ICES Newsletter - May 2015


The conference on System and Software Safety attracted over 100 participants to KTH, with excellent participation from multiple industrial domains and university disciplines. In particular, the conference keynote and the 2nd day with several workshops stimulated discussions and exchange in the spirit of ICES. The increasing interest in safety, mirrors the spread and societal impact of embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems. A follow up for 2016 in Stockholm is already under planning; the safety conference has a potential to establish itself as the Swedish industry-academia event on Systems and Software safety. The arrangement was a joint effort by ICES and Addalot. The conference dinner was arranged in Nalen in central Stockholm (see snapshot right figure).

ICES is starting up a new focus group on interoperability. Contact person is KTH researcher Frederic Loiret. The focus group is focused on interoperability across engineering tools, models, engineering disciplines and other life-cycle assets in order to increase the efficiency of software development processes for Systems Engineering. If you are believe that you can contribute please see Frederic’s contact information below. ICES has also decided to sponsor minor projects suggested by the focus groups. The application for this project funding is simplified and can be granted in short time.
