Workshop on SecURity, REliAbiLity, test, prIvacy, Safety and Trust of Future Devices
May 27 - May 28, 2021 - Virtual Conference


Relationship between reliability/testability and security is often contradictory: reliability addresses issues related with malfunctioning of devices which might naturally happen, while security aims at defeating malicious attempts of altering the normal behavior of a device.
Besides these issues, due to advances in research directions such as IoT, Wearables, CPS, and Autonomous driving, a set of additional properties have to be guaranteed in future systems: safety, trust and privacy.
Even more than before, requirements of one property can be in significant contrast with another one.
The workshop addresses this problem by aiming at bringing together the involved communities to foster fruitful discussions and collaborations among researchers.

Call for Contributions

We are seeking the submission of short papers discussing the connection and the contradictions of the six topics addressed by the workshop (reliability, test, safety, security, trust, privacy). We accept scientific works, preliminary results, ideas that can generate new insights and that can open a discussion during the workshop.

Perspective authors are invited to submit the title and a short paper (max 2 pages) of the proposed contribution. Accepted papers will be distributed to the workshop attendees.
