KEYNOTE PRESENTATION - Fundamental Principles of Safety Assurance
Tim Kelly, Professor of High Integrity Systems,
Department of Computer Science, University of York
The continuous rise of software complexity with increased functionality and accessibility of software and electronic components leads to an ever-growing demand for techniques to ensure software quality, dependability and security. The risks that software systems do not meet their intended level of quality can have severe impact on vendors, customers and even - when it comes to critical systems and infrastructures - daily life. The precise understanding of risks, as well as the focused treatment of risks, has become one of the corner stones for critical decision within complex social and technical environments. Even nowadays software testing is based on risk-driven decisions. However, classical test approaches address risks rather implicitly than systematically.
|This workshop addresses systematic approaches that combine risk assessment and testing. We are interested in innovative techniques, tools and methods from industry or research, that cover systematic risk assessment, whether to obtain risk-optimized test configurations and specifications, to underpin risk analyzes by means of experimental data from test results, or to enable domain-specific solutions that address specific kinds of risk (e.g. safety risks, security risks, business risks, legal risks). |
This workshop will bring together industry and science by providing a platform for discussion, interaction and collaboration, describing challenges of system or software testing that could trigger future research activities, or comparable results of applying techniques for risk analysis or risk-based testing. This year’s edition has a special focus on system assurance, in particular methods, techniques, languages and tools for expressing systems assurance cases.
The RISK 2015 workshop will provide recent research results of and industrial experiences made in the following areas.
- Session 1: Risk Management & Assessment
- Session 2: Risk-driven development
- Session 3: Risk-driven/Risk-aware testing
Join us June 15 at the Radisson Blu in Berlin for this Full Day information session.
