There were about 240 people from 20 countries (5 continents) at the MIT workshop on STAMP last week. The largest group of attendees were from aviation although energy, automotive (the second largest group), healthcare, petrochemicals, rail, nuclear, and other industries were represented. The presentations are posted at http://psas.scripts.mit.edu/home/2014-stamp-workshop-presentations/

There was a track on security at the meeting although it was not video-taped and only one presentation is on the web on the topic. We discovered that STAMP and STPA also applies to cyber security but have not talked publicly about it until last December. My practice is not to talk about new ideas until they have been validated on real systems in an industry setting and found to work better than current tools. It now has been and does. It is in the process of being adopted by the U.S. CYBERCOM and is starting to be used on other industry projects. A disssertation will come out in August but there are a couple of preliminary papers on the STAMP website (http://psas.scripts.mit.edu/home/)

A Chinese language version of* Engineering a Safer World* published by the Beijing Defense Industry Press will be out in June. A Japanese version is in the works.

Finally, the second European STAMP/STPA workshop will be held in Germany (Univ. of Stuttgart) in September:
