Call for Papers

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

ESRA website:

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.


Authors are invited to submit one page abstracts using the predefined abstract template file. Technical program committee will review the abstracts and inform the authors about the acceptance. The full length papers have to be submitted using the paper template file. A peer review of the papers will be performed and accepted papers will be published in indexed Proceedings of ESREL2017, published by Taylor and Francis. Extended versions of selected papers will be submitted to a special issue of scientific journal.
