New Venue Augments High Integrity Software (HISC) Conference

This year, the  High Integrity Software Conference (HISC) will move to a new, larger venue, the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Wales.

The mission of HISC is to share challenges, best practices, and experience between software engineering practitioners. The conference features talks from industrial and academic specialists who disseminate their experience and knowledge of essential techniques and methods applicable across industry sectors.

The need for trustworthy software – software that does exactly what it is intended to do – is well-established in specific sectors such as defense, aerospace, and transportation, along with a mature approach to its design and assurance. However, the increased use of software in more and more domains – embedded, connected, consumer, and infrastructure systems – means that similar approaches are needed across a broader range of industries. In addition, disruptive technological influences mean that traditional verification and assurance approaches in established industries will no longer remain applicable or sufficient. The High Integrity Software Conference aims to share the experience and know-how that will address these challenges within our industry and help build a trustworthy software ecosystem for the future.

Paul Butcher is the UK Programme Manager for AdaCore, sponsor of HISC, said:

“Now in its eleventh year, the High Integrity Software Conference remains steadfast and relevant in the calendar of industry and academia alike. It has also outgrown its home city of Bristol and will now fly the nest to take residence in the grand surroundings of the International Conference Centre Wales! This significant venue change provides opportunities to expand delegate numbers, which is much-needed due to the previous years being sell-out events. In addition, it opens up exciting new possibilities to expand the reach of the High Integrity Software community and ensure a more comprehensive collaboration throughout industry, governments, and academia. This year’s event program will be packed full of great talks, including two exceptional keynote speakers. The success of the Call for Presentations and the sheer number of people wanting to play a role in the event is a testimony to the popularity of this conference.
