The 8th edition of the European STAMP Workshop and Conference (ESWC)
14th - 16th October 2020
WMG, University of Warwick is delighted to host the 8th edition of the European STAMP Workshop and Conferences (ESWC). The workshop will focus on the knowledge sharing regarding the attendees’ experiences of STAMP related applications.
STAMP stands for Systems-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes, it is a new accident causality model based on systems theory. It expands traditional models that focus on individual component failures or chains of directly-related failure events to include more complex processes and unsafe interactions among system components. STAMP majorly covers two methods: System Theoretic Process analysis (STPA) which focuses on hazard analysis and Causal Analysis based on STAMP (CAST) which focuses on accident analysis.
Scope of the Workshop:
With the fast introduction of new technology and increasing complexity of the systems being designed, manufactured and operated, traditional system safety approaches are being challenged due to the range of safety problems they are able to capture. In STAMP, safety is treated as a dynamic control problem rather than a ‘prevent failures’ problem, this includes traditional component failures but more considers design flaws, incomplete or inadequate requirements, dysfunctional interactions among subsystems or components (all of which may be operating exactly as specified), human interactions, and other causes of accidents and incidents.
ESWC brings together researchers and practitioners who apply, or would like to get themselves familiar with, STAMP that has been widely used in different industries including automotive, railway, maritime, space, aviation, healthcare, defence, nuclear and infrastructure.
The conference covers the following topics for presentations:
- Experiences using STPA, STPA-Sec, and CAST
- Introducing STAMP, STPA, and CAST into large organizations
- Safety-guided and Security-guided design using STPA and STPA-Sec
- Using STPA to make decisions
- Accident/Loss analysis
- Certification and regulatory issues
- Evaluations and comparisons with traditional techniques
- Risk management and identifying leading indicators
- Applications to security and other areas such as workplace safety
- Safety Management System development and evaluation
- Tools, processes, and other support for analysis and design using STPA and CAST
- Management and adoption experiences or challenges
- Applications to other emergent properties (beyond safety and security)
To be confirmed shortly
Please be aware the deadline for submiting abstracts is 9:00am UK time 30th July 2020.
