reports and tools  
will be published by Springer in the LNCS series. In addition,  
extended versions of the best papers will be considered for  
publication in a special issue of a safety-related international

Trondheim and the Mid-Norway region are steeped in both history and  
today's world. Think of it as an ancient city with a modern soul.  
Trondheim was Norway's first capital city, founded more than 1,000  
years ago, in 997 - but now instead of Viking raiders and Hanseatic  
traders, you will find jazz musicians and an international student  
body savouring Trondheim city life. The city's cafes spill out onto  
cobblestone streets lined with colourful wooden buildings, while the  
twin towers and copper-clad spire of Europe's northernmost gothic  
cathedral frame the southern skyline. Trondheim is the leader among  
Norwegian regions for technological R&D activity. This activity is  
strongly oriented toward high technology with the electronics  
manufacturers such as Atmel, communication devices (Nordic  
Semiconductors) being world leaders,
as well as software providers such as the major Web-search-tech  
companies and others complement the traditional Norwegian research  
strengths such as in Oil&Gas, marine technologies and fish and  
seafarming tecnologies. The Norwegian University of Science and  
Technology, NTNU, has its main campus almost inside the city-centre.
The conference will take place in Scandic Nidelven hotel, a modern  
conference-hotel, with sights and attractions such as the Nidaros  
Cathedral, Bakklandet, and Gamle Bybro within short walking distance.  
It has a beautiful location by the river Nidelven, situated next to  
one of Trondheim's most popular areas with many restaurants and cafés.  
Buses from the airport takes 30 minutes and stops nearby.
