SAFECOMP 2012 The International Conference on Computer Safety, Reliability and Security Magdeburg 25-28 September 2012
The International Conference on Computer Safety, Reliability and Security
Magdeburg 25-28 September 2012
The 31st SAFECOMP will be held in Magdeburg from September 25th to September 28th in historic Herrenkrug Hotel.
SAFECOMP is an annual event covering new trends, technologies and experiences in the areas of safety, security and reliability of critical computer applications. 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 continously contributed to the progress of state-of-the-art in dependability of computers in critical systems. The key theme of SAFECOMP2012 will be "Virtually safe -- making system safety traceable". Depedability is an abstract concept and so are most methods for analyzing them. But engineers, reviewers and the public need to understand why a system is safe. Therefore, in 2012 we will focus on methods which make system safety traceable and understandable. Examples range from virtual reality models and scenarios through simulation and model-based analyses to approaches for tracing requirements.
