The annual European Safety and Reliability Conference (ESREL) is an international conference under the auspices of the European Safety and Reliability Association (ESRA) .
The 29th edition of the conference will be held on 22 – 26 September 2019 at the iconic Welfenschloss, the heart of the Leibniz Universität Hannover.
The objective of ESREL 2019 is to provide an all-round inspiring environment and a multi-disciplinary forum for the exchange of knowledge and expertise on theories and methods in the field of risk, safety and reliability, and on their application to a wide range of industrial, civil and social sectors and problem areas.
The interplay among technological, societal and financial aspects is attentively considered in addressing the demands and challenges that evolve from today’s rapidly changing world and its digitalization. While the occurring changes enable innovative developments, such as smart cities and systems or autonomous transportation, they also introduce newly arising, yet potentially unknown, hazards and risks, e.g. related to and challenging cybersecurity, data security, big data, complexity and interdependencies of systems, cascading failures across systems and sectors, resilience of infrastructures, and more. Clearly, there is a strong need for evolution and advancement of the field of reliability, risk and safety to cope with these challenges for arriving at taking the right decisions in the design and operation of technological and industrial systems.
We, the organizers, are very much looking forward to a vivid exchange of ideas and visions in this context, with a broad thematic coverage.
Papers presented at ESREL 2019 will be published in open access conference proceedings by Research Publishing Services, Singapore, and be indexed.
