The annual European Safety and Reliability Conference ESREL is an international conference under the auspices of the European Safety and Reliability Association (ESRA), new webpage ESRA.

The 27th edition of the international conference, ESREL 2017, will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of scientific works covering theories and methods in the field of risk, safety and reliability, and their application to a wide range of industrial, civil and social sectors and problem areas. ESREL 2017 will also be an opportunity for researchers and practitioners, academics and engineers to meet, exchange ideas and gain insights from each other.

Our ambition for ESREL 2017 is to advance in the understanding, modeling, and managing of the complexity of the risk, safety and reliability fields characterizing our world, now and in the future. We aim at setting up a multidisciplinary platform to address the technological, societal, financial aspects of these fields. With the support of the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, we engage in broadening the scope of risk, safety and reliability from the technical to natural, financial and social aspects, focusing on inter-dependencies of functions and cascade of failures in complex systems.

Papers presented at ESREL 2017 will be published in the conference proceedings issued by Taylor and Francs, CRC Press: Safety and Reliability – Theory and Application: ESREL 2017 (one page extended abstracts in paperback and attached electronic media – USB with full papers). 

Extended versions of selected papers will be submitted to a special issue of scientific journal.


ESREL 2017 will take place in, Portoroz, Grand Hotel Bernardin.
