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.
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:
software engineering for robustness,
security and safety issues,
real-time embedded systems technologies,
architectural software and hardware solutions,
development processes for dependable automotive embedded systems.
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:
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),
