Welcome to ASSC'2012 / ISSRC'2012
The Australian System Safety Conference is a joint conference between the Australian Safety Critical Systems Association (aSCSa) and the International Systems Safety Society (ISSS) Australian Chapter. This year the conference incorporates the 2012 International System Safety Regional Conference.
The conference aims to share research, government and industry knowledge and practice in the field of systems and software safety. The theme of this conference focuses on value adding and improving efficiency in system safety.
System safety... what's the value-add? System Safety programs are always challenged by: availability of qualified resources; program budget; integration with and influence over the engineering development and planning. Yet liability protections, and regulation, require formal safety assessment of all complex systems with major hazard potential. Add-on safety programs are universally experienced to be least efficient and least effective. So -
The conference is intended to bring together domains of Defence, aviation, rail, automotive, utilities, mining and resources, medical engineering, telecommunications, and information technology. It provides a rare opportunity to learn from and exchange information across application areas and disciplines outside your own, with representatives from defence, mining, aviation, medical and process industries just to name a few.
If you work or have an interest in system safety, functional safety, safety engineering, safety management, or if you are a student wanting to learn from expert from around the globe, then this conference is for you. We invite you to submit a paper and register your attendance.
