Event Details

Seminar on software reliability, September 25th


Motto: "Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future" (Niels Bohr)


About the workshop: Software reliability is defined as "the probability of failure-free software operation for a specified period of time in a specified environment". Because it's almost impossible to ensure that software contains no faults, safety standards assume that software always fails. However, this does not mean that there shouldn't be more effort in measuring and improving the software reliability.  

This seminar presents an overview of the state-of-the-art in software reliability, focusing on practical opportunities in the field of estimation and prediction of software reliability, including methods, tools and techniques to characterize the accuracy of the  forecasts, based on collected data. See the program for more details.

About the interest group: Embedded systems are increasingly used in safety-critical application areas, such as medical, railway, military, aerospace and factory systems, where a failure can endanger human life or the environment. Safety-critical embedded systems are becoming more complex, and they use software and hardware to implement part of their functions. 

This is the reason why the national innovation network InfinIT is creating an interest group on safety-critical systems. Participation in the Safety-Critical Systems Interest Group (SCSIG) is free of charge and is open to all the interested parties. The meeting is co-organized with IEEE Denmark Section, Chapter CO16--Embedded Systems.

Time: Tuesday, September 25th, 9:00 to 12:30

Place: DTU Meeting Center, Building 101A, Meeting room 1 (Mødelokale 1)

Technical University of Denmark , Anker Engelunds Vej 1, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby
