SafeComp 2022: New frontiers of safety assurance

The 41th International Conference on Computer Safety, Reliability and Security

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. This year, the key theme of the conference is “New frontiers of safety assurance”.

Software plays a more relevant role for safety assurance than ever before, including assurance against safety incidents due to security vulnerabilities. Open Architectures enabling intensive connectivity, open systems of systems, cloud-based control, over-the-air-updates, possibly including third-party-vendor apps lead to new challenges for safety and security assurance.

This leads to the following questions to be discussed at SafeComp2022:

  • Is there a red line limiting the technological freedom acceptable from a safety viewpoint and how can we identify it?
  • How do we assure safety and safety-related security in spite of these new technologies without impeding their benefits?
  • Do we need new principles and paradigms for safety and security assurance?

The 41st edition of this long-running conference will be hosted by Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS in cooperation with Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU).

We look forward to your participation. Join experienced delegates from industry and academia at SafeComp 2022 to discuss the state-of-the-art in the safety, security and reliability of critical computer systems and applications. With a comprehensive single-track program SafeComp 2022 will allow easy networking.
