2nd International Workshop on the
Certification of Safety-Critical Software Controlled Systems
29 March 2009, York, United Kingdom
A satellite event to ETAPS 2009
In many domains like transportation, power generation, medical technology, manufacturing and space exploration, statutory obligations traditionally require a formalized certification for the development of high assurance products. Formal methods are part of the standard recommendations, in particular for the higher safety integrity levels. However, experience shows that certifiable development of high-assurance software needs a lot more than pure application of formal techniques and tools that are founded on a formal semantics and support in parts automated code generation, formal analysis, verification or error detection. The major question to be addressed in the workshop is how to embed formal methods and tools in a seamless design process which covers several development phases and which includes an efficient construction of a safety case for the product.
