                     SafeCert 2008
             International Workshop on the
           Certification of Safety-Critical
             Software Controlled Systems
           29 March 2008, Budapest, Hungary
            A satellite event to ETAPS 2008

           ================================

Scope
-----
In many domains like transportation, power generation, medical
technology, manufacturing and space exploration, statutory
obligations traditionally require a formalized certification for the
development of high assurance products. Formal methods are part of
the standard recommendations, in particular for the higher safety
integrity levels. However, experience shows that certifiable
development of high-assurance software needs a lot more than pure
application of formal techniques and tools that are founded on a
formal semantics and support in parts automated code generation,
formal analysis, verification or error detection. The major question
to be addressed in the workshop is how to embed formal methods and
tools in a seamless design process which covers several development
phases and which includes an efficient construction of a safety case
for the product.

Contributions
-------------
