SSCS 2018: System Safety and Cyber Security

29 – 31 October 2018 | IET London: Savoy Place

Call for Contributions deadline: 15 June 2018

The call for contributions is open until 15 June, and we are seeking contributions on these key themes:

  • Integrating safety and cyber security
  • Vulnerabilities, threats and solutions to cyber security in safety-critical systems
  • The human factors of cyber security and safety
  • Interactions between safety and cyber security systems

Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences organises the 3rd edition of the International Cross-industry Safety Conference (ICSC) together with the 6th edition of the European STAMP Workshop & Conference (ESWC), both events dedicated to practical and theoretical aspects of safety. The events will take place in Amsterdam, 31 October (workshop/tutorials) and 1-2 November (presentations and plenary discussions) and will offer professionals and researchers a platform to disseminate and share knowledge and experience about safety within and between industry and academia. At the end of this message, I describe the scope of the ICSC and ESWC briefly.

At this stage, we are looking for practitioners and researchers/academics who want to share their relevant knowledge, experience, work and research through various types of contributions (oral presentations, delivery of tutorials/workshops, posters and full papers).  Therefore, I cordially invite you to contribute to the continuity and success of these events by considering to submit a proposal and spread the word across your relevant network. We are convinced that there are much experience and knowledge that is of merit and importance to be communicated and exchanged. The respective weblinks are as follows:


For all industry sectors safety is one of the main focal points. Organizations have recognised that safety improvements contribute to the achievement of broader business goals. The ICSC is a unique opportunity to bring together the various industry sectors and academia. The event aims to function as a platform for disseminating and sharing knowledge and experience about safety and intends to grow further and become a hub for discussing current and future safety challenges and ways to deal with those.


Traditional system safety approaches are being challenged by the introduction of new technology and the increasing complexity of the systems we design, manufacture and operate. STAMP and its associated tools deal with the complexity of systems and provide systematic ways to analyse and assess existing and conceptual systems proactively or detect and illustrate deficiencies revealed through investigations. The ESWC brings together researchers and practitioners who use or want to get familiar with, STAMP that is widely used in different sectors such as space, aviation, healthcare, defence, nuclear, railways, infrastructure and automotive
