Hello everybody,

Please see below email from Professor Leveson.

Hope to see you at MIT in March!

All the best,
Simon Whiteley

p.s have you seen the recent Tesla Autopilot news?! #BetaTesting with #unqualified #FirstAdopters on #PublicRoads? http://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/613653/Tesla-Model-S-Autopilot-Fail-Swerve-Video

> STAMP is a new accident causality model based on systems theory and systems thinking described in Nancy Leveson’s book “Engineering a Safer World.” STAMP integrates into engineering analysis the causal factors in our increasingly complex systems such as software, human-decision making and human factors, new technology, social and organizational design, and safety culture.
>
> STPA is a powerful new hazard analysis technique based on STAMP while CAST is the equivalent for accident/incident analysis. These tools are now used globally in almost every industry. Newer tools, such of those for doing early concept analysis (STECA) security analysis (STPA-Sec) and leading indicators have been developed. This free workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how to use these new tools, to meet with users and to hear about applications, evaluations, and the latest developments in this powerful new approach to system safety engineering and to cyber security. A full day of free tutorials will be held on March 21. In the past, presenters have come from industry, government, and academia. Application areas have included aviation, air traffic control, medical devices, oil and gas, automotive, railways, chemicals, space, human factors, domestic robots, security, defense, workplace safety, etc.
