4th International Workshop on Engineering Safety and Security Systems

Welcome to ESSS 2015

Introduction of the Workshop

The International Workshop on Engineering Safety and Security Systems (ESSS) aims at contributing to the challenge of constructing reliable and secure systems. The workshop covers areas such as formal specification, type checking, model checking, program analysis/transformation, model-based testing and model-driven software construction. The workshop will bring together researchers and industry R&D expertise together to exchange their knowledge, discuss their research findings, and explore potential collaborations. The ESSS 2015 workshop is affiliated with FM 2015.

Note: Due to low number of submissions, the SAFOME workshop has been cancelled and merged into ESSS. Papers submitted to SAFOME have been moved to ESSS and reviewed jointly by SAFOME and ESSS PCs.

The main theme of the workshop is methods and techniques for constructing large reliable and secure systems. The goal of the workshop is to establish a platform for the exchange of ideas, discussion, cross-fertilization, inspiration, co-operation, and dissemination. The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • methods, techniques and tools for system safety and security.
  • methods, techniques and tools for analysis, certification, and debugging of complex safety and security systems.
  • model-based and verification-based testing.
  • emerging application domains such as cloud computing and cyber-physical systems.
  • case studies and experience reports on the use of formal methods for analyzing safety and security systems.
