6th International Workshop on Critical Automotive Applications: Robustness & Safety
September 13, 2021. Munich, Germany.
The CARS workshop is a forum focusing on architecture, methods and development techniques for safety-related automotive embedded systems and applications. The 6th edition of CARS is collocated with EDCC 2021, Munich, Germany.
The former editions were very successful events:
· CARS@EDCC2010, Valencia, Spain
· CARS@SAFECOMP2013, Toulouse, France
· CARS@EDCC2015, Paris, France
· CARS@EDCC2016, Gothenburg, Sweden
CARS@EDCC2019, Napoli, Italy
· Paper Submission: June 5, 2021
· Author notification: June 29, 2021
· WS Camera-Ready Papers: July 5, 2021
To contribute to the workshop, authors are invited to submit a position paper of up to 4 pages (IEEE format). The final version of accepted papers will be published on-line.

In particular, CARS aims at promoting and fostering discussion on novel ideas and techniques, possibly controversial approaches, a place where researchers and developers can share both real problems and innovative solutions.
· Safety in the development processes and safety management,
· Combined approaches for safety and security,
· Autonomous systems, Car-to-X, ADAS and safety
· Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF),
· Hardware and software support for dependable automotive systems.
· Middleware and tool support for dependable embedded automotive systems,
· Open source approaches
· Hierarchy of SEooC (Safety Elements out of Context) for very complex systems as e.g. ADS
· Real-time operating systems, WCET estimation, schedulability analysis,
· Modeling and code generation techniques,
· Software safety analysis and formal verification techniques for automotive systems,
· Coordination, communication, networking and distributed control architectures,
· Diagnosis approaches, failure data, practical experience reports of critical applications,
· Validation and verification techniques,
