SAFECOMP 2022

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

September 6-9, 2022
Munich, Germany

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

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?

Join the 41st edition of SafeComp
