International Conference on Reliability, Safety and Security of Railway Systems

RSSRail 2022


Call for papers

Conference chairs:

-Anne Haxthausen (Technical University of Denmark)

-Simon Collart-Dutilleul (Université Gustave Eiffel)

-Thierry Lecomte (CLEARSY)

The 4th International Conference on Reliability, Safety and Security of

Railway Systems will be held on the 1st and 2nd of June 2022, in

the International Union of Railways Congress Center, Paris.

In 2021 the RSSRail conference was replaced by a special issue of

the "Formal Aspects of Computing" journal.

RSSRail 2022 will address challenges currently faced by the railway

industry such as:

* improving system safety

* decreasing production costs and time to market

* reducing carbon emissions and running costs

* increasing the capacity of the railway.

Railway systems are now being integrated into larger multi-transport networks.

Such systems require an even higher degree of automation at all levels of

operation. These trends dramatically increase the complexity of railway

applications and pose new challenges in developing novel methods of modelling,

analysis, verification and validation to ensure their reliability,

safety and security, as well as in supporting novel mechanisms and procedures

to help make the case that development processes meet the mandated standards.

The RSSRail 2022 conference will build on the success of RSSRail 2016<https://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/rssrail2016/>

(June 28-30, Paris, France) that took place in the Maison de la RATP,

RSSRail 2017<https://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/rssrail> (November 14-16, Pistoia, Italy) and RSSRail 2019<https://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/rssrail2019>

(June 4-6, Lille, France), and will contribute to a range of key objectives.

Development of the complex railway systems of the future requires integrated

environments and methods that support different abstraction levels and

different views, including:

* systems architecture

* safety analysis

* security analysis

* verification tools and methods.

The conference aims to bring together researchers and engineers interested

in building critical railway applications and systems. This will be a working

conference in which research challenges and progress will be discussed and

evaluated by both researchers and engineers, focusing on their potential

to be deployed in industrial settings.

Topics of particular interest include:

* safety in development processes and safety management

* combined approaches to safety and security

* system and software safety analysis

* formal modelling and verification techniques

* system reliability

* validation according to the standards

* safety and security argumentation

* fault and intrusion modelling and analysis

* evaluation of system capacity, energy consumption, cost

    and their interplay

* tool and model integration, toolchains

* domain-specific languages and modelling frameworks

* model reuse for reliability, safety and security

* modelling for maintenance strategy engineering.


We can accept three types of submission:

* Research papers – not more than 16 pages in length

* Industrial experience reports – not more than 10 pages in length

* PhD student papers – not more than 10 pages in length.
