 SAFECOMP'14 Publicity Chair
 The 33rd International Conference on Computer Safety, Reliability and 
 10-12 September 2014, Florence, Italy
 Co-located with EPEW, FMICS, FORMATS and QEST
 Since it was established in 1979 by the European Workshop on  
 Industrial Computer Systems, Technical Committee 7 on Reliability,  
 Safety and Security (EWICS TC7), SAFECOMP has contributed to the  
 progress of the state-of-the-art in de­pendable application of  
 computers in safety-related and safe­ty-critical systems.
 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.
 Safety in presence of evolution: design,  assessment and certification 
 The conference covers all aspects related to the development,  
 assessment, operation and maintenance of safety critical systems.  
 Topics include, but are not limited to:
     Fault tolerant architectures and mechanisms
     Monitoring and fault prediction infrastructures
     Risk reduction and mitigation techniques
     Security and privacy protection mechanisms
     Cyber-physical threats and vulnerability analysis
     Model-based and experimental assessment of safety, reliability and security
     Validation and verification methodologies and tools
     Human and social aspects in safety-critical systems design and analysis
     Methods for qualification, assurance and certification
     Safety and security interactions and trade-offs
     Safety and security cases
     Safety guidelines, standards and certification
 Domains of application are (but not limited to):
     Railways, automotive, aerospace and avionics
     Telecommunications and networks
     Critical infrastructures, smart grids, SCADA
     Medical devices and healthcare
     Defence, emergency & rescue
     Logistics, production automation and robotics
     Education & training
 SAFECOMP aims at providing a forum for bringing academic research and  
 industrial needs together. Therefore, we solicit two types of papers  
 to be published in the main proceedings of the conference: i) Regular  
 papers (up to 16 pages), ii) Reports on Practical Experience and Tools  
 (up to 12 pages). Submitted papers must not have been previously  
 published nor be currently submitted elsewhere. They will be reviewed  
 by at least three program committee members.
 Further opportunities to contribute to the conference are offered to  
 academics and practitioners, junior and senior researchers, by means  
 of Fast abstracts, Work in progress or Student papers (up to 2 pages).
 Please refer to Springer Author Guidelines for detailed instructions  
 on how to format your paper.
 All accepted regular papers, reports on practical experience and tools  
 will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
 series. Also, extended versions of the best papers will be considered  
 for publication in a special issue of a safety related international
