The Scandinavian Conference on Systems and Software Safety
The 11th edition of the Scandinavian Conference on Systems and Software Safety will take place in Stockholm November 21-22 and you are invited to join the discussion and learn from others!
System and software safety in electronic systems is becoming increasingly important in many industries and in critical societal infrastructure. The systems become ever more complex, connected and autonomous and the software continues to grow. This poses many challenges even for mature organizations, requiring approaches that go beyond established best practices. Many organizations face the same kind of challenges and thus sharing of experiences becomes essential.
The Scandinavian conference on safety and software safety has become a central meeting place for Scandinavian safety experts from industry, public and academic organizations. The conference is an opportunity to share experiences and make new contacts. There will be a plenary overview day, and a second day with parallel sessions. The parallel sessions will be in depth workshops and tutorials about different challenges, techniques, standards and methods. As for the previous years, we anticipate a healthy mixture of participants with presentations from different industries and academia. The conference is co-hosted by KTH, SAFER and Addalot.
This year’s keynotes are Nancy Leveson, MIT, Ibrahim Habli, University of York and Lena Kecklund, MTO Säkerhet AB.

10:55-16:30 Tutorial: An Introduction to STPA and CAST, Nancy Leveson, MIT
CAST is a new accident analysis method that helps to better understand why an accident occurred and how to prevent future accidents related to the same systemic factors. In contrast, STPA is a proactive tool that identifies scenarios leading to accidents before they occur. Information obtained to assist in preventing or mitigating losses. While there is not enough time to teach how to perform STPA and CAST in this tutorial, I will provide an introduction to them and enough information that you should be able to get started in applying these new safety engineering tools.
