NGSA 2013 - International Workshop on Next Generation of System Assurance Approaches for Safety-Critical Systems



VenueToulouse, France France



Topics/Call fo Papers

Safety assurance and certification are amongst the most expensive and time-consuming tasks in the development of safety-critical systems. The increasing complexity and size of these systems combined with their growing market demand requires the industry to implement a coherent reuse strategy. A key difficulty appears when trying to reuse products from one application domain in another, because different domains are subject to different safety regulations. Subsequently, for a reused product, the full safety assurance and certification process has to be applied, just as for a new product. This reduces the return on investment of such reuse. Further, market trends strongly suggest that many future safety-critical systems will be comprised of heterogeneous, dynamic coalitions of systems of systems.
For this type of systems, it is crucial to develop sound strategies that would allow safety assurance and certification to be done compositionally.
The SASSUR workshop is intended to explore new ideas on compositional and evolutionary safety assurance and certification. In particular, SASSUR will provide a forum for thematic presentations and in-depth discussions about reuse and composition of safety arguments, safety evidence, and contextual information about system components, in a way that makes assurance and certification more cost-effective, precise, and scalable.
SASSUR aims at bringing together experts, researchers, and practitioners, from diverse communities, such as safety and security engineering, certification processes, model-based technologies, software and hardware design, safety-critical systems, and applications communities (railway, aerospace, automotive, health, industrial manufacturing, etc.).
Contributions are sought in (but are not limited to) the following topics:
• Industrial challenges for cost-effective safety assurance and certification
• Cross-domain product certification
• Integration of process-centric and product-centric assurance
• Compliance management of standards and regulations
• Evidence traceability
• Transparency of the safety assurance and certification processes: metrics and business cases
• Evolutionary approaches for safety and security assurance and certification
• Case-based assurance approaches
• Tools for supporting of safety assurance
• Seamless development tool chain for safety critical
• Evolution of standards and trends on transport regulation
• The next challenges of safety critical development in industry
• Human factors in safety assurance and certification
• COTS or external sourcing management of evidence in safety critical system
• Mixed criticality
