SAFECOMP focuses on state-of-the-art and innovative approaches to risk assessment and management from the safety, security and reliability viewpoints. The scope includes IT systems and infrastructures considered critical within their present or emerging contexts. All aspects of dependability and survivability of critical computer-based systems and infrastructures are included. In particular, SAFECOMP emphasises multidisciplinary approaches to deal with the nature of complex critical IT systems and applications.

SAFECOMP welcomes original work neither published nor submitted elsewhere on both industrial and research experience, including case studies and pilots. Full paper submissions are subjected to a formal review process.
