International Conference on Reliability, Safety and Security of Railway Systems: Modelling, Analysis, Verification and Certification - RSSR 2016 June 28-30, 2016, Paris, France
Call for Papers

The railway industry is facing an increasing pressure to improve system safety, to decrease the production cost and time to market, to reduce the carbon emission and running cost, and to improve the system capacity. Railway systems are now being integrated into larger multi-transport networks. Such systems require an even higher degree of automation at all levels of operation. These trends dramatically increase the complexity of railway applications and pose new challenges in developing novel methods of modelling, analysis, verification and validation to ensure their reliability, safety and security, as well as in supporting novel mechanisms and procedures to help argue that the development processes are meeting the standards.

This conference will contribute to a range of key objectives. Thus, there is a pressing demand to bring together researchers and developers working on railway system reliability, security and safety to discuss how these requirements can be met in an integrated way. It is also vital to ensure that all advances in research (in both academia and industry) are driven by the real industrial needs. This will help ensure that such advances are followed by industrial deployment. Another particularly important objective is to integrate advances in research into the current development processes, and make them usable and scalable. Finally, a key goal is developing advanced methods and tools that would ensure that the systems meet the requirements imposed by the standards and in building the arguments.

Development of complex railway systems of the future requires integrated environments and methods that support different abstraction levels and different views, including systems architecture, safety analysis, security analysis, verification tools and methods.

The conference aims to bring together researchers and engineers interested in building critical railway applications and systems. This will be a working conference in which research advances will be discussed and evaluated by both researchers and engineers focusing on their potential to be deployed in industrial settings.

The topics of particular interest include
* Safety in development processes and safety management

We are interested in the submissions of three types:
* Research papers

The conference submission site is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rssr2016

The research papers will be no more than 16 pages long, the industrial experience reports and the PhD student papers no more than 10 pages long. The submissions will be formatted in the Springer LNCS format
(see www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0<http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0>).
