DAY 2 - Tuesday May 22, 2018
08:00 - 08:30 Registration and Coffee
08:30 - 12:00 Morning Workshops

Workshop 1:  Frontiers in Safety
Towards increased efficiency and confidence in process compliance, Julieth Patricia Castellanos Ardila, Mälardalens Högskola
A tool for analyzing safety and security of Java programs, Narges Khakpour, Linnaeus University
Towards generating ECSS-compliant fault tree analysis results via ConcertoFLA, Zulqarnain Haider, MälardalensHögskola
Open Source in Functional Safety products, Nicolas Martin-Vivaldi, Addalot

Workshop 2: Security and Safety
John McDermidand Johanthan Roberts 
1. Motivation for having a link between safety and security during the design of cyber safety critical systems.
2. The Cyber-Risk Assessment Framework (CRAF) for designing for safety and security.
3. The details of the CRAF.
4. Practitioners’ perspectives of using and future work for the CRAF.
The workshop will be a mix of presentations and discussions.

Full day training: 
System Safety: Why-Because Analysis, Ontological Hazard Analysis, and Risk Analysis
Prof. Dr. Peter Bernard Ladkin
The course is divided into three modules: 
1. The Counterfactual Test (CT) and Why-Because Analysis (WBA).Introducing the CT and its use in causal analysis of incidents with WBA. An incident description will be provided, from which participants will construct a Why-Because Graph.

12:00 - 13:00 Lunch
13:00 - 17:00 Afternoon Workshops

Workshop 3: Users, HMI and Safety, 
Christin Lindholm, LTH Patrik Moberg, Siemens Digital Factory Division
Medical devices and other industrial system are becoming more sophisticated, contain more software and are used by new and different user groups –often with limited training or infrequent users.  A major challenge is to assure safety and prevent harm, and by involving users in the risk management process, we can lower the risk of errors. In this workshop we will discuss challenges and experiences from safety work in this kind of systems.

Workshop 4: Safety engineering for highly automated vehicles, Martin Törngren and Sofia Cassel, ARCHER FFI project,
Automated driving for higher levels of automation represents a drastic departure from current vehicle design by introducing unprecedented complexity as part of safety critical systems. The workshop focuses on presenting issues and results concerning methods and techniques for
•dealing with risk,
•verification and validation,
•architectural design 
Full day training:
(Continued)  ?
2. Ontological Hazard Analysis (OHA). Applying OHA using OPRA, followed by a system description provided for participants to apply OHA.
3. Risk Analysis. Use of event trees to delineate possible outcomes of hazards; evaluate of likelihood and severity and their combination.
Written course materials will be provided. 
The training is based partly on examples in the draft book, Digital System Safety.
Causalis Ingenieurgesellschaft will issue a certificate of successful completion for participant.
