About the Conference

Welcome to the 11th European STAMP Workshop and Conference!!

An immersive experience dedicated to fostering innovation and knowledge exchange in the field of Systems Theoretic Accident Model and Processes (STAMP) model and tools.

Alexandroupolis Greece

Join us in Alexandroupolis, Greece , for a series of engaging workshops, keynote speeches, and networking opportunities designed to advance the practice and application of systems thinking in safety and beyond.

Alexandroupolis Greece

This year, our theme 'Advancing Safety in a Complex World' highlights the increasingly intricate systems we navigate and the innovative approaches required to manage risk and ensure resilience. Whether you're an industry veteran, a budding researcher, or a passionate safety professional, our conference is the perfect platform to propel your understanding and contribute to shaping the future of systems safety.

In an era where traditional system safety approaches are increasingly under scrutiny, the 11th European STAMP Workshop and Conference (ESWC) emerges as a great oportunity of comunicating new ideas and innovations.

We delve into the intricacies of modern systems, which are transformed by cutting-edge technology and escalating complexity in design, manufacture, and operation.

STAMP—Systems-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes—and its suite of tools stand at the forefront, offering systematic methodologies to proactively analyze and assess both existing and conceptual systems.

ESWC is the crucible where researchers and practitioners converge to share insights, apply, or acquaint themselves with STAMP's versatile applications across diverse sectors including aerospace, healthcare, defense, nuclear energy, railways, public infrastructure, and the automotive industry.


This year's conference is an exposition of practical experiences and theoretical advancements, covering an extensive range of topics:

  • Practical applications and experiences with STPA, STPA-Sec, and CAST.
  • Strategies for introducing STAMP, STPA, and CAST within large-scale organizations.
  • Innovative design paradigms guided by safety and security considerations using STPA and STPA-Sec.
  • Decision-making frameworks informed by STPA analyses.
  • In-depth accident and loss analysis and learnings.
  • Discussion on certification and the impact of regulatory frameworks.
  • Insightful evaluations and juxtapositions with traditional safety techniques.
  • Advanced risk management approaches and the identification of leading indicators for system safety.
  • Security applications and extensions into areas like workplace safety and beyond.
  • Development and critical assessment of Safety Management Systems.
  • Emerging tools, processes, and support mechanisms for STPA and CAST application in analysis and design.
  • Management insights, adoption experiences, and the challenges faced therein.
  • Explorations into emergent properties of systems beyond safety and security.

We invite you to join this collective endeavor to reshape the landscape of system safety and to push the boundaries of what is possible in protecting the integrity of complex systems worldwide.
