Since it was established in 1979,
SAFECOMP has contributed to the progress of the state-of-the-art in dependable
applications of computer systems. 

SAFECOMP is an annual event covering the
state-of-the-art, experience and new trends in the areas of computer safety,
reliability and security regarding dependable applications of computer systems. 

SAFECOMP provides ample opportunity to
exchange insights and experience on emerging methods and practical applications
across the borders of different disciplines.

Scope of the Conference

SAFECOMP focuses on safety-critical computer applications and is a platform
for knowledge and technology transfer between academia, industry and research
institutions. Papers are invited on all aspects of dependability and survivability
of critical computer-based systems of systems and infrastructures. Due to
the increasing integration and evolution of hybrid systems, SAFECOMP emphasises
work in relation to human factors, system evolution, dependability and survivability.
Nowadays practical experience points out the need of multidisciplinary approaches
to deal with the nature of critical complex settings.

SAFECOMP, therefore, is open to multidisciplinary work enhancing our understanding
across disciplines.

SAFECOMP welcomes original work neither published nor submitted elsewhere
on both industrial and research experience. Examples of industrial and research
topics include:

Industrial sectors:  Accident Reports and Management - Aerospace
and Avionics - Automotive - Banking and E-commerce - Bluetooth Devices -
Critical National Information Infrastructures - Distributed and Real-time
Systems - Firewalls - Medical Systems - Networking and Telecommunication -
