IWSSS 2022 is organized in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Electronics, Computers & Artificial Intelligence - ECAI 2022

IWSSS 2022 is the 10th edition of the International Workshop on Systems Safety & Security. This edition is an anniversary of this prestigious scientific event focused on growing importance in the global political, military and economic context. The workshop focuses on increasing the security and safety of the vital components of critical infrastructures such as energy production and distribution, water and wastewater management, defense, healthcare providers, transportation systems, and communications. The presented papers discuss advanced topics ranging from formal methods for security to applied artificial intelligence techniques for increasing cyber resilience. Special attention is given to systems safety.
The previous editions of our workshop brought together renowned professors and researchers, practitioners and implementers from industry, young scientists, and specialists from all over the world. We can easily say that IWSSS is a real bridge between academia and industry.
The quality and international visibility of the workshop are certified by the fact that the papers presented in the previous editions were published in IEEE Xplore and indexed by Clarivate Analytics Web of Science (ISI) and have an excellent citation count.
