all HMG-supported science in GB (that is, most of it).

However, others may think differently and may wish to publish their papers. (At €31.50 a shot for 
reprints, and university libraries like mine not subscribing, and a publisher's agreement that 
doesn't allow you to put versions on your WWW site, the word "publishing" starts to seem somewhat

Dear authors,

we are pleased to announce that the deadline for submitting papers for our special issue on the 
foundations of safety science is now extended to the end of February 2013. We would like to 
encourage authors to consider topics relevant for the call that have not been addressed so far in 
the propositions that we have received:

- The moral and ethics of safety science
- Explanation and causality in safety science
- Prediction in safety science
- Duality of subjective and objective in safety science
- Philosophical underpinnings of Resilience Engineering, Behaviour Based Safety, Safety Culture, 
High Reliability Organisations

We would also like to bring to your attention that we are planning a symposium on foundational 
issues during the SRAE 2013 conference in Trondheim, Norway, in June. We would be very pleased if 
you were to consider submitting an abstract or a paper to the event.
You find the call for abstracts and symposium here: 

do not hesitate to contact us,
best regards
the guest editors,
Teemu Reiman, Kenneth Pettersen, Jean-christophe Le Coze
