CARS 2019

5th International Workshop on Critical Automotive Applications: Robustness & Safety

September 17, 2019. Napoli, Italy.

The CARS workshop is a forum focusing on architecture, methods and development techniques for safety-related automotive embedded systems and applications. The 5th edition of CARS is collocated with EDCC 2019, Naples, Italy.

Workshop:
Sept 17, 2019
To contribute to the workshop, authors are invited to submit a position paper of up to 4 pages (IEEE format). The final version of accepted papers will be published on-line.



Workshop topics and goals:

The increasing complexity of automotive applications, the challenges posed by autonomous vehicles, the need to master production costs using off-the-shelf components, the coexistence of critical and non-critical applications, and the emergence of new architectural paradigms may have a strong effect on dependability of automotive embedded systems. This situation requires design and validation methods, but also tools to improve automotive systems robustness and their safety and security properties.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the construction of critical automotive applications and systems. It will place emphasis on:


CARS is a forum for on-going work exchange.

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.

Topics of interest for the workshop are large and include:


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.
