High Integrity Software: Continuing Innovation in the Face of Global Challenge
Join us at the first HIS virtual conference, taking place on Tuesday November 17th at 2pm GMT / 3pm CET / 9am EST. Register today!
The development of high integrity software-based systems is always challenging, and in current times it is an engineering discipline that has had to respond rapidly to a changing global environment. In this context, innovation has become even more essential as we respond to changes in the ways we work, changes in the tools we use on a day-to-day basis, and adapt the technologies we produce as we respond rapidly to changing market demands.
Our three speakers from globally recognised companies will present their own perspectives on these challenges – the lessons learnt and how the situation will evolve for their organisations as we move forwards. See the full webinar agenda, speaker bios and abstracts.
The HIS Organising Committee would like to thank all event supporters and sponsors for their continued support. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mission of the High Integrity Software conference is to share challenges, best practice and experience between software engineering practitioners. The conference features talks from industrial and academic specialists which disseminate experience and knowledge of important techniques and methods that are applicable across industry sectors.
We are entering an age of digital dependency, where more and more aspects of our everyday lives will rely on the correct function of software-intensive electronic systems.
These systems may be tangible, at-hand, embedded systems, but more frequently are remote and highly distributed, relying on multiple layers of communication and infrastructure for correct operation. We expect these systems to deliver ever-more complex functionality on demand, and need to be able to trust this functionality to be delivered with appropriate levels of safety and security.
The need for trustworthy software – software that does exactly what it is intended to do – is well-established in certain sectors such as defence, aerospace, and transportation, along with a mature approach to its design and assurance. But the increased use of software in more and more domains – embedded, connected, consumer and infrastructure systems – means that similar approaches are needed across a broader range of industries.
In addition there are disruptive technological influences which mean that traditional approaches to verification and assurance in the established industries will no longer remain applicable or sufficient.
The aim of the High Integrity Software conference is to share the experience and know-how that will address these challenges within our industry and help to build the foundations of a trustworthy software ecosystem for the future.
