The purpose of SAFE 2011 is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the most recent academic and industrial developments in the theoretical and practical aspects of safety and security engineering.

Safety and security engineering, due to its special nature, is an interdisciplinary area of research and applications that brings together in a systematic view many disciplines of science and engineering, from the traditional to the most technologically advanced. The conference covers areas such as crisis management, security engineering, natural disasters and emergencies, terrorism, IT security, man-made hazards, risk management, control, protection and mitigation issues, and many others.

The meeting aims to attract papers in all related fields, in addition to those listed under the conference topics, as well as case studies describing practical experiences. Due to the multitude and variety of topics included, the list is only indicative of the themes of the expected papers. Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts in all areas of safety and security, with particular attention to integrated and interdisciplinary aspects.

Conference topics include;
- Modelling and theoretical studies
- Risk analysis, assessment and management
- Infrastructure protection
