DSN Workshop on Safer Autonomous Systems - SAS2021 - Tapei

Sunday, 20 June, 2021 - 00:00 to Monday, 21 June, 2021 - 23:30


SAS@DSN2021 will be the first dissemination event of the SAS network. This workshop aims to present and discuss ongoing research to address the safety challenges of autonomous systems. It is organized in relation with a project funded by the European Commission: the SAS (Safer Autonomous Systems) Innovative training network. It will feature invited talks by SAS members on the safety-aware design and validation of autonomous systems.

Building safety by design involves the development of powerful monitoring and adaptation mechanisms that prevent catastrophic events at runtime. Safety-aware validation calls for innovative virtual testing methods, i.e., simulation- and model-based, as physical testing in the field would be too costly, too time-consuming and possibly even too risky. The workshop will (i) present some achievements by researchers and industrial partners of the network, and (ii) promote exchanges with the audience to discuss the open safety-related issues and the novel ways to address them.
