SEPTEMBER 13 – 14, 2016, BERLIN
Call for Papers:
Sensor Systems for Safety and Security
In most industrialized countries a high level of both safety and security has been reached. However, it becomes increasingly challenging to maintain or to increase this standard, given the great challenges and current threats we are facing. Upholding and restoring the necessary level of safety and security we are accustomed to requires the development and implementation of innovative technical solutions such as intelligent sensing systems and sensor networks. These hold the promise that hazards and threats can be detected early enough to avoid severe adverse impact, while still allowing people to travel and move freely as well as maintaining free trade and free circulation of goods. At the same time, smart factories and intelligent logistics, also referred
to as Industry 4.0, pose new challenges with respect to operational safety. Advanced sensors and sensor networks are required e.g. for the safe operation of autonomous mobile systems. To provide valid solutions to all these challenges, cross-disciplinary collaboration is required. To foster the communication and interaction among these different communities on this very topic, the conference series provides an interdisciplinary exchange platform for scientists, experts and actors from research, industry, public bodies and authorities. The conference provides direct insight into current security research activities and hot topics in this field.
Papers should be dedicated to one or more of the following topics:
The conference language is German, the written papers language remains English.
Landesvertretung Nordrhein-Westfalen (Representation of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia) Hiroshimastraße 12 – 16 10785 Berlin
Authors are invited to submit English papers. First as an abstract of up to 3000 characters (including blanks, excluding the title).
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is March 21, 2016.
You can choose between submission for an oral presentation or for a poster presentation.
Notification of acceptance: Second week of May 2016. After your abstract has been accepted, you will be asked to submit a full paper (as PDF) of 4 – 8 pages for oral presentation or 2 – 4 pages for posters to be published in the conference proceedings.
The deadline for the submission of full papers is June 06, 2016. All submissions should present novel perspectives within the scope of the conference. All submissions will be subjected to a scientific review process.

Conference Proceedings and publication:
The conference proceedings will be published by Fraunhofer Verlag and by Fraunhofer e-prints via Open Access.
Additionally, selected conference papers will be asked to be expanded to journal papers to be proposed for a special issue on security and safety research of the Reliability Engineering and System Safety Journal (RESS), published by Elsevier. These selected papers will be subjected to a second peer review process.
