Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom /
------------- Call For Participation ------------- & ------------- Programme -------------
Since it was established in 1979, by The European Workshop on Industrial Computer Systems, TC 7 on Reliability, Safety and Security, EWICS TC7, SAFECOMP has contributed to the progress of the state-of-the-art in dependable applications of computer systems. SAFECOMP is an annual event covering the state-of-the-art, experience and new trends in the areas of computer safety, reliability and security regarding dependable applications of computer systems. SAFECOMP provides ample opportunity to exchange insights and experience on emerging methods and practical applications across the borders of different disciplines.
SAFECOMP focuses on safety-critical computer applications and is a platform for knowledge and technology transfer between academia, industry and research institutions.
The cross-fertilisation between different scientific communities and industry supports the achievement of long-term results contributing to the integration of multidisciplinary experiences in order to improve the design and deployment of dependable computer-based systems. Over the years the industry participation in SAFECOMP has grown steadily. This emphasises the importance of technology transfer between academia and industry. SAFECOMP 2003 further sustains the healthy interchange of research results and practical experiences.
The SAFECOMP 2003 programme consists of 30 papers selected from 96 submissions from all over the world. SAFECOMP 2003 acknowledges the invited Keynote Talks enhancing the technical and scientific merit of the conference. We would like to thank the International Programme Committee, the External Reviewers, the Keynote Speakers and the Authors for their work in support of SAFECOMP 2003. We would also like to thank the Conference Staff at the National e-Science Centre for their valuable collaboration in organising and hosting SAFECOMP 2003.

National e-Science Centre: /
One of the greenest and most beautiful cities in Europe, Edinburgh annually attracts over 2 million visitors, not just for its architecture, but as a city rich in social, cultural, learning and sporting facilities. Each year it hosts internationally-renowned events such as the Edinburgh International Arts, Fringe, Film, TV and Science festivals. Yet it is more than just a tourist attraction. Edinburgh is a thriving commercial and financial centre, the site of the new Scottish Parliament and a gateway to the coastline, hills and open country of the Scottish Highlands. Edinburgh is a beautiful, dynamic, prosperous European city that benefits from a unique architectural heritage and a magnificent natural setting.
Edinburgh is also home to a thriving software industry supporting the major financial institutions in the city and creating new products. Over the past years Edinburgh has seen a huge increase in start-ups in the software area. Close to Edinburgh, the Silicon Glen houses major microelectronics, communications and software design companies. Scottish Enterprise, the development agency for Scotland, places a strong emphasis on developing industries providing key infrastructure for the knowledge economy. This is based on the firm foundation of a strong supply of appropriately-qualified graduates from the ten universities in central Scotland.
