  SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE

SSIRI 2008 will focus on integrating tools and approaches for developing reliable, secure, and trustworthy systems. All papers reporting innovative approaches, concepts and experiences throughout the entire product development cycle in software, hardware, and systems are encouraged. The conference will bridge theory, applications, experience reports, as well as best-of-breed practices. It enhances our situational awareness of developing trustworthy products in today's challenging and changing environment. Four state of the art, all day or half-day, tutorials will run concurrent to the conference and focus on new developments in: mechanical systems reliability and assurance, Six Sigma contributions to reliability, dependable and trustworthy systems, and electrically programmed fuse element: design, characterization, integration, reliability and applications.
