In association with IFIP WG13.5, Call for Papers, Workshop on:

Human Factors in the Safety and Security of Critical Systems

18 and 19 March, 2013, School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow,

Over the last thirty years, there has been a mass of research into the
central role that human factors play in determining the safety of complex
systems.  Studies have identified the interactions between stress, fatigue,
workload and a host of performance shaping factors that influence the
perception, cognition and physiology of operators, of maintenance staff and
of management.  

At the same time, there has been a growing recognition that security is a
key factor in the dependability of critical systems.  However, much
attention has focused on the technical infrastructures, the software and
hardware that mitigate potential threats.  Only in the last 5-10 years has
there been a significant focus on human aspects of cyber security.  The
existing work on this area has not always been informed by the mass of
previous work in the human factors of safety critical systems.  However
terms such as ‘situation awareness’ that were originally considered in
safety-related systems are increasingly being used in the context of cyber

This workshop will provide a common forum for researchers working on the
human factors of safety and security critical systems.  The following list
identifies some, but not all, of the potential topics:

·         Usability studies of security or safety critical systems;

·         Application of human factors studies from safety-critical to
secure systems (and vice versa);

·         Interactions between safety, security, dependability and the
usability of complex systems;

·         Common organisational issues in safety and security critical

·         Studies of resilience across both safety and security critical

·         Tools and techniques for the co-design of safety and security
critical interfaces.


Submission instructions: please send abstracts to the conference chairs by
7th December 2012.  Full papers are due by 30th January 2013.  Selected
submissions will be included after further review for a special edition of
Elsevier’s Reliability Engineering and System Safety journal.

Co-chairs:           Chris Johnson,                  Univ. of Glasgow.
