CARS 2016: 4th International Workshop on Critical Automotive Applications: Robustness & Safety

Versión para impresiónEnviar a un amigo
The CARS workshop is focussing on architecture, methods and development techniques for safety-related automotive embedded systems and applications. In particular, CARS aims at promoting and fostering discussion on novel ideas and techniques, possibly controversial approaches, a place where researchers and developers can share both real problems and innovative solutions. The 4th edition of CARS is collocated with EDCC 2016, Gothenburg, Sweden.
Topics of interest for the workshop include (but are not limited to):
  • Safety in the development processes and safety management.
  • Combined approaches for safety and security
  • Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF)
  • Autonomous systems, Car-to-X, ADAS and safety
  • Hardware and software support for dependable automotive systems.
  • Middleware and tool support for dependable embedded automotive systems.
  • Open source approaches and integration of SEooC (Safety Elements out of Context).
  • Real-time operating systems, WCET estimation, schedulability analysis.
  • Modeling and code generation techniques.
  • Software safety analysis and formal verification techniques for automotive systems.
  • Coordination, communication, networking and distributed control architectures.
  • Diagnosis approaches, failure data, practical experience reports of critical applications.
  • Validation according to ISO 26262.
Application areas of interest to the workshop focus on the automotive domain but methods and techniques in other transport domains (e.g. aerospace, railways) are also welcome.
Contributions to the workshop and publication | To contribute to the workshop, authors are invited to submit a position paper of up to 4 pages (IEEE format) before the submission deadline. 
The program committee will carefully review each position paper. The review will focus not only on the paper's quality but also on its novelty and ability to engender fruitful discussions. 
All authors of accepted papers are invited to attend the workshop. 
Accepted papers will be published on the open-access eternal publication archive HAL.
Submission deadline | May 30, 2016  (up to 4 IEEE pages)
