REC2012 is focusing on providing solutions for Practical Applications and dealing with Practical Challenges in incorporating Reliable Computing in engineering practice. While there is an underlying theoretical framework for Reliable Computing, translation from theory to practice in engineering is still needed. Industry and academia are invited to contribute and to join in the discussions on developments and needs in the field.

This conference is unique in combining computer science, mathematics, and engineering analysis and design to discuss the reliability of engineering computations, providing a common forum by which to continue cross-disciplinary advisements in the field.

Participants are expected to submit papers that will be published in the conference proceedings and also will be available on-line from the conference web site. After the conference, selected papers will be published in a special issue(s) of a selected journal. The papers will go through the normal refereeing process.

Topics include but are not limited to:
- management and processing of uncertainties
- risk analysis, hazard analysis, risk and hazard mitigation
- robust design, reliability-based design, performance-based design

Herein, practical applications and practical challenges may concern, e.g.:
- structures
- systems
- processes
- algorithms

Methods and theories may include, e.g.:
- traditional statistics and probability theory
- Bayesian theory
- imprecise probabilities
- evidence theory
- p-box approach
- fuzzy probability theory
- interval analysis
- fuzzy set theory
- convex modeling
- information gap theory

Contributions are invited with emphasis on both theory and applications.

All papers must be written in English. Use of the templates is a condition for acceptance.

Instructions for paper submission:
Please submit both the original LaTeX / Word file AND the associated PDF via email to with the subject line “REC2012 paper submission”. Papers are limited strictly to 20 pages.
