This year we celebrate the 33rd edition of SAFECOMP, a major forum to provide ample opportunity for academic and industrial researchers to exchange insights and experience on emerging methods, approaches and practical solutions in the areas of safety, security and reliability of critical computer applications. Since it was established in 1979 by the European Workshop on Industrial Computer Systems, Technical Committee 7 on Reliability, Safety and Security (EWICS TC7), SAFECOMP has contributed to the progress of the state-of-the-art in dependable application of computers in safety-related and safety-critical systems. This year SAFECOMP is organized within FLORENCE 2014 a one-week scientific event on the development of safe, secure, dependable and performing systems covering design and assessment both from a quantitative and a formal perspective. Together with SAFECOMP 2014 the other major event is Quantita- tive Evaluation of SysTems - QEST 2014. Many other satellite events, in addition to the six SAFECOMP workshops, are taking place, such as FORMATS (the International Conference on Formal Modeling and Analysis of Timed Systems), EPEW (the European Workshop on Performance Engineering) and FMICS (the International Workshop on Formal Met hods for Industrial Critical Systems). We are very proud to present this year's SAFECOMP program, which in- cludes 20 research papers and 3 reports on practical experience and tools, out of 85 submissions from 22 countries. Four keynotes given by outstanding repre- sentatives from academia (Prof. Henrique Madeira and Prof. Philip Koopman), industry (Mr. Philippe Quere) and EU Research Programs (Mr. Werner Stein- hoegl) enrich the program. We are grateful to them for their invaluable con- tribution in providing additional fuel for fruitful discussion and inspiration for research. Following the tradition of thoroughness of this conference, all the manuscripts went through a rigorous review process by the 48 members of the Program Committee and a number of external reviewers. Then, final discussion was held at the plenary meeting on May 7th in Pisa, attended by 24 PC members, where the papers appearing in th e program were selected. We would like to express our deep gratitude to the PC members, who con- tributed their expertise and time from their busy schedules before, during, and after the PC meeting to ensure the quality of the reviewing and shepherding processes. We also greatly appreciate the efforts and expertise of the external reviewers. Of course, we would like to gratefully acknowledge and thank all the authors for their effort in submitting papers! Several other individuals deserve our gratitude for their help, guidance, visible and invisible work in preparing the conference, among them the EWICS TC7 Chair Francesca Saglietti, the Worskhop Chair Frank Ortmeier, the Industry- Liaison Chair Michael Paulitsch, the Publicity Chair Francesco Flammini, the Publication Chair Andrea Ceccarelli, the Local Organizing Chair Paolo Lollini and his team (Nicola Nostro, Leonardo Montecchi, Andreia Rossi, Marco Mori, Valentina Bonfiglio) and our Finance Chair Ettore Ricciardi. Finally, we warmly welcome all the a ttendees in Florence and wish a very interesting, fruitful, and enjoyable conference!
