5th International Workshop on Next Generation of System Assurance Approaches for Safety-Critical Systems

Trondheim, Norway, September 20th, 2016

In conjunction with the International Conference on Computer Safety, Reliability and Security, SAFECOMP



Safety-critical systems engineering requires the execution of laborious and expensive assurance and certification activities so that the systems are allowed to operate. The characteristics of these systems regularly evolve, which also results in a growth of their complexity and size. Safety-critical systems are currently moving towards e.g. systems of systems and cyber-physical systems, and the use of technologies related to software, networking, standard architectures, and mixed-criticality is increasing. In addition, the regulatory needs are changing, including modifications to the applicable standards. There is a growing interest in the use of goal-based standards and assurance cases for system certification, and in jointly addressing safety and security aspects. All the above characteristics require that system assurance practices also evolve, take further quality concerns into account (e.g., security and privacy), and analyse the relationships between the concerns. Practitioners need new approaches that allow them to address present and future system assurance needs and contribute to system assurance cost-effectiveness, including compliance assessment, product reuse, incremental and compositional certification, and evidence management.

The SASSUR workshop is intended to explore new ideas to improve system assurance and certification of safety-critical systems. In particular, SASSUR will provide a forum for thematic presentations and in-depth discussions about the alignment of standards and system characteristics, specification of assurance cases, safety evidence management, and reuse of assurance information, in a way that makes assurance and certification more cost-effective, precise, and scalable.
