MBAT co-hosting SAFECOMP 2013 DECS Workshop

MBAT co-hosting the ERCIM/EWICS Workshop on Dependable Embedded and Cyberphysical Systems at SAFECOMP 2013

Safecomp is one of the leading conferences on Safety, Reliability and Security of (industrial) computer systems since 1979. 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 one-stream conference without parallel sessions, allowing easy networking. This year, SAFECOMP takes place in Toulouse at CNRS, from September 24 – 27, at LAAS – CNRS (

Since 2006, the Workshop on Dependable Embedded Systems is organized on a day preceding or following the main conference at the same location thus extending the conference, so there is already a tradition. This year, the workshop takes place on September 24, 2013, as a full-day workshop. Sessions are planned on

  • Dependable and resilient embedded systems,
  • Autonomous Systems and Robotics,
  • Systems-of-Systems,

covering aspects from design, development, testing, verification and validation, certification, maintenance and standardization. This is a workshop, and to be distinct from the SAFECOMP conference mainstream, it allows reports on on-going work aiming at hopefully fruitful discussions and experience exchange. Reports on European or national research projects (as part of the required dissemination) as well as industrial experience reports are welcome.

You want to present your ideas and results? What do you have to provide?

Workshop proceedings will be provided as complementary booklet to the SAFECOMP Proceedings, printed by LAAS-CNRS. Papers (6-8 pages) will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. Deadlines are:

  • May 31, 2013:   Full papers in Springer LNCS format as for the main conference proceedings, via easychair ( or by email to chairpersons
  • June 15, 2013:  Notification of authors
  • June 28, 2013:   Final camera-ready papers

The International Programme Committee is composed of selected EWICS and ERCIM members, led by the workshop organizers.

The full Call for Contributions is available on the SAFECOMP 2013 Website (under Workshops and Tutorials, ERCIM/EWICS DECS, )
