About the Conference

SAFECOMP is an annual event reviewing the state of the art, experiences and new trends in the areas of computer safety, reliability and security.
SAFECOMP was initiated by EWICS (European Workshop on Industrial Computer Systems) in 1979 and since then has been held in Germany (Stuttgart, Fulda, Heidelberg), USA (West Lafayette, Anaheim), UK (Cambridge, Manchester, Gatwick, York), France (Sarlat), Italy (Como, Belgirate), Austria (Vienna), Switzerland (Zürich),
Norway (Trondheim) and Poland (Poznan).
The conference focuses on critical computer applications. It is intended to be a platform for technology transfer between academia, industry and research institutions.
Papers are presented on all aspects of computer systems in which safety, reliability and security are important. Industrial sectors include, but are not restricted to medical devices, avionics, space industry, railway and road transportation, process industry, automotive industry, power plants and nuclear power plants. Contributions come from research, industrial applications and experiences and licensing.
