In association with IFIP WG13.5, Call for Papers, Workshop on:

Human Factors in the Safety and Security of Critical Systems

18 and 19 March, 2013, School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow, Scotland.

Over the last thirty years, there has been a mass of research into the central role that human factors play in determining the safety of complex systems. Studies have identified the interactions between stress, fatigue, workload and a host of performance shaping factors that influence the perception, cognition and physiology of operators, of maintenance staff and of management.

At the same time, there has been a growing recognition that security is a key factor in the dependability of critical systems. However, much attention has focused on the technical infrastructures, the software and hardware that mitigate potential threats.   Only in the last 5-10 years has there been a significant   focus on human aspects of cyber security. The existing work on this area has not always been informed by the mass of previous work in the human factors f safety critical systems. However terms such as 'situation awareness' that were originally considered in safety-related systems are increasingly being used in the context of cyber security.

This workshop will provide a common forum for researchers working on the human factors of safety and security critical systems. The following list   identifies some, but not all, of the potential topics:
. Usability studies of security or safety critical systems;
. Application of human factors studies from safety-critical to secure systems (and vice versa);
. Interactions between safety, security, dependability and the usability of complex systems;
. Common organisational issues in safety and security critical systems;
. Studies of resilience across both safety and security critical systems;
. Tools and techniques for the co-design of safety and security critical interfaces.

Submission instructions: please send abstracts to the conference chairs by 7th December 2012. Full papers are due by 30th January 2013. Selected submissions will be included after further review for a special edition of Elsevier's Reliability Engineering and System Safety journal.
