European STAMP Workshop and Conference (ESWC)

European STAMP Workshop and Conference (ESWC) 2021:


WMG, University of Warwick is delighted to host the European STAMP Workshop and Conference (ESWC) 2021. The workshop will be delivered in hybrid format and focus on knowledge sharing regarding 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 primarily 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.
