WPI’s State-of-the-Art  Seminar in Systems Engineering:

Development of Trustworthy and Secure Systems

Wednesday, October 17
8:00 am to 5:00 pm
WPI Campus, Gateway I

Space is limited. Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. 

A trustworthy system is one for which there is assurance that it will perform as expected by the users, given attributes of interest such as dependability, security, reliability, availability, safety, security, resilience, and integrity. The speakers in this seminar have been invited to speak on the development of such systems, with a focus on the use of assurance cases as a means of increasing the confidence that the system will behave as intended.
