International conference on reliability, safety and security of railway systems:
modelling, analysis, verification and certification - RSSRail 2023
October 10-12, 2023, Berlin, Germany

Call for Contributions

The railway industry faces increasing pressure to improve system safety, to
decrease production costs and time to market, to reduce carbon emissions and
running costs, and to increase the capacity of the railway. 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 make the case that
development processes meet the mandated standards.

This conference will bring together researchers and developers working on railway
system reliability, security and safety to discuss how all of these requirements
can be met in an integrated way. It is also vital to ensure that 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 effective 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 to develop advanced methods and tools that
can ensure that the systems meet the requirements imposed by the regulatory
standards and help in building the supportive arguments. This will be a
working conference in which research challenges and progress will be
discussed and evaluated by both researchers and engineers, focusing on
their potential to be deployed in industrial settings.

Topics of particular interest include:
• Safety in development processes and safety management
• Combined approaches to safety and security
• System and software safety analysis
• Formal modelling and verification techniques
• System reliability
• Validation according to the standards
• Safety and security argumentation
• Fault and intrusion modelling and analysis
• Evaluation of system capacity, energy consumption, cost and their interplay
• Tool and model integration, tool chain
• Domain-specific languages and modelling frameworks
• Model reuse for reliability, safety and security
• Modelling for maintenance strategy engineering.

The conference offers different options for presenting research:
• Regular conference papers of 16 pages
• Industrial conference papers of 10 pages, providing real-life feedback
• Student conference papers of 10 pages, showcasing novel ideas and
        early research results
• Poster presentation, not to be accompanied by a full paper, however
        the abstract will be published on the website
• Tutorials to be offered in the first day (in total 4 tutorials a 90 minute in
        two parallel sessions).

The important dates:
• April 28, 2023: abstract submission for all papers; abstract submission for tutorials
• May 5, 2023: full paper submission
• June 16, 2023: Notification
• July 14, 2023 camera-ready papers submitted
