Update: The workshop program is now available here. A pdf version of the program is also available for download.

This workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers and engineers in academia and industry to foster an exchange of research results, experiences, and products in the area of reliable, dependable and secure computing for critical systems protection from both a theoretical and practical perspective. Its ultimate goal is to envision new trends and ideas about as- pects of designing, implementing, and evaluating reliable and secure solutions for the next generation critical infrastructures. Critical Infrastructures present several challenges in the fields of distributed systems, dependability and security methods and approaches crucial for improving trustworthiness on ICT facilities. The workshop aims at presenting the advancement on the state of art in these fields and spreading their adoption in several scenarios involving main infrastructures for modern society.

Topics of interest are (but not limited to):

  • Model-based and experimental assessment of safety, reliability and security – Security & Privacy
  • Quantitative analysis of dependability and security metrics
  • Risk Assessment and Management
  • Fault tolerant and Dependable Distributed Algorithm – Threat Analysis
  • Monitoring systems
  • Adaptive solutions for secure and safe systems
  • Self-* solutions

Domains of application are (but not limited to):

  • Critical infrastructure, Smart Grid, and SCADA systems – Medical device and healthcare
  • Telecommunication and networks
  • Railways, automotive, aerospace, and avionics
  • Defence, cyber intelligence


Submitted papers must be written in English and each papers must contain results that have not previously appeared and have not been concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. In all cases, any partial overlap with any published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated. Submissions are limited to 10 pages in the LNCS format. Additional details maybe included in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the PC. Papers must be submitted electronically using the EasyChair server. The link is https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=resa4ci.


The selection of contributions to be presented at the conference and published in the proceedings will be based on peer-review by the Programme Committee. Accepted paper will be published in the Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series jointly with the SAFECOMP 2014 proceedings. It is required that each accepted paper be presented at the workshop by one of its authors. Authors of accepted papers are required to submit the final, camera-ready versions of their papers (in LNCS format), including an electronic version as specified in the authors’ instructions.
